Larry L. Gitt, age 77 of Fremont
Died Wednesday October 10, 2018
Larry Lee Gitt passed away unexpectantly on October 10, 2018. He was born in Fremont on March 4, 1941 to Elmer and Lillian (Rosie) (Adams) Gitt. He attended Fremont Senior High school and graduated in 1960, then enlisted in the United States Air Force where he served until 1968. Following his service, worked at Boeing Aviation until returning to Nebraska. An electrician by trade, he started the local business Gitt Electrical and later Woodcraft Manufacturing until retiring in 2003. It was then he perused his lifelong passion of aviation by flying, building and owning various types of aircraft- both conventional and experimental. His most remarkable feat was landing (or crashing) his Gyrocopter in a field in North Fremont, walking away unscathed.
Larry will be remembered as having a quick wit, a fearless attitude and a zest for life.
