Thomas Robert Pitts, age 60, of Grand Rapids, MN, died peacefully at home on September 3, 2016.  Tom was born in 1955 to Robert and Mary Pitts in Battle Creek, Michigan.  Graduating from Kellogg Community College and Michigan State University with a Bachelor's Degree, Tom began his career in Transportation/Logistics with Burlington Northern Railroad in St. Paul, MN; then moving to the Soo Line Railroad, and ending his professional career with Blandin Paper Company in Grand Rapids, MN.  Tom enjoyed working in his deer-friendly garden, repairing lawn mowers and laundry dryers, fishing, hunting, brewing wine and beer, and then enjoying that "occasional" beer with many, many dear and loyal friends.

Tom was preceded in death by his dad, Bob in 1976; sister, Jackie in 2013; and his mom, Mary in 2014.

Tom is survived by his wife, Peggy; daughter, Chloe; and son, Luke.

Per Tom's wishes, no formal service is planned.
