Dixie 'Dan' Pitts
Dan was born in England, Arkansas in 1940. On March 09, 2019, at the age of 78, he passed away in Tualatin, Oregon surrounded by his family.
Dan was very proud of his military service. He served in the U.S. Army and did two tours of Vietnam before joining the U.S. Navy as a Seabee. Dan finished his service as a civilian employee with the U.S. Air Force.
In his civilian life, Dan drove California tour buses, gas trucks and also worked for the Canby Area Transit as a driver. Dan often volunteered for many organizations, such as the Canby Adult Center and St.Patrick's Church Food Bank, but his favorites were the Canby/Aurora VFW and Auxiliary Post 6057.
Dan was very giving, always putting others ahead of himself, and would not want anyone to make a fuss about him. Per his request, there will be no funeral service.
Memorial contributions can be made to the Canby/Aurora VFW and Auxiliary Post 6057, then enjoy an A&W root beer float or a 7-Eleven pina colada Slurpee in his honor. We love you Poppy!
