Thomas A. Pittenger

May 20, 1932 – January 15, 2018

Thomas Allan “Pitt” Pittenger passed away peacefully in his home January 15, 2018. A life-long resident of Wooster, Ohio, Tom Pittenger graduated from Wooster High School in 1950 and from Kent State University in 1954. After college, Tom married Elizabeth C. Funk in 1956, a union that lasted until her death in 1995. Tom served in the army in Germany from 1955-1957, after which he worked for over 30 years as a Project Manager for Freeman Construction Co. in Wooster. Tom and Elizabeth “Liddy” Pittenger were both members of Westminster Presbyterian Church.

Throughout his life, Tom was involved in numerous civic organizations, including the Wayne Center for the Arts, the Wayne County Historical Society, The Wilderness Society of Stark Co., and others. In addition to being an architect, Tom was an avid artist and photographer. Over the years, however, his primary commitment was to the Boy Scouts, through Buckeye Council’s Killbuck District and especially the Pee Wee Hollow scout camp.

In addition to his wife, Tom was preceded in death by his sister, Ann L. Pittenger. He is survived by his brother, Frederick L. Pittenger; his three children-- Sharon E. Pittenger; William R. Pittenger and his wife, Patricia, and two grandchildren, Justin and Bailey; Robert A. Pittenger; and his cousins James A. Stefanski and Nancy G. Huebner.

Our deepest condolences to your family for your loss. The memories that were created at your house growing up, were thanks to your Mom and Dads commitment to their family and friends. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Our condolences, thoughts and prayers are with you. So many great memories of your Dad and Mom and how they welcomed so many of us from the neighborhood into their home and lives. May God and the love of family and friends be with you all.

Prayers of comfort for your family. Tom enjoyed stopping by the office at Westminster Presbyterian Church to talk. Although I only knew Tom the last 7 years, his visits were always welcome. He will be remembered fondly by their friends at Westminster.

We are sorry to hear of the loss of your father. We got to know him quite well when he came into The Shack to eat. May you find comfort in knowing that he has completed his journey on earth, and you will be reunited with him someday!

Candy & Mark

Tom stopped in to visit with us many times over the last 15 years at Roomscapes to talk about world affairs, city problems and life in general. He always smelled of pipe tobacco and reminded me so much of my father who has been gone for many years. I always tried to stop what I was doing and sit down to talk with him for a bit when he came by. He will be missed.

Tom stopped by Roomscapes many times over the last 15 years to discuss politics, world issues, city problems and life in general. He loved talking over a cup of coffee and visiting with us and I made sure to stop whatever I was doing to talk with him as he reminded me of my father who also smoked a pipe. He will be missed by the ladies at Roomscapes downtown.

So sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. Both he and your Mom will be well remembered for their many volunteer efforts to the Scouting, Church and Library Communties. I was honored to know them both.
