Jon Pittenger of Glenwood Springs passed away Nov. 3, 2009. He was 50.
Jon was born in Columbia, Mo. on July 16, 1959, to Jean Pittenger of Phoenix, Ariz. and Dee Scholar of Columbia Mo.
Jon and his wife, Cindy, moved to the Roaring Fork Valley in 1993 from Florida and spent 11 of those years in Carbondale.
As a master craftsman, Jon’s woodwork will be remembered all over the valley. He loved the outdoors with a passion. His favorite summertime activities were floating the rivers with his family and friends and mountain biking with his sons.
In winter, he made for the black diamond ski runs at Aspen Highlands and could always be seen with his blue eyes twinkling and his smile flashing. He shared his outdoor time in the spring and fall with the Glenwood Soccer Club, coaching youth soccer.
He is survived by his wife, Cindy of Glenwood Springs; sons Chase and Shane; daughter Sophie; parents Jean Pittenger of Phoenix, Ariz. and Dee (Paul) Scholar of Columbia, Mo.; sisters Lee (Daniel) Mendoza of Denver, Andrea (John) Contant of Boca Raton, Fla., Elizabeth (James) Tomlin of Phoenix, Ariz. and Christine (Michael) Dell of Deerfield Beach, Fla.; brothers Barry (Leigh) Pittenger of Franklin, Tenn. and James Pittenger of Scottsdale, Ariz.; and many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Pittenger family fund at any Alpine Bank.
Cremation has taken place, and a memorial service will be held at Church at Carbondale on Nov. 8, at 1 p.m.
