During his lifetime, Richard Pearman brought music to the local community. He played his trusty fiddle with the Moonlight Ramblers and entertained residents of local nursing homes for 50 years.

Now, even in death, Pearman will continue to bring music to Iola.

Pearman died in 2016, just shy of his 99th birthday, and left a memorial fund to benefit the Bowlus Fine Arts Center and Allen Community College Endowment Association.
