In memory of

David Oscar Theodoriches

Sep 30, 1968
Feb 11, 2021


David Oscar Theodoriches was born on September 30th, 1968 in Hood River, Oregon to Sharon Maureen Stack and David Robert Pearson. Oscar passed away on February 11th, 2021 in Salem, Oregon peacefully in his home. Oscar fought through the pain for so many years and wanted to be there for his family and friends. In his final days, he was accompanied by his three children: Alitrise, Dre, and Ben along with his two sisters: Melannie and Teresa.

Oscar spent most of his career working within the dairy business. Oscar began working at Sunshine Dairy Foods back in the early 90’s. Oscar left Sunshine Dairy Foods early 2010 before they closed. Oscar would later find his way back to the dairy business at Umpqua Dairy in 2015. Unfortunately, Oscar had to medically retire in early 2019. Anyone who knew Oscar knew he loved to wake up every morning and go to work. Interacting with people and creating that humorous interaction is what made him such a personable individual. It was so difficult for Oscar to accept the circumstances of not returning to work. Oscar always turned a negative into a positive and found a new job…being at home, enjoying all his favorite hobbies and spending time with his family and close friends.

Oscar had many hobbies which included painting, drawing, wood & rock carving, glass etching, and many more artistic related topics. Oscar always loved to stay close to home but would certainly not want to lie around the house and be unproductive. There were always improvements to be completed around his home.

Oscar is survived by his Father: David R. Pearson his Children: Ben Theodoriches, Alitrise Theodoriches, and Dre Soderstrom, Oscar’s Sisters: Teresa Parish, Melannie Cleveland, Wendi Miller, and Karen Clark, Granddaughter: Lillian Soderstrom, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.  Oscar joins his mother in endearment.

    3.14.21 Your Dad passed. He wanted to be with you, Aunt Linda & of course your mom.
    I would sit with him & hold his hand, he would tell me stories...
    Some real & some real just to him.
    We talked long and hard about you & life.
    He had regrette not being there for Your Mom, Melanie & You. He questioned why he did what he did back then. We all know things happen for a reason, even when we don't understand the reason why.
    I am glad he is at peace. He didn't die alone Oscar - and you know your Dad didn't want to die he was afraid, as we all are afraid of the unknown.
    Wendi, Melanie & I were there with him as he passed.
    Mother Mary not knowing if he had been baptized asked us for permission. We agreed. She baptized him in the name of the Father , The Son & The Holy Ghost.
    She said he didn't have much time left. She had to go & about 5 minutes later your Dad Left us to be with you.
    I hope you both find comfort in each other Aunt Linda & your mom too.
    You all are missed much & will be until we are together again.

    Well brother, you have a bigger job ahead of you now. On Saturday, March 13 Dad followed you to heaven. He was so torn up over losing you. Please keep him busy, show him the best fishing spots and play nice! It's hard to believe you are both gone... Even though Aunt Linda would've waited longer, she must've needed someone by her side. Until we meet again ... Your sis, WENDi.

    I will never forget Oscar. The goodness and the kindness that he always showed. I didn’t get to see him often but always looked forward to the hug and friendship. I was honored to be a mother-in-law.

  4. Rick Coleman says:

    To my Best Friend, Oscar, you were a larger than life personality and I will always cherish the way too short amount of time we got to spend together. We met back in 2015 when you came to werk at Umpqua Dairy. We became fast friends and eventually best friends, “I reckon you were my Huckleberry,”You were ALWAYS there when I or anyone else needed help, always upbeat and humorous. I love you and will miss you dearly my friend. RIP and hold a spot in Heaven for me. Till we meet again ❤️

  5. Benjamin Theodoriches says:

    After a long and painful fight, you have finally found peace and are pain free. You are by far the strongest person I have ever met. Year after year you have pushed through the pain to be there for your family and friends. I love you Dad. You are so kind, caring, loving, artistic, and humorous. Everyone you met, you brought laughter and automatically created a friendship with.
    You are in a better place, pain free, looking down on everyone making sure we are all taken care of.
    There is not a day that goes by where I do not think about you. I feel like there is a hole inside of me that is empty and it will never be filled. I wish you were still here.
    Rest In Peace Dad. I will see you again one day. I love you so much.

  9. Teresa Irene Parrish says:

    You are my brother & my best friend. I want you to know how happy & rich $$$ you have made my life with your children that call me Aunt Teresa. Being there for Ben's birth made my world complete @ that time. I cut his cord , watching him take his first breath - we were both in tears of joy that day 10.27.99. Then we got Dre Oh happy day. 2 little boys. I got to have so much fun with them dressing them up like twins - everyone one would say twins ? LOL.
    Then came the birth of Alitrise the baby girl you had wanted & you talked about since you were a teen. Your family was complete.
    Oscar you did it.
    We have had our good times & our bad. We have shared our lives & for that I am greatful.
    You can make people laugh like no other person I know. Stand Up should have played a roll in your life, though it didn't I am glad you saved that part of yourself for your good friends & family.
    Of course I wish you were still here with us, I - We will miss you & will miss you every day we are apart.
    I'll be looking forward to the day we meet again.
    I LOVE YOU OSCAR more then you will ever know.
    Your sister Teresa
