Mr. Dolan Jeffrey “Jeff” Pittman, age 64, went to be with the Lord on Friday, Aug. 28, 2020.

He was born on Nov. 27, 1955 to the late Ernest and Dola (Lowe) Pittman in Ahoskie, North Carolina.

Jeff was a member of South Boston Church of Christ. He was a former affiliate of National Alliance for Mental Illness. In 2006 Jeff was the recipient of Lilly Reintegration Award with Eli Lilly Company. He loved to read his Bible, be with family and friends, brag about his granddaughter and watch UNC Tarheels basketball. As a young man he loved singing in the choir. He loved “Gunsmoke,” “Leave it to Beaver,” the “Andy Griffith Show” and always tuned in to the news.  

Left to cherish his memories is his son, Jeffrey “Adam” Pittman, of Virgilina; his daughter, Rachel Marie Pittman of Roanoke; granddaughter Virginia Ann “Ginny” Sells and her father, James of Concord, North Carolina; the mother of his children, Gloria C. Crute of Roanoke; siblings Donna (Dan) Miles of Raleigh, North Carolina, Bruce (Elizabeth) Pittman of Ahoskie, North Carolina, Mary Lynn (Danny) Rawls of Ahoskie and Roland “Bo” Pittman of Ahoskie; uncle and aunt Richard “Dick” and Loli Lowe of San Diego, California and Ruby Lowe of New Bern, North Carolina; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to Jeff’s “Uber,” Mrs. Terri Lynn Hazelwood of Scottsburg and everyone at Southside Community Services Board for all their support given to him through the years.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 4, 2020, at South Boston Church of Christ with Pastor Doug Bowen officiating.
