Eric P. Gittins November 16, 1960 - December 27, 2004 Birthplace: San Diego, CA Resident: Lawndale, CA Visitation: Thurs., Dec 30th at Rice Mortuary 7:45 PM Service: Fri, Dec. 31st at St. Catherine Laboure 9:00 AM After a courageous 3 year battle with cancer, our loving brother, Eric P. Gittins passed away on December 27th 2004. He will always be remembered for his inner strength, great kindness and tremendous generosity for those he loved. He never forgot to celebrate important events in his family's lives and we will miss his spontaneous sense of humor that would appear just at the right moment to cheer those around him. He resided in the City of Lawndale where he graduated from Leuzinger High School in 1978 and briefly attended classes at El Camino College. He was part of St. Catherine Laboure Parish and participated in the boy scouts where he worked hard to receive the Ad Altare Dei Award. He worked as a shoe salesman for Montgomery Wards; and later, became a United States Postal Carrier for the City of Lawndale and remained in their employ for 17 years continuing to work as long as he could. He loved to vacation in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah where he enjoyed nature walks and the great outdoors. Eric was an excellent photographer, an avid Raider Football fan, and loved to dabble in meteorology. He was the Family Historian who was blessed with a wonderful memory for dates and events. Although Eric's life with us was cut short, his memory will always remain in our hearts. Eric is survived by his sister, Colleen N. Gittins of La Mesa, CA; and his two brothers, James C. Gittins of Lawndale and Michael M. Gittins of Torrance, CA. Visitation will be held on Thursday, December 30th 7:45 PM at Rice Mortuary, 5310 Torrance Blvd, Torrance CA. Services will be held Friday, December 31st 9:00 AM at St. Catherine Laboure Parish in Torrance, CA.
