Our dear friend and collegue, Doug Witmer, passed away on June 16, 2012. Help honor his memory by supporting the Witmer Children's Fund.
Doug Witmer was a 42-year-old man who never missed an opportunity to enjoy life, whether it was camping out with his daughter's Indian Princess Troup, taking his son for a long bike ride, sitting on his porch in Chicago with family and many friends, taking in a concert, hockey game or crossword puzzle, or travelling across Canada on behalf of Clif Bar & Company, Doug did it with a particularly inimitable zest.
Doug was taken far too soon from this world when, just minutes into a long-anticipated triathlon on June 16, 2012, he suffered massive heart failure.
His friends and family want to ensure that his 9-year-old son, Henry, and 13-year-old daughter, Leah, not only remember how loved and loving their father was, but that their education is taken care of -- this was of critical importance to Doug and his wife Kathy.
