Charles B Stitt, 75, of Marble Hill, Mo., died on Feb 8, 2020, at River City Living Community in Jefferson City, Mo. Born on Nov. 27, 1944, in Morris, Illinois, he was the son of Lyle B. and Mary Lois Ames Stitt.
He moved to Marble Hill in 1992 with his wife Lois Stitt and family to work as a farmer and draftsman. Southeast Missouri is where Lois and Chuck raised their family of five children. Chuck (as he is known to friends and relatives) loved to tinker on old cars and had many restoration projects in the works at all times. In his younger years his career as a draftsman at John Deere in Moline led him to a love of all things John Deere. He would frequently be found admiring, working on, and engaging in conversations on all things John Deere. He was a loving father and was always there to support and help when needed by family or friends.
He is survived by five children: Nathan (Holly) Stitt, Crystal Allen, Jenny (Jonny) Kent, John (April) Stitt, and Anthony Stitt; a brother Jerry (Dixie) Stitt; a sister Marilyn Anderson; and eight grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, and three brothers.
