The Legend of David Pitt

David Allen Pitt also known as Beloved One was welcomed into heaven by Jesus and His multitude of Angels on March 13, 2020. David was the son of Gary W. Pitt and De’ette M. Pitt. Born on April 26th, 1979 in Lander Wyoming the world finally had purpose. He was the younger brother of Gary Pitt II, Alex Pitt, and the older brother of Nickolas Pitt. He sired four children (That he knows of) three daughters; Danielle, Danica, and Dakota Pitt, and one son Emitt Pitt and in that order. He had two wives (Not at the same time) Dawn who is the mother of his daughters and Heather who is the mother of his son and latest. He was a young grandpa to his granddaughter Laura Meche as well. His legacy does not end with him. David grew up all over the American west such as Alaska, Arizona, Nevada, and Wyoming but after getting stuck in Fort Polk, LA by the Army he settled in to his central command base in Westlake, LA. He didn’t care much for it but he accepted it in order to be close to his kids who were the greatest happiness in his life. David was always meant for big things and by living there, he sacrificed the big things that don’t matter for the little things that do.

David was a social butterfly. He was the most loving and caring person. He was like no other. He was the best friend a person could have. He was always helping those in need. We depended on him because he was dependable motivated by love. He was the least judgmental person. He saw the good in people. He was a miner like much of his family. He was a 19 Delta Cavalry Scout in the US Army. He acted in TV, film, and commercials. He was a singer and frequently sang to packed houses during Karaoke and though he didn’t care to listen to music often he was a great dancer. His greatest and most dedicated role was dad, son, brother, grandpa, friend, and husband. If you asked him what his job was, He would say, “It was to live life.” We all know his real job was to take care of everyone around him.

He was the best looking and favorite to everyone and he was quick to remind people of that. He had an unbridled charisma that drew people to him. His beautiful smile was bright and genuine. His soul shined through the darkness of this world. He loved adventure, road trips, riding his bike, driving his Jeep, fishing, hunting (though he didn’t like killing as he was a lover not a fighter but don’t piss him off because he could kick some butt if need be.) He loved to make people laugh and in doing so made him laugh. He strived at and excelled at making others happy and feel loved. He was a man of adventure.

His life was as beautiful as he was but not as beautiful as he is now. He was a blessing to this world. We are grateful to him and to God for him.

Psalm 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

David,

Family, Friend, Never Forgotten!

Heaven is a place that is far better than we can ever imagine and beyond our greatest dreams. It will be joyous when we all shall meet, and remain together for ever; but the greatest joy of heaven is to be with the Lord, to see him, live with him, and enjoy him for ever.

Heaven is just a hug away from the Lord. We should support and comfort one another in times of sorrow.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4: "Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God."

As long as we have memories,
yesterday remains.
As long as we have hope,
tomorrow awaits.
As long as we have friendship,
today is beautiful.

Judy, Billy & Bill Mills

David was my husbands cousin. I met him back in 2003 when we had our second child. I remember he made a special trip to bring us a crib for our daughter. From the start he treated me like family. We would go to talk over the years and every time he would come by we would always make it a point to go and see him and his family as they passed through town. David was always a delight to hear from and talk to. I loved how David would see the world and the people in it. He truly was a family man. He is going to be missed by all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family! Love Raymond, Dorothy, Owen, Laura, Suzanna, and James.

David was my friend for many years. He was one of a kind..Gentle, Sweet, Very Respectful and Such a Handsome Angel! He loved all his babies the same. He was an Awesome Actor and could melt your heart when he sang Karaoke to us! I will miss our text and phone calls. He was a down the street neighbor and will Miss the pass by my house and the wave. God gained another Beautiful Angel. I will Always remember you Handsome David! Love Momma Patsy!

David was a good man; great father and friend. Although I had only known him for a short period I know that I was Blessed to have been able to know and call him my friend. He always had a smile on his face and to make people laugh; truly loved his children and spoke of them quite often. He loved to sing karaoke and had a wonderful voice or set of pipes when he sang. I believe that God has another Amazing Guardian Angel in Heaven now watching over His family and pray that that will forever fell his presence in thier lives and hearts. I pray that God brings each and every one of your Family the peace and comfort that only He can give in this time of great loss.

I have so many memories of good times with David from the first time he and I sang karaoke together ( it was a "kamacaze" song, which is a song you've never sang before....a VERY explicit version of Summer Nights. Thinking back on it, I imagine he and Lyndon planned it), to standing in for an AWOL groomsman in a mutual friends wedding ( the picture is of he and my youngest granddaughter at the wedding), to helping my family during the loss of my grandson last year, to calling and checking on Flea when he gets admitted into the hospital for issues popping up in his battle with leukemia. Needless to say, NONE of us were prepared for THIS!! It has left each and every one of us reeling in shock and disbelief. But, knowing the David we all love, he'd do or say something crazy, off the wall, or just plain OUT THERE, to put a smile on our face and laughter in our hearts. You are going to be so missed, Man! We love you and I, personally, look forward to the day when I will see you strut up to me with your right arm poised, raised, and ready for the hug you have for me. In the meantime, give my grandson a hug and kiss from his Memaw and tell him how much he is loved and missed by me, please? Thank you for being such a great friend to us all and for allowing us to be a part of your legend!!

I’m truly very sorry for the families loss. I know words won’t heal the wounds in the difficult time. But I won’t take to much time. I’d just like to share a quick memory of David.
I know you’ll may not know me, but I worked at Market Basket there in Westlake. I seen David there throughout all my many years there as an employee. Although David didn’t know me personally. When he would come in my check out line, whether it was a good or bad day. He always brightened my day with some quirky, positive, and uplifting words. I would enjoy hearing of the milestones of his youngest son and how proud He was to be a dad once more.


My prayers are with you’ll ❤️

I met David on Facebook. We both came from the same Pitt family. Even though David and I never met, I felt like we had because of his humor and joyful personality. I am so sad about his passing but the good Lord knew it was his time. I know his love will stay in his children’s hearts forever .
