He was a graduate of the Downtown Detective and Security Guard Academy in Cleveland and was a private detective for the William J. Burns Detective Agency, also in Cleveland, prior to his employment with City National Bank.

Mr. Kittle was a train enthusiast, loved music, including country and religious, and had a passion for old comedy shows and reading. He was a humorous, giving and kind man.

Mr. Kittle was a member of the Otterbein United Methodist Church and was a Methodist by faith.
