Thomas Kenton Pitt (1924 - 2012)
Today would have been my Dad's 90th birthday. He really wanted to live to be 90 but he did make it to 88. Even though it has been almost 2 years since his passing I still find myself thinking I will ask Dad about this because he would know. I have just returned from London England I miss telling him all about it - he loved England and talking about it.
My Father was a very smart, humble and loving man. You could ask him about anything and he would know. You would always find him with his computer in front of him catching up on the news or just surfing. He could quote Shakespeare and many different poems. One of his favourite was the Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.
I received a wonderful complement about my Dad not too long after he died. I was at my Son's Engineering graduation dinner and we were seated with three other families when my Dad"s name came up. The father of one of the graduates was so excited to know that I was the daughter of Tom Pitt and Matthew was the grandson that it made me feel I was talking about Brad Pitt! He just could not believe I was his daughter and his excitement was due to how much he thought of my Dad. This man had worked with Dad and just admired him so much - Dad retired in 1986 . My Dad was a great 'Person'.
Dad took care of us all and he is greatly miss by us. As a little girl I have fond memories of climbing onto my Daddy's lap and him cuddling me, putting me to bed at night and tucking me in and not minding when I told my school that he was fishermen (he really was a Marine Biologist Research Scientist with a PhD)
Dad you are missed so much but I am glad you are there taking care of Michelle (your little turnip).
Happy Birthday Dad
