Billy Wade Pierce, Jr., was born on September 12, 1962 in Muskogee, Oklahoma, the son of Billy Wade Pierce, Sr., and Jo Ann Pierce. Affectionately known as "Jr." by his brothers and sisters and "Uncle Jr." by his nieces and nephews, Billy Jr., attended School in Tullahassee, Oklahoma, where he graduated from Carter G. Woodson High School. He had a talent for baseball and played on a competitive team until he reached high school.
After graduating from high school, he began working for Griffin Foods for over 20 years. Later, he worked in other manufacturing vocations including Dal Tile and Boral Brick Company in Muskogee.
Billy Jr. had a great love for fishing and hunting. He was taught these hobbies at the age of 5 by his Dad, Billy Sr. He developed a love for both, but his true love was fishing. His favorite fish was Crappie and his greatest challenge was trying to catch "the big one!" He often told the story of a 64 pound, flat head he caught on a limb line in the Arkansas river.

He was preceded in death by his son, Tajmarron Pierce, his father, Billy Pierce, Sr., his brothers, Michael and Whitney Pierce, his step-dad, Willie Carter, his step-brother, Bobby Carter and his step-sister, Helen Carter.
He will be dearly missed with his comic actions and adventurous expeditions, along with his favorite quotes.........." Your Crazy as all out doors", "You ain't no good" or "You sorry low life" as he laughed out loud.
