Born in Oberlin, KS on June 1, 1924 and peacefully passed in his home on May 8, 2018.
Son of Louise and Vaughn Pickett, he served in the U.S. Navy during WWII. He married Shirley Crockett in 1945 and they had three children, Janet, Douglas and Robert. He was proud of being an Eagle Scout, of being an air traffic controller in the early years of the F.A.A., leading the family band, "The Mellow Notes," winning local golf tournaments, and travelling the world with Shirley. He enjoyed fishing, boating and spending summers in Kill Devil Hills, NC with family and friends. His kindness, endless energy and generosity will be missed by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. No services are planned at this time.
