KIMMITT, Pat Right or wrong, I’m still “The Captain!”
Pat passed away suddenly while hiking on Knox Mountain, the morning of August 15, 2009 at the age of 53. He is survived by Michelle, the mother of his daughters: Jen (Terry Jefferies), Coco, Shannon (Dylan Christensen), Jaime; and Sam Davies whom he loved as a son; his parents Pat and Bea; brother Barry (Vivian); sisters: Dianne Van Hesteren (Frank), Penny Giovanetto (Barry) Linda Simon (Herbert), Marianne Kimmitt (Bill Rowe), Suzanne Kimmitt; nephews and nieces: Sherry and Patrick Van Hesteren;
Casey, Chris, Aaron and Keena Giovanetto; Krista and Jackie Simon; Rosemary and James Rowe; Melissa and Austin Kimmitt; other special people in Pat’s life include Danny, Corinne, Matthew and Nana Dier. He also loved his three grand-dogs Harley, Heidi and Pancake. Pat was born on March 24, 1956 in Montreal, Quebec. He graduated from the University of Alberta and became a member of the BC Bar Association in 1982. He founded Kimmitt &
Company, operating his law practice with honesty and
integrity for the past 24 years loving his staff as family. Pat was a devoted son, father and mentor who was loved by many and respected by all who knew him. Pat took delight in the eloquent use of the English language. A kind a gentle soul, his generosity was legendary. Pat loved sailing and music, but most of all he loved his four beautiful daughters. Gratefully, he was able to walk daughter Shannon down the aisle just hours before his passing.
