Jeffrey A. Pitts, Sr.

Jeffrey Allen Pitts, Sr., of Carmel, was born on February 23, 1967, in Rushville, the son of Frank A. and Linda Carole Smith Pitts. Jeff served his country as a member of the Indiana National Guard, and his community as a law enforcement official. He retired from public service after acting as an officer with Washington Township Schools, the marshal in Trafalgar, Indiana, and a deputy with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department where his office was housed at Union Station in Indianapolis. Jeff was able to fulfill his ambition of helping people and bringing them peace not only through his civil service, but also as a minister with the Disciples of Christ Church. In his free time he loved to fish, and spend time with his family and his dog, Noah. On Sunday, March 26, 2017, at the age of 50, Jeff passed away at his residence.

Jeff’s memory will be cherished by his son, Jeffrey (Amber) Pitts, Jr., of Speedway; his father Frank (Donna) Pitts of Rushville; his mother Linda Smith Pitts of Carmel; and his siblings, Frann (Phil) Hedges of Indianapolis, his twin brother, John Pitts, and Raelynn (Dave) Smith, both of Carmel, and Rhett Pitts of Rushville. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews, and many other relatives and friends. Jeff was preceded in death by a niece and his grandparents.
