Please share a memory of Luther to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Luther was the son of the late Luther A. Hitt, Sr., and Camilla Gildersleeve Hitt. He was predeceased by his daughter, Kimberly and is now holding her in his arms again. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Michelle. He is also survived by his children; Scott (Rita) Hitt and Colleen (John) Bunning, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren, his sisters; Gloria Dalsgard and Deborah Stubits, his brother, Howard Hitt, and many cherished friends. Luther was a native of Sullivan County, born in Woodridge and lived in Woodbourne. He proudly served his country in the Air Force for two decades, the majority being overseas during which he received many honors and metals. He returned to Sullivan County continuing his support and service to his community as a Deputy Sheriff. He was also an active member of the Woodbourne Fire Company #1 and was awarded 1990 Fireman of the Year. Luther was an avid motorcycle rider and with his wife, Michelle, sponsored and hosted Cats-cade in Woodbourne. They touched many lives and gathered motorcycle friends from across the U.S. and in Canada over several years. With his vibrant personality and infectious smile, he continued to encourage and support old friends while making new ones. Always offering a cup of coffee, cold soda, and a dish of candy or cookies, he never wanted anyone to leave the house hungry or thirsty. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue New York, NY 10065 or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place Memphis, TN 38105.
