Gordon C. Wittman
Gordon Conrad Wittman, 81, of Ypsilanti, Mich., went to be with The Lord on July 24, 2013, from complications following hip replacement surgery in February 2013.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Gordon Chalmers Wittman and Mary (Gordon) Wittman of Petersburg. Gordon retired from Tecumseh Products in Tecumseh, with over 35 years of service. He leaves behind his brother and sister-in-law Jack and Joyce (Heiden) Wittman of Orlando Fla., two sons and daughters-in-law Greg and Bonnie of Ypsilanti, Rock and Melissa of Jacksonville, N.C. and grandchildren, Gregory Jr. and Thomas (Greg and Bonnie), and Angel, Shana, Tyler, Kelsey, and Haley (Rock and Melissa), and several great-grandchildren. A niece, Jill (Wittman) Faul and two nephews, Jeffery Wittman and Dean Wittman, and several cousins.
Gordon enjoyed retirement spending time with his grandchildren, Sunday church services at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Ann Arbor as well as bowling and square dancing with friends and family. He will be forever remembered for his incredible inner strength, unmatchable patience and overwhelming kindness towards others, but mostly for his unique “one-of-a-kind” personality that only he had.
A private memorial service will be held by his two sons at Pleasant View Cemetery in Petersburg in the near future where his ashes will be placed; to be with his mom and dad. We love you and miss you Dad, more than you will ever know.
