<p>
Lieutenant Colonel <em>Peter Jay &ldquo;Pete&rdquo; Chittick</em>, Retired, passed away peacefully in his sleep on January 7, 2016 in Fredericksburg, VA. He was born in Washington, DC on August 23, 1933, son of Anna Elisabeth Wester (whose pre-immigration Swedish surname was Anderson) and Howard Allen Chittick. He spent his boyhood in McLean, VA and later in Clinton Corners, NY, where he worked on the family farm. Pete&rsquo;s enthusiasm and talent for paper-delivery, hunting, muskrat-trapping, and navigating the woods would serve him well throughout a lifetime of adventure and service.</p>
<p>
He graduated from Pine Plains High School, NY, where the argumentative southern transplant was affectionately called &ldquo;Rebel&rdquo; by his 34 classmates, who also bequeathed &ldquo;Peter Chittick&rsquo;s angelic face&rdquo; to a lucky upcoming senior in the yearbook.</p>
<p>
In 1950 Pete employed that &ldquo;angelic face&rdquo; to &ldquo;exaggerate his age&rdquo; in order to enlist in the Air Force, serving at Sampson Air Base, Seneca Lake, NY. He was encouraged by one of his superiors to take the Air Force competitive exam for West Point. He &ldquo;miraculously passed&rdquo; and was granted an invitation to attend the elite prep school at Stewart Air Force Base, NY, where his yearbook class quote was, &ldquo;Dust? Impossible!&rdquo; He was accepted into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Class of 1957, and joined the Long Gray Line.</p>
<p>
As a cadet, &ldquo;Hook&rdquo; kept the dorm windows open even on winter nights, much to the discomfort of his roommates, who sustained their outrage even 50 years later. He was also featured kneeling on a hoisted dining hall table in an academy photo spread in the December 7, 1953 issue of <em>Life</em> magazine. Once, when tossing the &ldquo;pigskin&rdquo; on the West Point green with fellow classmates, he was waved down by a visiting Marlon Brando, who beckoned for the ball. Pete reported impishly that Brando&rsquo;s return spiral left room for improvement.</p>
<p>
He received his Bachelor of Science in Military Engineering and his commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Upon graduation, he attended U.S. Army Jump School at Fort Benning, GA, followed by what he would remember as some of the toughest and happiest days of his career, attending Ranger School at Fort Gordon, GA.</p>
<p>
In 1963, Pete returned from his first tour of Vietnam, and his high school best friend&rsquo;s mother introduced him to a young nursing student whose family was renting the top floor of her split-level house. Within a year of meeting her, he married Geraldine Francis Hunt.</p>
<p>
With a baby on the way, the couple was stationed in Little Creek, VA. The next year, they moved to Guatemala and then to Panama, where, outside of work, Pete was able to indulge his love of history and artifact-hunting. In 1970, he was flown to Peru to oversee disaster relief in the aftermath of an earthquake and was subsequently awarded the distinguished Peruvian Cross. Pete was called for a second tour in Vietnam in 1969, and then a second tour of duty in Panama. In 1972, the family returned to United States, with tours of duty at Fort Monmouth, NJ and the Radford Army Ammunition Plant, VA. He was honorably discharged as a lieutenant colonel in 1980 after 23 years of service to the United States and moved the family to Blacksburg, VA.</p>
<p>
In 1982, Pete and his family settled in beautiful Middleburg, VA, from which he commuted to work at EDS, SAIC and finally BDM. He also made deliveries for the new family business, Middleburg Floral Gallery, and maintained the family farm. Pete was a Mason, a member of the Lion&rsquo;s Club (for which he ran the James Bland Music Competition for 25 years), the American Legion, a dedicated donor to the Ronald McDonald House, and he made weekly food deliveries for Seven Loaves Food Bank. Some of his precious off time was spent hunting musket balls and other treasures in the Virginia fields with his metal detector. He enjoyed hosting his West Point class reunions at the farm in Middleburg, where he would remain for 33 years until finally moving to Fredericksburg, VA in 2015.</p>
<p>
He is survived by his wife of 51 years, the former Geraldine Hunt of Poughkeepsie, NY; their four children&mdash;Commander Shaun Allan Chittick, USN of Chesapeake, VA; Loreen Chittick Hitch of Glen Allen, VA; Jeri Lee Thomas of Reston, VA; and Linda Jean Beck of South Orange, NJ&mdash;seven grandchildren, and by Pete&rsquo;s two brothers, Richard T. &ldquo;Ted&rdquo; and David Allen Chittick. Pete was so proud to have been a member of &ldquo;Black 57,&rdquo; and he will be remembered by all who knew him for his unending quest for knowledge (especially through books), his love of the outdoors and adventure, his service to his country and his community, and, of course, his boyish smile.</p>
<p>
Pete served in the following units: 41st Signal Battalion, 1958-59; 4th Signal Group, Germany, 1959-61; Signal Army Transportation Corps, 1961-62, 39th Signal Battalion, RVN 1962-63, Amphibious Group 4, 1963-65; Strategic Command Facility, Guatemala, 1965-67; STRATCOM signal officer, 1967-68; XO, 54th Signal Battalion, RVN, 1968-69: XO, HQ RDAISA, 1969-72; division chief, Signal School, 1973; XO, HQ RDAISA, 1974-78.</p>
<p>
Peter earned the following decorations: Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf cluster, Army Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal with bronze star device, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with four bronze star devices, Peruvian Cross, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross Medal with palm cross, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, Army Meritorious Unit Citation ribbon with oak leaf cluster.</p>
