This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Russell Pitts, 58, born on December 2, 1950 and passed away on June 25, 2009. We will remember him forever.

Today would have been your 65th birthday.  I remember how much we looked forward to growing old together.  I love you as much today as I did then  It is so hard wtching our children have babies and growing up.  I know you are watching over us from Heaven but I still wish you were here with us.   Our babies are all grown and all are married .  Our grandchildren are growing up even the new one you only held from Heaven.   Keep an eye on the grandbabies there in Heaven with you so you can introduce me to them  .   You would be so proud of how well they have all turned out and are so much like you in so many ways.  Dallas has a great new job and Shane has been accepted to college.  Jared, Ryan, Madison, and McKenzie ask about you and know you are nana's honey when they see you in pictures.  So many changes yet I am still frozen in time.  I love you and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

"Russ was always a favorite with us......he was more than a cousin to Rick. I remember when he came out to Utah and called to ask for directions to our home; sald he was in 'Toolie'. Rick thought for a minute and figured out it was Tooele [towila], and told him he had passed us quite a ways. 'Well, I'll just have to turn around'. We miss you , Russell Pitts; you will always be with us."
