Anchorage resident, Steven Douglas Pittman, 57, passed away March 16, 2013 at his home. His death was apparently due to natural causes from untreated hypertension.

A celebration of Steve's life will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, March 24 at Cremation Society of Alaska, 7216 Lake Otis Parkway, Anchorage. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations on Steve's behalf to your favorite charity are requested. Rick and Ted request you join them in sharing your stories and memories of Steve. This will be a casual attire celebration.

Steve was born November 3, 1955 in Washington, D.C. As a military dependent, Steve and his family traveled throughout the United States until 1970 when Anchorage became his home. Locally, he attended both Service and Bartlett High Schools. He graduated in 1975 from Bartlett High School. Over the years, Steve worked throughout Alaska in the construction industry. His life experiences have taken him from Prudhoe Bay to Southeast Alaska, and all points in between. More recently he worked as a carpet installer for a local Anchorage business. He was planning on returning to school in the summer of 2013 for continuing education in the welding industry.

His brothers remember: "Steve was a man with a big heart, cared for his family and friends, and loved his Alaskan home." Since high school, Steve developed a passion for downhill skiing. He occupied summer months with a little salmon fishing and camping. His other interests included his love of music and movies. Steve enjoyed a wonderful sense of humor, and was always quick with a joke.

Steve is survived by his two younger brothers Rick Anderson, of San Diego, CA, and Ted Pittman, of Laguna Hills, CA. Steve was preceded in death by his parents Mary Emma Wiggins and Elbert (Pitt) Pittman. Rick and Ted would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Steven's best friend since high school, Chris Wooster. Chris and his family have always been there for Steve, and their friendship has always endured for over four decades. Steve will be missed by his brothers and his best friend Chris.
