Pirtle – John Pirtle, loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, left for life’s next journey July 8, 2008.

John, a native Texan, came to Los Alamos in 1953 and fell in love with the beautiful scenery. He made New Mexico his home for more than 55 years. John was a security inspector at LANL for 41 years and enjoyed 18 years of retirement.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, June Kyzer Pirtle; daughters Monica Davis and husband Matthew, and Robin Oliver and husband Dan; grandchildren Brian Davis, Sarah Pate and husband Kyle, and Dustin and Krista Cubitt; and many nieces, nephews and friends, as well as his loyal Sheltie, Shane.

A memorial service and celebration of John’s life will be held at 10 a.m. Friday July 11, at the First United Methodist Church in Los Alamos, with a reception following.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (www.michaeljfox.org) or personal favorite charity.
