Obituary Condolences

Ronnie Earnest (Ron) Hittson, age 51, passed away early Thursday morning, April 2, 2009, in Curry County near Clovis, NM.
Ron was born February 12, 1958, in Amarillo,TX. His parents were Bill and Betty Hittson of Tucumcari. Toward the end of high school, he relocated for time to Rosebud before moving on to Nara Visa where he drove for the Stull Trucking & Feed Company. He later moved back to Amarillo, TX, for a short time and then returned to Tucumcari where he worked full time with the Tucumcari Mountain Cheese Factory and part time with Daniel's Construction.
He was a strong man, independent and direct, but also introspective and fiercely loving of his family and close friends. He was equally skilled in sharing stories of his childhood as he was in coaxing back scratches from unwary family members. He enjoyed his career of truck driving, but time recalls his true passion in a young Ron riding his horse along the length of the Tucumcari Drag. He may have traded bridle for keychain, but he never gave up the cowboy life style.
Surviving Ron is his wife, Carilyn Hittson; their children, Katelind and Chase both of Nara Visa, NM, Nikki Craig of Tucumcari, NM, Mercedes Hittson of Albuquerque, NM, Emerson Gooding of Missouri, Alex Hittson and Max Hittson both of Albuquerque, NM; his brothers ,Jack Hittson and wife, Tonia of Amarillo, TX, and Gary Hittson and wife, Sarah of Tucumcari; eight grandchildren along with five nieces and five nephews. Also survivng is his stepfather, Albert Mayfield of Tucumcari.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Betty Hittson.
Services celebrating his life will be Friday morning, April 10, 2009, at 10:00 AM in the First Baptist Church with Pastor Jason Bruce officiating.
Pall bearers will be Kenny Hampton, Gene Cox, Jr., Randy Wolffarth, Dale Stull, Steve Littell, Abel Aragon and Monty Sasser.
Following the services, interment will take place in the Nara Visa Cemetery at Nara Visa, NM.
Arrangements are by Dunn Funeral Home, Tucumcari NM, 575 461-3815.
