With profound sorrow, the family of John Pittman announces
his passing Sept. 23, 2007, at home surrounded by his
loved ones. Since May 2005 he fought a courageous battle with leukemia.
Born Jan. 15, 1945, at St. Brendan's, Bonavista Bay, N.L.,
he was the eldest son of Kathleen (Furlong) and Jack Pittman. His happy
childhood days were spent in the wonderful Whitney Pier Community. After
three years in the armed forces, he returned to school in 1964 to further
his education. Upon graduating from St. Francis Xavier University in 1969,
he began his teaching career at South Bar School, transferring to Malcolm
Munroe Junior High when it opened, retiring in 1998. A truly gifted teacher,
John was a very kind and generous soul who was admired by all who knew
him. He was always a happy person with a great sense of humour who could
keep you entertained with his lively stories. Fishing was a great joy to
him and he was also a very talented woodworker. He was an active volunteer
and his willingness to give so freely of his time and talent will continue
to inspire those who knew and loved him.
John is survived by his loving wife, Marguerite (Farrell). He was the
much loved dad to his children, Stephen(Allison), North Carolina, Janet,
Halifax, Brent (Jennifer), Toronto. He is survived by his dear siblings,
Art (Kay), Halifax, Gail (Nick) Bruvels, Stewiacke, Helen Nash, Ontario,
Tina (Wendell) Connors, Howie Centre, Gordon, Ontario. John will be deeply
missed by his mother-in-law, Eileen Farrell (Lawrence, deceased) and
his in-laws, Adrian (Janice), Bernie (Margo), David (Margie), Lillian
(Bruce) Andrews, Larry (Kim) and Maurice. He is also survived by many
nieces and nephews and also many good friends. He was predeceased by
his parents, Kay and Jack Pittman and his sister, Margaret. Faith, family,
friends --- this motto sustained John throughout his lifetime. Fear
not nor grieve at my departure, you whom I have loved so much, for my
roots and yours are forever intertwined. Visitation for the late
Mr. Pittman will be held today (Tuesday) from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at T.W.
Curry Parkview Chapel. Funeral mass will be celebrated Wednesday at 11
a.m. in Holy Redeemer Church with Fr. Errol MacDonald officiating. Interment
in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks. Online condolences may be sent
