In loving memory, Ronnie Pitt

    Ronnie Allen Pitt,75, passed away on March 5, 2024. He was born October
    1, 1948 to Hazel and Verlin Pitt. He was one of seven children. He was
    preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Carolyn, and granddaughter,
    Lacie Griffin. He is survived by his four children, Robbie, DuWayne,
    Christine, and Brian, his 16 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, his 6
    siblings, and many nieces and nephews.
    He grew up living in many places but considered Lander, Wyoming his
    hometown where he met Carolyn Taylor, who became his beloved wife of
    53 years. He worked in a number of different careers but began in the
    oilfields, shooting woodpeckers off the wooden derricks, but eventually
    became a driller. After that, Ronnie worked in various uranium mines in
    Jeffrey, Wyoming.
    Following an injury in 1986, he attended Casper College and became an
    LPN. With his degree, he chose geriatrics as his focus and worked in
    various nursing homes providing care for the elderly residents. After over
    20 years in that field, he decided he needed a change, and took a security
    guard position down in Texas.
    He and Carolyn returned to Wyoming in 2019 after she received a
    diagnosis of cancer. She passed in 2020, and the following years were
    complicated for him by COVID 19 and severe restrictive lung disease. He
    finally fully retired in September of 2023 to focus on his health.
