Sad news, just heard Tom Wittke has passed away

Postby John Dubock » Sun Sep 15, 2019 11:00 am

Not sure if I spelled his last name right. Heart attack yesterday. His wife hasn't been healthy, son Sam is 28yrs old. Eat dessert first. I didn't know Tom too well, Troy is renting his basement for the last year, so Tom was a great influence on Troy, the stories Tom can tell were classic.

He will be missed by all who knew him and some who didn't, since he was instrumental
in how much of the terrain was managed at Brighton.

Oh man, sad to hear. I hung out with Tom at the Gorge. A real quality, down to earth guy. An honor to know him.
