John Daniel Pitcher Obituary
Phillipians 1:21. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
John Daniel Pitcher, age 87, died December 5, 2017 due to complications from metastatic melanoma. He was born on August 28, 1930 to Charles Hyrum Pitcher and Hazel Sibley Pitcher in his grandparent's farm house in Nichols, NY on his brother Ben's second birthday. Joined the U.S. Air Force in 1950. Married Shirley Irene Dalbey on December 21, 1951. Served as an MP in Korea and was released from the Air Force in 1954. Thank you God, for Dan's love for God's world--deserts, mountains, seas and forest. He loved growing roses and raising quail but was best known for his love of rocks and minerals. He was also fascinated by antique bottles. He also loved crafting wood and made many crosses, some of which hang in churches throughout Ogden, Utah. He is survived by: His wife, Shirley, and their three children--William David (Valerie Clear), Charles Gifford (Anastasia Serrano) and Susan Marie (Steven Stoneking), as well as 9 grand children and 8 great grand children. He is also survived by a brother, Ben. He is preceded in death by a brother, James Luke, and William's first wife, Patricia Ilene. Thank you God, for those who cared for Dan--Our church, Ascension Lutheran, who gave many blessings; for Summit Assisted Living and Brighton Home Health and Hospice; and Dr. Richard Frame of Utah Cancer Specialists and Dr. Jeffrey Tingey of Intermountain Healthcare at Taylorsville. Instead of flowers, please donate to either Ascension Lutheran Church or The Utah Cancer Foundation. Rest in Peace, my dear husband of almost 66 years. We will be celebrating our next anniversary on December 21 and your first Christmas with Our Lord in Heaven. Funeral arrangements are pending but are tentatively planned for Friday, December 8, 2017 at Ascension Lutheran Church in Ogden Utah. Burial will follow at Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch. Details will be available through Myers Mortuary.
