Obituary for Rickey James Pittman

Rickey James Pittman
July 31, 1954 ~ September 24, 2017

Rickey James Pittman, 63, was born July 31, 1954 to Sylvesta Pittman and Ethel Worley in Oklahoma City, OK and departed this life surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer.  

Rick retired in 2012 after working for 26 years at Armstrong World Industries in Stillwater, OK.  He was a proud Chickasaw Native and he studied the culture, music, art and the language.  He enjoyed fishing and target shooting.  He also enjoyed his Harley back when he was able to ride.   He was a devoted husband, father and friend and was the patriarch of the family.   

Rick attended Capital Hill High School in Oklahoma City, OK.  He married the love of his life Deborah Alexander on June 29, 1973 and had a daughter Michelle in 1974 and a son Mike in 1977.  They lived in the Oklahoma City area for 14 years before relocating to Stillwater, OK for 5 years.  They found their home and settled in Perkins, OK in 1992.

Rick was preceded in death by his parents Sylvesta Pittman and Ethel Worley.

Rick leaves behind his wife of 44 years, Debbi; a daughter Michelle Smith and her husband Bill Smith; a son Mike Pittman and his fiancée Jackie McGlugritch; a brother Ron Morgan; grandsons Michael, Nick and Caleb; granddaughters Karlee and Cayden; and many nieces, nephews and other family members.  

Rick enjoyed family gatherings with good food and good times and he would want it to continue in his honor.  His favorite holiday was Thanksgiving, he loved sitting on the deck in his backyard, he loved road trips, hard work and cherished moments with his grandsons Michael and Nick as well as his surrogate grandsons.  He was a man of his word and had strong family values that he passed down.    

At Rick's request, there will be no funeral services.  There will be a private celebration of life for him at their home.
