One of the few remaining men of “The Greatest Generation” has gone to his final reward and leaves a void in the Hillsville‑Galax community. We have lost an outstanding citizen.
John K. Pitcher died at his home on Gladesboro Road on Jan. 19.
A veteran of World War II, he served in the 3rd Infantry Division, U.S. Army for three years and saw active duty in Germany.
He was a Master Gardener and grew flowers and a variety of trees which he donated to beautify the Hillsville‑Galax area. The fruits of his efforts may be seen in many places here.
