James William “Bill” Pittman passed away Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017 at age 97 at home in Roseville, Calif.  

Born in Prairie Grove, Ark., he was one of six children born to Porter and Maud Pittman.  

The last of his family, he was also preceded in death by his first wife Virginia of 50 years, and his second wife Marian of 12 years.   

He is survived by his sons, Edward (Deanne) of Amarillo, Texas, and John (Tracy) of Roseville, Calif.; three stepdaughters: Claire Bushong Schack (David) of Elkhorn, Neb., Rebecca Palmer (Tim), and Sally Schultz, of Tulsa, Okla.; eight grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.  

He served in the US Army during World War Two in both Alaska and Europe. After returning from the war, he moved to Liberal where he had extensive agri-business dealings including farming, trucking, ranching and grain merchandising.  

He was a hardworking, loving man who was quick with a smile and joyful to all.  

He was the sole caregiver for his first wife, Virginia during her long illness and did everything he could to support his second wife, Marian, during her long illness as well.  He was an example of love and compassion to his family.   

• There will be two services. One will be a funeral mass at St. Rose of Lima, in Roseville, Calif. on Nov. 3, 2017 at 10 a.m.  The second funeral service will be Nov. 8, 2017 at the First United Methodist Church in Liberal at 10:30 a.m.
