Morris Pitcher, 74, passed away in his home on April 18, 2023 in Providence Utah due to progressive cancer.
Morris was born to Willard & Seletta Pitcher of Trenton Utah. Morris grew up learning hard work on their family farm. Music was very much a part of his childhood life with his siblings: Jay (Paula), Dale (Rhonda), Rae Ann (Mike) & Iva Jean (Jeff). Morris was skilled in playing multiple musical instruments such as the trumpet, violin, piano, accordion, and on occasion, his Goliath harmonica.
As a young man, Morris attended Utah State University and served an LDS mission to Florida. He became a pilot and had enjoyed taking the plane out to fly on occasion. But throughout his life, his passion had been for FREEDOM! His desire was to fight for our God given rights and the Constitution of the United States. He wrote many articles on freedom and his belief in defending it. He always signed his articles using his pen name A. Pat Reaut
During his life Morris had multiple jobs, for the majority of his career he worked at Wescor/Elitech company. He also worked for J.K Business Machine and Buttercup Dairy. He also owned his own small business, Delta Enterprise.
He married Debra Lynn Helquist in the Logan LDS temple on November 19, 1972 and together had 4 children: Lynn, Diana (Brian R), Trina (Brian C), and Rebecca (Scott A).
Morris is survived by his wife, his children, his siblings, and his beloved grandchildren: Kaytalisa, Teryn, Keston, Seletta, ILamay, Jayris, Vincent, Gabe, Ayla & baby brother Oliver who is expected any day.
He is preceded in death by his parent’s Willard & Seletta Pitcher along with other loved ones that have awaited his return.
