Albert Andrew Pitts
September 18, 1927 – November 12, 2020
Albert Andrew Pitts, 93, of Hughson, CA, passed away November 12, 2020. He entered into heaven peacefully with his daughters at his bedside.
Albert is survived by his two daughters, Mary (Vince) Sabean and Sharon Dias; seven siblings; eight grandchildren, Jeff, Chris, Marla, Brenda, Trisha, Jennifer, Desiree’, Andrew; and 15 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Marjorie, daughter Shirley and his parents Bud and Lina.
Albert was born on September 18, 1927 in Clifty, Arkansas. He was the oldest of 11 children. He met his future bride in a strawberry patch and after a brief courtship they were wed. Soon afterwards, they migrated west settling in New Mexico. They then started their family with the birth of their first daughter out of three girls and went to work on a cattle ranch. He thoroughly enjoyed his time breaking and training horses. A few years later, they moved to California and eventually settled in Hughson.
He had a career in woodworking, which included building cabinets and furniture, and he eventually retired from TNT Cabinets.
Albert was a lifetime member of NRA and E Clampus Vitus. Throughout his retirement years, he continued with his passion for wood work and greatly enjoyed taking care of horses, gardening, and watching his grandchildren play soccer. But nothing gave him more pleasure than playing Dominos or cards with his family.
Graveside services will be held at Lakewood Funeral Home in the Tuolumne Garden, 900 Santa Fe Ave., Hughson, CA on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 11:30 a.m.
