Kirk Douglas Witham, 63, died after an extended illness on Jan. 19, 2018, at Providence Alaska Medical Center.
Kirk was born on Nov. 15, 1954, in Great Falls, Mont., to Robert and Edith Witham (Lowery), the third of seven children. In 1970, the family moved to Fairbanks, Alaska, where he graduated from Lathrop High School in 1973. Soon after, he began his career in parts sales at Tip Top Chevrolet in Fairbanks. In 1976, he married Renee Kvasager and had a son, Michael. The family moved to Anchorage, Alaska, in 1978, where he remained for the rest of his life. Over the years he worked for Alaska Towing & Wrecking, Evans Engine and Equipment, Emerson GM Diesel, Alaska Detroit Diesel and Kenworth Alaska.
He was preceded in death by brothers, Lynn Tom Witham and Don Witham; and his father, Bob Witham.
Kirk's interests were history, especially Civil War and World War I and II. He was a member of the Thespians Guild at Lathrop. He enjoyed playing the blues on his guitars, gold panning, collecting fossils and drawing.
He is survived by his mother, Edie Fitch; son, Michael Witham; and granddaughter, Sydni Witham; along with siblings, Bobbi Hoffer, Cathy Jacques, Mark Witham and Paul Witham; along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank his aunt, Dee Hurley, and the doctors and nursing staff at Providence.
