WITT, Gregory February 25, 1961 – December 7, 2011 With his family all around him, Greg slipped away peacefully onto his next journey. Greg died from severe complications due to polycystic kidney disease. He was pre-deceased by his father, Ove Witt (also PKD), in 1973. He is survived by his mother Marian Reilly (Joseph Reilly); brother Christopher Witt (Brenda); sister Mereta Witt (Jim Wood); sister Tanya Descoteau; nieces and nephews: Megan, Tracy, Sam, Simon, Helena & Cole. Family in Quesnel, Saskatchewan and Denmark. Also, many cherished friends and long time family friends. And his loyal and loved canine companion, Lucky. Greg was born in Victoria, a Fairfield kid. He grew up there until he moved to Campbell River in 1977. He lived there until the last day, at home – the beach house with the 'view' that was a joy and solace to him. Greg's happiest times were spent on the ocean boating and fishing. He was also very passionate about the aviation industry and had a long career in airport maintenance. Greg was 'gregarious', funny, generous, charming, smart and a 'Greg of all trades'. He was most dearly Loved. A private ceremony was held Feb. 25, 2012, Greg's 51st birthday. The family wishes to thank everyone who attended, sent cards and prayers. We also especially thank Greg's friends, Curtis, Steve and Don who stood by him through the best and worst of times. We are missing Greg every moment of every day but are relieved and grateful that he suffers no more.
