G. Fred Zitting

September 2, 1931 ~ July 1, 2014

G. Fred Zitting, born in La Grande, OR to John A. and Elsie Davis Zitting on September 2, 1931, passed quietly at home in Riverton, UT, surrounded by his beloved family on July 1, 2014. Out of his nine children, 41 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren, only one grandson preceded him in death. Fred also leaves behind his loving wife of 61 years, Roberta “Bobbie” (Nielson) Zitting, whom he met at BYU while obtaining his Bachelor of Science degree, and three special brothers, Jack, Roy and Carl.

He volunteered as an Army medic and was stationed at Fort Sam Huston in San Antonio, TX. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving the Lord as a stake missionary, Boy Scout leader, counselor, teacher and other callings. Working in the family retail business filled his younger life. He then opened his own Real Estate office as the designated broker, until he retired at the age of 68. Fred continued managing rentals in Wenatchee, WA, even after moving to Utah in 2003; he always said he would not ever retire. A great sense of humor endeared him to all, even his doctors and nurses. A good provider, both temporally and spiritually, we will miss him greatly.

Funeral Services were held on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, at 10:30 a.m. at the Field Cresent Ward building, 5246 West Gossamer Way (13700 South), Riverton, UT. A Viewing was held for friends and family on Tuesday from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m., prior to services at the Ward. Interment was held at the Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park South Valley Cemetery, Riverton, UT.
