Hugh Donald “Don” Pittman, M.D., passed away peacefully on Monday, September 22nd at the age of 83, while living at One Lincoln Park in Dayton, OH. He was born in Akron, and then spent his professional years in Dayton, and his retirement years in Lake Lure, NC, “G-d’s country” to him. He was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Emile Howard Pittman, and his parents, Hugh and Inez Pittman. Don is survived by his four children, their spouses and six grandchildren: son Jon Pittman and Care Heller-Pittman of Novato, CA; daughter Jane and Scott Sussman of Corona del Mar, CA and granddaughters Megan and Mallory; daughter Amy and Jack Kerr of Dayton, OH, grandson Adam and granddaughter Alisa; and daughter Sara and Rusty Kosel of Cincinnati, OH and granddaughters Emily and Erin. Don was an only child, growing up in Akron. He attended University of Akron where he met Emile. They married and moved to Columbus where he studied at The Ohio State University School of Medicine and she taught high school. They, then, packed up and moved to Johnson Air Force Base in Japan with Jon and Jane while he served for three years. They returned stateside with the addition of Amy and Sara, settling in Dayton where he started his medical practice in obstetrics/gynecology at Miami Valley Hospital. While the kids were young, Don and Emile bought a lake house on Lake Cumberland, KY where the family spent many hours boating, fishing, water skiing, playing cards, and being together. It was a place he could be away from the stresses of his medical practice and be with family. Upon retirement, Don and Emile sold their family home in Dayton moved to Lake Lure, NC, where they enjoyed over twenty years of golfing, boating, fishing, and mountain living. Don will be cremated with his ashes placed next to Emile in their beloved North Carolina. Service plans are pending.
