Dennis R. Pitcher

May 24, 1945 — December 19, 2022

Dennis R. Pitcher

77, of Mooresville passed away on December 19, 2022, peacefully at home. Dennis was born on May 24, 1945 in Indianapolis, Indiana to the late Robert William Pitcher and Alice Lucille (Costin) Pitcher.


Dennis proudly and honorably served in the U.S. Army during Vietnam. Upon returning from service, he worked for the Speedway Police Department and retired from General Motors after 20 years of service in 2006. He was a member of Souls Harbor Church in Plainfield, American Legion Post #103, the V.F.W Post #1111 in Mooresville, Speedway Masonic Lodge #500, and the Murat Shrine.


Dennis lived life to its fullest, on his terms, often being mistaken as a Clint Eastwood look alike. Although stubborn at times, he had a deep love of family and enjoyed spending time with them as well as riding his Harley Davidson Tri Glide with his beloved wife Shirley, taking road trips across the country. He will be missed by his loving family and many friends.


In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Peggy Broadstreet and a son Dennis Pitcher, Jr.


He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Shirley (Nichols) Pitcher; children Kim (Lafe) Swinney, Karen Smith, Scott (Bernadette) Pitcher, Denise Smeltzer; grandchildren Logan Smith, Andrew Schrader, Jacklyn Engle, Cody Swaniger, Matthew Smeltzer, Sara (Mason) Altman, Aaron Pitcher, Brant Pitcher, Ki Swinney, Thomas Swinney and 8 great grandchildren.
