LaVar Pitts

March 19, 1963 ~ November 8, 2022 (age 59) 59 Years Old


Oscar LaVar Pitts born on March 19, 1963, passed away unexpectedly on November 8, 2022 at

the age of 59.


 He built many things throughout his life and lived in many places with his family

as a Foreman for Alta Construction and then a Superintendent for HBE Construction and

Saunders Construction. Everywhere he traveled he impacted the lives of those around him. He

was a loyal employee and was in the top of his field specializing in constructing hospitals.


LaVar was a gentle giant. To know him was to love him. You will never meet a kinder or more

respected man. He had a great sense of humor which he used at every opportunity to tease

and make people laugh. We always joked that he was “Papa, A Man, A Myth, and a Legend”

and his humble and kind nature made it true.


 He leaves a legacy with everyone he encountered, particularly with his family who he loved more than anything.


He is survived by his wife Sandra, children, Ashlee (Brendan) Donovan, Oscar Ashton Pitts, and

Spencer (Chelsea) Pitts; grandchildren, Braxton, Mackenzie, and Delaney Donovan, Avah

Rose Hindman-Pitts and Cameron and Charlie Pitts; Mother, Barbara Bluemel; siblings, Susan

(George) Jackman, Nancy (Kevin) Maxfield, Troy Leon Pitts Jr., Rex (Chris) Bluemel, Leonard

Pitts, Ruth (Merv) Buecker, Melanie (Ned) Walker, Melissa ( Stacey) Maxfield, John (Angie)

Pitts, Kay Bluemel, Laura Maxfield, and Carol (Scott) Laws and many nieces and nephews.


 He is preceded in death by his daughter, Cassandra; fathers, Troy Leon Pitts Sr., and Reed

Bluemel; sisters, Shelley (Gary) Cantlin and Bobbie (David) Johnson.


LaVar enjoyed being outdoors. He was always up for an adventure with his wife Sandi, who he

has been married to for 37 years. They forged their own path ahead with vigor and love. He

was an amazing man that led his family with a quiet determination. He will be missed and

remembered by all who knew him. Fly high old man.


His Funeral will be held on November 19, 2022. Receiving line 9:30am-10:45 Funeral 11:00am

at Urie Stake Center, 3815 Highway 414, Urie Wyoming, 82937. Interment at Fort Bridger Cemetery.
