Victor J. Litton, 96, of Lock Springs, Missouri, passed away peacefully at his home Friday, February 4, 2022, under the care of his family.
Vic was born May 14, 1925, in Livingston County, Missouri, to parents John Raymond and Charlotte Ethel “Lottie” (Mast) Litton. He was a 1943 graduate of Lock Springs High School and earned the honor of Valedictorian. He served in the Merchant Marines during World War II. Victor married Mildred R. Jones, (and called her Rosie from then on) on September 2, 1951 in Gallatin, Missouri, at Presbyterian preacher, Brother Smith’s, house. Their marriage stood the test of time lasting for over 70 years.
Victor worked his farm until the age of 89 and only stopped then because he could no longer climb up into his tractor. He was a member of Lock Springs Presbyterian Church, then Gallatin Presbyterian Church after the Lock Springs church closed. Vic served as a board member of Home Exchange Bank, Jamesport, Missouri, for 35 years.
Vic is survived by his wife, Mildred “Rosie” Litton of Lock Springs, Missouri; daughter, Vicky Myers and husband Steve of Raleigh, North Carolina; daughter-in-law, Linda Litton of Columbia, Missouri; grandchildren, Ladd Litton of Lee’s Summit, Missouri; Lane Litton and wife Sarah of Columbia, Missouri; Eric Myers and wife Nessa of Lindon, Utah; Kevin Myers and wife Jillian of Holly Springs, North Carolina; great-grandchildren: Olivia, Finley, and Lincoln Litton; Ashley and Elizabeth Litton; Isaac, Farrah, and Fiona Myers; and Zelda and Leia Myers.
