Pittenger Jerry L Pittenger. In loving memory of Jerry L Pittenger, March 30, 1947-January 2, 2014. A resident of Powell, Ohio, Jerry passed away peacefully at home with devoted family at his side after a courageous battle with cancer. Jerry was born and raised in Shelby, Ohio. He graduated from Shelby High School and continued on to receive a BS degree at Miami University and a MS degree at Ohio State University. Jerry spent his professional career of 37 years at Battelle Memorial Institute. He was an Eagle Scout and a 50 year member of the American Radio Relay League. He was born to the late Russell D. Pittenger and Marcella (Jane) Pittenger and was the loyal husband of 45 years to Deborah K. (Johnston) Pittenger. Jerry will be forever remembered by sister, Pamela J. Pittenger Hall (Danny) of Tucson, Arizona; two beloved daughters, Abigail L. Pittenger of Delaware, Ohio, Shawna L. Ulicne and husband, Michael G. of Powell, Ohio; and two especially treasured grand children, Michael A. Ulicne and Alexis B. Ulicne; along with several dear nieces and nephews and countless loyal Amateur Radio friends. Jerry loved being with his family and close friends. His passion in life was designing and building amateur radio equipment. That passion led to developing an enjoyable retirement business making Morse Code Keyers. He will be remembered with smiles as a kind, generous, loyal and focused husband, father and friend. A Celebration of Life and Open House will be announced at a later date. Family wants to thank the Vitas Hospice Organization for their kindness and assistance. Arrangements by O. R. WOODYARD NORTHWEST CHAPEL.
