Wittenberg BramWITTENBERG, Bram Lee - At the young age of 54, Bram passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on March 3, 2017.

Bram, the son of the late Debbie and Raphael Wittenberg of Pickering, was born on January 19, 1963 in Port Arthur.

Bram is survived and loved by his beautiful wife Amy and their dog Bonnie. Bram’s family included his mother-in-law Jane McDowell, sister-in-law Kate McDowell and his most dear friends Dave Savor, Rob Braid and Dave Waldriff.

Bram was a committed and current long-standing employee with the City of Pickering at the Recreation Complex.

At the Recreation Complex, many people learned that Bram could be trusted and relied on with any task as he was usually the first one there to help. Bram affected many lives at work but two specifically when he saved their lives using a defibrillator and acted in a key role to their successful resuscitation.

 

Bram was a compassionate soul who always had time for anyone who needed help. Quick to lend a hand, Bram enjoyed helping others and knowing that he did all he could do.

In his spare time Bram was an avid reader, a sports junkie and a gardener. He loved the outdoors when it was sunny and warm but not too hot or rainy.

Bram especially enjoyed playing baseball, curling, squash, hockey and track. He was an exceptionally talented athlete with a 100M personal best of 10.6 seconds. Additionally his OFSSA long jump record stood unbroken for approximately 20 years. Bram also won several Slo-Pitch National championships with his teams.

Some of Bram’s favourite times were spent with his friends' families and especially their children. Whether it was carving pumpkins, watching the kids playing on their sports teams or just losing to the kids on the PlayStation, Bram was at his best.

Spiller of much and speller of little, oh so handsome and woe not so handy, bestower of nicknames and remover of bad stains, he will be missed by all.

Known to most as Bram but to others, he was: Clem, Clementine, Brambo, Brampa, B-Dawg. No matter by which name you called Bram, he was known best as Friend.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Canadian Liver Foundation or Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Please consider consenting to organ donation and lastly, choose an activity that Bram enjoyed, such as a Blue Jays game, an Oshawa Generals game, playing slots at the casino or eating at one of his favourite restaurants. Also, smile and remember Bram and the best time you had with him. Any time you see Snoopy, think of Bram.

Celebration of Life will be held on March 19th from 1:30-3:30pm at Oshawa Golf and Curling Club.
