Obituaries are so much more than a public notice that a friend or loved one has passed away.

Allen Ray Pitchford

11/13/1927 - 3/11/2020

Howie and Pat Proehl - Neighbors and friends

We've known Ray since the 70's, but really got acquainted in the early 90's, when he came to our door and introduced himself. We had waved at each other when he went passed our house. He and Millie joined our church after their son, Mickey joined. I had enjoyed their company as their hairdresser, also. Ray brought Priscilla Aderholtz to our church, as well, when he was well enough. Our prayers go out to you all, as I'm sure he will be missed, greatly. We won't be able to be there at the funeral, as my cousin died and her funeral is also on the day. We will be with you in spirit.
