Robert Lannon Fitts Obituary
November 26, 1925 -
December 28, 2018

Robert Lannon Fitts died December 28th in the Memory Care section of the Springs @ Greer Gardens at age 93, with his wife of 68 years by his side. He was born Nov. 26th, 1925 to Harry Fitts and Helen Lannon Fitts. He graduated from Orange High School in 1943 and then served in the army during WW 2 on the front lines in Belgium and Germany. Because of his excellent night vision, he was a runner and always said that job probably saved his life.

In 1950 he married Norma R. Foster in Enfield Conneticut.

He is survived by his wife, and a son, Glenn of Portland. A son Edwin Charles and a daughter, Sandra Fitts-Freeman died previously.

A lifelong interest in fixing and building things turned into his work as a heavy duty mechanic and welder.

He retired in 1987 and he and Norma enjoyed many years of Square Dancing, travel to Hawaii and trips in their RV. He also enjoyed reading bicycling, hiking, boating and cross country skiing.

Andreasons of Springfield will be in charge of cremation and at his request, there will be no service.
