William Lee Pirtle, 68, Farmersburg, passed away on Monday, Oct. 4, 2021. 

Bill was born in Sullivan County on Aug. 9, 1953, to Patricia Jane (Kelly) 

Pirtle and Jack Melvin Pirtle. 

Bill graduated from North Central High School (class of 1971), was drafted 

soon after graduation. Enlisted in the United States Navy where he served 

four years. 

Bill is survived by his “Best Dad” in the world, Jack Pirtle; brother, 

David (Jamie); daughter, Caroline (Dante); grandson, Myles; several nieces 

and nephews; and special friend, Deanne Tolbert.  

When Mike (11), Bill (10) and Dave (7) were very young, mom and dad took us 

to take guitar lessons once a week. So as a tribute to my folks and my 

Tizloe brothers, support your school’s local music programs. 

Visitation will be on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the chapel 

at Westlawn Cemetery, Farmersburg, with military graveside honors to
