Lorin Pitcher

March 23, 1941 — August 24, 2022


If tomorrow starts, without me, and I am not there to see.

If the sun should rise, and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today, while thinking of

The many things we didn't get to say.


I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time that you

Think of me, I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.


Lorin "Max" Pitcher joined his family and friends in heaven on August 24, 2022, surrounded by his family at the age of 81. Max Pitcher was born on March 23, 1941, to Elaine Hulse Pitcher and Joseph Lorin Pitcher in Ogden Utah. Ever since Max was a child, he loved the outdoors, and you would always find him talking about his next hunting or fishing trip. Max served in the Marines for 10 years and was deployed twice to Vietnam. He has met many friends all over the world and everyone who has met Max, instantly, fell in love with his humor and wit. He would always have a one-liner locked and loaded, he was ready, for any occasion. Max found his calling serving at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple.

Max is preceded in death by his loving wife of 33 years Mary Bateman Pitcher; his parents Elaine Hulse Pitcher and Joseph Lorin Pitcher; his older brother Joseph Larry Pitcher; and younger sister Debra Petersen. He is survived by his siblings Edgar LaVern Pitcher (Marilyn), Carol Lee Pitcher Pitkin, and Stephen Pitcher; his children Michael Pitcher (Melinda), Christine Lindhag, Micheal Tippetts, James Pitcher, Penny Wick (Mike), Tiffiney Tippetts, Jennie Kinder, Travice Pitcher (Ami), and Branden Pitcher (Gregory); as well as many grandchildren; great-grandchildren; nieces; nephews; and cousins.
