Larry John Pitcher

September 13, 1946 — January 7, 2023

Overland Park

 

Larry John Pitcher, 76, went to sleep on January 7, 2023, to await Christ’s return. Larry was born Friday, September 13, 1946, in Chicago Illinois. His parents were John and Helen Pitcher. He was proceeded in death by his two sister Lorraine Newer and Charlotte Curtis.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 55 years, Leilani (Charlton) Pitcher, their three children Todd (Caroline), Christine, and Rob; grandchildren Josie, Madison, Chris, and Gavin; and many additional family members and countless friends who respected Larry. His friends include hundreds of appreciative individuals who are blind or visually impaired. They continue to be blessed by Christian Record Services for the Blind and its National Camps for Blind Children, the nonprofit ministry he led from 1995 until his retirement in 2015.

Larry’s 40 years of ministry began in 1975 as pastor of the Garden City Seventh-day Adventist Church in Kansas. While senior pastor of the Olathe and Ottawa District from 1981-1987, a church plant was started which grew to become the West Lenexa Seventh-day Adventist Church. Before serving as CRS president, Larry pastored the Wichita South Church. Active in evangelism, he also established a teen club there and conducted a weekly businessmen’s Bible study with community friends.

“Larry was faithful, enthusiastic, and loved serving his God and his Church. This world is a better place because it was touched by the life and ministry of Larry Pitcher,” commented G. Alexander Bryant, chair of the Christian Record Services board of directors.
