Upon his honorable discharge, Ted would return home and marry a childhood friend, Monah West. The two married August 22, 1969, and made their home in Tulsa. Ted sought employment with North American Rockwell, where he was involved in the Apollo 11 moon shot activity. He later began a career as an x-ray service engineer and eventually owned his own business, Pittman Radiographic Service, for more than ten years.
The Pittman family eventually made Bixby their home in 1985.
