Fuquay-Varina — Johnny Thomas Pittman, 75, passed away suddenly Wednesday, May 29, 2019, at home following a short illness.

Johnny is survived by his wife of 49 years, Peggy Brooks Pittman; sons, Jonathan Brooks Pittman of Fuquay-Varina, and John and James Pittman, both of Wilmington; daughter, Teresa Pittman of Wilmington; brother, Jerry Pittman, and his wife, Sherry, of Holden Beach; sister-in-law, Anne Howell of Wilmington; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Tom and Teresa Carter of Wilmington; and beloved nieces and nephews. He leaves behind numerous friends and neighbors to cherish his love and memories.

Johnny grew up in Wilmington and attended New Hanover High School, graduating in 1961. After serving four years in the U.S. Air Force, he went to work with Western Electric and worked all over the state for 13 years. He then went to work for Pfizer Medical in their newly developed diagnostic division and installed and maintained Danville, Virginia’s first C.T. scanner. He then moved to Fuquay-Varina because it was centrally located in the state and he was able to buy a home on the soon-to-be-opened Bentwinds Golf Course. He became a charter member, and for almost the next 40 years, he, Peggy and Jeb enjoyed what Johnny called “paradise.”

Johnny was a problem solver and started his own business in 1987, retiring in late 2018 after serving many loyal customers as an independent CT and MRI specialist for 32 years. The Pittman’s formed true and lasting relationships with so many friends and neighbors and counted themselves blessed in so many ways. He loved helping friends solve computer issues, making photo montages to commemorate special events, political debate and spending time on the beach. He also enjoyed his newfound passion for growing and nurturing flowering plants and tomatoes.

He will be remembered for his humor, outgoing personality and storytelling. Finally, and in many ways what most will remember about him, was his love for our country. He ended every toast, prayer, and blessing by saying, “and to the good men and women who are protecting this country and our way of life.”

Visitation will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., Sunday, June 2, at Thomas Funeral Home, 401 North Ennis St., Fuquay-Varina.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made to a charity of your choice.
