He started in the 358 modified division a few years back and had several very impressive finishes this season, looking for sure like he was going to get his first 358 modified win.

Mr. Pitcher was taking a week off to rebuild his engine “when this tragedy took him from us.” Like his father and grandfather before him, he was a natural mechanic and tinkerer, fixing anything he came across from motorcycles to heavy machinery, first working for the family business, Ryder Trucking, and most recently with Bervy Excavation.

Mr. Pitcher enjoyed sharing his passion of mechanics with Wyatt. They spent many hours building blocks, putting race car tracks together, and playing cars. Wyatt loved spending time at the race car shop with his dad to get ready for Saturday night racing at Lebanon Valley Speedway.
Mr. Pitcher enjoyed cooking, Wednesday night family dinners at the Cornelius’, and watching the New York Giants football on Sundays. He brought so much joy to everyone he was around. He was a ray of sunshine that will shine on forever.
In addition to his parents, Robert and Lynette, he is survived by: his fiancée and lifetime partner, Brittany Elaine Cornelius; his brother, Robert (Britney); sister, Robyn (Jordan); grandparents, Michele and Rudy Perini; many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.
