Thomas J. Pitstick Sr.

Tom Pitstick was granted his angel wings on January 4, 2023 at the age of 69. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Tom had touched during his short, yet very memorable life.

Tom graduated from Elder High School in 1972. After high school, Tom served 4 years in the Army, where he was in the 1st Battalion – 64th Armor. Tom and Rachel also married in 1972. They had their first son, Tommy in 1973 and their second son, Mike in 1976. After the Army, Tom returned back to his hometown of Cincinnati where he owned a valet parking Garage, Commerce Garage.

Throughout Tom’s life, he loved helping everyone around him. He was an amazing a handy man, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix or make himself. His family and friends meant everything to him. Some of his most cherished moments were grilling out with his family, watching horse races, and watching his beloved Bengals.

Tom will be missed more than we could ever imagine but his spirit will forever live within us.

He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and loyal friend to many.
