In loving memory of Peter Witts who sadly passed away on 15th May 2021 at John Eastwood Hospice.

Peter was born on 27th April 1949 in Kimberly to Albert and Elsie Witts. He attended Factory Lane school, Church Hill School and Kimberly Secondary Modern before completing an apprenticeship with the National Coal Board, qualifying as a fitter. He would continue with this career, firstly with the coal board and later with Fusion Provida, until his retirement. Peter acted as a mentor for many young apprentices throughout his professional life.

On 26th April 1969, Peter married his beloved wife and lifelong partner Betty. They had two children, Alison and Andrew. They also have two grandchildren, Lily and Alden.

Adventurous in nature, he lived life to its fullest and enjoyed many varied pastimes. An avid dinghy sailor, he also enjoyed windsurfing and flying power kites. His interest in motor cycles at a young age revisited him in his later years where he rode and competed in Trials events into his 60’s. Peter developed a love of golf and could often be found on the course with Betty and their friends.

Peter is fondly remembered by all those who knew him as a kind and compassionate friend, always willing to provide help and advice to any who needed it. He possessed a keen sense of humour, always quick with a quip and was an accomplished practical joker.

Peter will be buried in St Michaels and All Angels church in his home village of South Normanton on the 8th June 2021. In lieu of cards and flowers the family kindly request that a donation to the John Eastwood Hospice is made in Peter’s name. This is in thanks for the wonderful care he received there towards the end.

A devout husband, loving father, devoted grandfather and loyal friend, Peter will be eternally missed and fondly remembered by all those who knew him.
