WITUIK, Colin Edward – With profound sorrow, we gather as a family, and community, to grieve the loss of our talented son Colin. In his 21 years, Colin impacted so many people within our own community, and in Toronto where he most recently lived. Colin faced difficult internal challenges as he struggled with depression and in recent months his family and friends walked this journey alongside him, supporting him in every way we could. In the end, depression took our son from us, on Sunday, June 8, 2014. Please find comfort in knowing that all that love could possibly do, was done. Colin possessed such intelligent wit and creative energy in equal measure and in the words of so many friends, he lived in a genuine “true-to-himself” manner, with a unique perspective and “no bullshit” attitude, which many around him admired and respected. Colin will be endlessly loved and held firmly in the hearts of many, most deeply by his parents Cheryl (Hunter) and Rick Wituik, and his brothers Chris and Tanner. He will be forever cherished by his grandparents, Linda and Walt Murray, Ted and Sheila Hunter, and Bill and Trish Wituik, and by his aunts, uncles and extended families. Colin will be remembered by many friends—including a very special friend, Lindsay MacLean—with whom he shared moments of great happiness. Colin is predeceased by his uncle, Mike Hunter (2010).Please join us as we celebrate Colin’s life. Visitation will be held on Sunday, June 15th, from 2:00 – 4:00 and 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, where a Celebration of Colin’s Life will be held on Monday, June 16th at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to CMHA Middlesex or St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation (Parkwood Hospital Fund) in honour of Colin, would be greatly appreciated.
