Harold Pittman

Saturday, June 5th, 2021

Harold Stewart Pittman, age 86, of Sedro-Woolley passed away June 5, 2021.  He was born November 29, 1934 to James Weaver and Ada (Laddie) Pittman in Nashville, North Carolina.

On August 20, 1954, he married his beautiful soul mate, Patsy Cabe and raised their family staying in the same home for 55 wonderful years before moving closer to town into their dream home.

Harold was the youngest of 11 siblings, he was never afraid of a hard days work as he had grown up on a large family farm.  He was always lending a hand to anyone that needed it, you never had to ask.  An amazing dad, father, grandpa and great grandpa, friend to all.  We are all so blessed.  He was a volunteer fireman for many years.  After various jobs, he began his career with the Sedro-Woolley Police Department where he developed lifelong friends that were considered family, retiring after 20 years.

Harold’s entire life was devoted to his family.  Nothing brought a smile as quickly as when his grandkids walked into the room.  He loved camping, fishing, hunting, car shows, a good hike or anything outdoors.  We all agreed roasting hot dogs with family was his favorite.  Often found at his feet was a family pet, Gracie.

Harold is survived by his two daughters, Debbie (Patrick) Conner and Vicki (Scott) Christofferson; three grandchildren, Kelli (Daniel) Segars, Brianne (John) Noyes, Krista Christofferson (Steve Barclay); three great-grandchildren, Alexis and Mackenzie Noyes and Kennedy, Issac and Ana Barclay; longtime family friend and fellow officer, Paul Taylor and many nieces, nephews and family members.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Patsy; parents, Weaver and Ada Pittman; two brothers, Grady and D. L., eight sisters, Lillian, Sadie, Maybell, Ruby, Virginia, Edith, Evelyn and Shirley.

Remembrances may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital which he and mom always supported.

A Graveside Service will be held at 2:00 PM, Thursday, June 10, 2021 at the Sedro-Woolley Union Cemetery.  Masks are appreciated.  A Celebration of Life will be at a later date.  Arrangements are under the care of Lemley Chapel, Sedro-Woolley.  Share your memories of Harold and sign the online guest register.        He asked so little but gave so very much.

    I will miss my Uncle Harold very much…I will always remember the story my Mom Virginia Burress told me about Uncle Harold on the day that I was born….he was 8 yrs old at the time…..she said that he jumped on his bike riding up and down the road telling everyone that he had a niece…he and the whole Pittman clan are all together now having a blast up in Heaven……

    Harold – you will be missed along with your great sense of humor and your love of family.

    I worked at SWPD with “Pitt” for 11 years. Many nights on graveyard shift listening to silence on the radio as he patrolled the streets and back alleyways of town. He ciukd be serious and a prankster, had a dry sense of humor and was a delight to work with.

    Pitt brought a sense of decency, honesty and pride in community to the City of Sedro-Wooley. He was fair and considerate to everyone he came in contact with.

    My memories of him will forever be in my heart and mind. He was the most decent person you could hope to meet. A role model for his family and community. He will be missed by all who knew him. The hands of God will keep him safe.

    You will be missed greatly, Officer Pitman.. I’ll always remember the talks we had when I was growing up.

  • Sherry Halverson Lynch

    Uncle Harold was the most quiet, soft spoken person I have known. I’m sure that he has joined Aunt Patsy for eternity. No more sickness. No more pain. He will be missed.

    I met your Dad almost 3 years ago through my Dad, Paul Taylor who I also met almost 3 years ago. When I would travel back to spend time with my Dad, we always had breakfast with all of his Cop buddies. Your Dad was always so kind to me and genuinely excited to see me when I visited. He was a terrific person, and I’m glad I had a chance to meet him and get to know him. Praying for your family at this sad time…….

  • Jan Taylor

    I’m reading this with tears. Paul and I always loved all the times we spent with your mom and dad. We had so many great dinners and coffee times with lots of laughter. Paul and your dad loved talking about the “old cop days”. I can’t believe they are now both gone. We miss them and truer friends could not be found.
