James Clovis Pittman, 87, passed away at Olive Grove Terrace in Olive Branch on Thursday, May 14, 2020. Born October 14, 1932, in Cadaretta, MS, he was the son of the late J.H. Pittman and the late Catherine Woods Pittman. He was a member of Broadway Baptist Church in Southaven, MS. He proudly served in the United States Army Feb 1953-1955. He retired in1991 after working 31 years for CASE/International Harvester.
After retirement James became a Gideon and found that distributing bibles was a blessing to others and a way to honor our Lord. James loved to grow things from cotton to soybeans on the farm, to a variety of vegetables in his huge garden at home. His favorite time of year was in the fall because he loved football season. He was an avid fan of the Ole Miss Rebels, and attending Ole Miss football games, or watching them on TV was his favorite pastime.
James and his wife Mary met at Mississippi College after his return from service in the Army during the Korean War. They were married on June 2, 1956, and have spent almost 64 wonderful years together. Above all, he loved his family and cherished the years with Mary and watching his family grow. They will miss him dearly, but they know he is now rejoicing in his Heavenly home.
Pryor Funeral Home is honored to be serving the Pittman family.
A Graveside Service celebrating his life will be held Thursday, May 21, 2020, at 3:00 pm at the Pittman Cemetery, Cadaretta, MS in Webster County. Rev. Albert Lee Pittman will be officiating.
Pallbearers will be Mike Philley, Jimmy Philley, Phillip Woods, James Shelby Sparks, Alfred Pittman, and Craig Pittman.
He leaves behind his wife of nearly 64 years, Mary B. Pittman; son, James Burt Pittman of Southaven, MS; daughters, Cathy Stevens of Memphis, TN and Jill (George) Hammond of Olive Branch, MS; grandchildren, Sarah (J.T.) Turner, Wes (Angelica) Pittman, Cole (April) Pittman, Grady Pittman Casey (Mike), Laura (Dave) Mann, Drew (Katie) Williamson, Benjamin Williamson, Amber Hammond, and Amy (Mikel) Connell; great-grandchildren, Ella, Olivia, Sutton, Campbell, Sawyer, Lori Lei, Quinn, Eadie Kate, Levi, June, Lydia, Garrett, Hadley, and Bradley.
