56 year old, Vincent D. ‘Grit’ Witkowski of Valparaiso, went home to be with the Lord on December 1, 2016.
On February 22, 1960, Vince was born in Valparaiso, Indiana to David and Ella ‘Neva’ (Arnold) Witkowski. Vince was a longtime member of the Invaders and loved working on and riding his motorcycles that he had owned over the years. His hobbies were fishing on the Kankakee River, riding his Harley, and spending time with his family and his biker ‘Brothers’. He had a giving, caring heart and did so often. He came to know God and liked to debate what that was to him with his brother Mike. He was the ‘character’ brother in that you never knew exactly what he was up to until he told his stories of what he did. He will be missed and remembered for a long time. Take care brother and rest in peace.
Vince is survived by one son: Greg Proctor, 5 brothers: Mike (Jane) Witkowski, Matt Witkowski, Tim (Lisa) Witkowski, Adam (Leann) Witkowski, Jeff Witkowski, mother: Neva Witkowski, 2 grandchildren, 7 nephews, 3 nieces, and one godson.
Vince was preceded in death by his father: David Witkowski and his grandparents.
