Avon: Lee passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 after a year – long battle with cancer.
He leaves behind his wife, Cindy Martens-Pitts and their children, Joel Pitts and Bethany DeLuca. He is also survived by 2 daughters, Sonya Boatman and Krista Keller and families, and his brother, Leslie Pitts and family.
Lee served in the United States Coast Guard. He retired from Gleason Works after a 48 year career, in which he traveled all over the world. He enjoyed the outdoors: camping, sailing, and fishing and was a fixer of all things, except for our broken hearts.
There will be a private celebration of life.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the nursing staff at the Palliative Unit at Strong, where Lee and his family received wonderful compassionate care and support.
In lieu of flowers, kindly consider memorial contributions to the Humane Society of Ottawa County, 2424 E. Sand Rd. Port Clinton, Oh 43452. Lee loved his rescue dogs and they were such a comfort to him as he struggled with his illness. Arrangements entrusted to the Kevin W Dougherty Funeral Home, Inc., Livonia-Honeoye.
