Charles Pittman, 92, of Searcy passed from this life Tuesday, April 2, 2024 surrounded by family who are comforted by the beautiful hope he and they share: eternal life in the presence of the Lord. He was born March 18, 1932 in Memphis, Tennessee to J.C. and Demetra Bennett Pittman, who preceded him in death. He was also preceded in death by his beloved wife of 28 years, Janet Watts Pittman.

He is survived by a son, Gary of Searcy; two daughters, Laura Rowan (Andy) of Little Rock and Kristen Arnette (Chip) of Branson, Missouri; five grandchildren, Bennett (Sarah), Caleb and Davis Rowan; Audrey and Aden Arnette and two great grandchildren, Addie and Drew Rowan. He is also survived by Mary-Rebecca Nalley, who referred to him as her ''Father figure''.

He retired as professor emeritus of English from Harding University, where he served on the faculty thirty-five years. Among his pleasant memories there were his twenty years as sponsor of Knights Social Club.

He was a longtime member of West Side Church of Christ, where he served twenty-three years as an elder. After he retired from that position, he served as the elders' secretary and in other behind-the-scenes capacities.

He lived a quiet, exemplary life of service to others.

At his request, there will be a graveside service at White County Memorial Gardens, Searcy, on Friday, April 5, 2024 at 1:00pm.
