      Obituary - Barbados Advocate, Sunday, 6 Sept 1987 Edgar Clement Gittens
      The death occurred in Victoria, British Columbia on August 13 of Mr. Edgar Clement Gittens, better known to his family and friends in Barbados as "Bruds". In Canada everyone called him "Ed". The funeral service took place on August 15, in the Chapel of First Memorial Services, Interment Qualicum Beach Cemetery. He was buried next to his wife Audrey, who predeceased him in 1980. Mr. Gittens is survived by his sister Hilda MacIntosh who lives in Penticton, British Columbia, and two sons who are married and also live in British Columbia: Clifford and wife Donna of Langley, and Leslie and wife Cheryl of Powell River. There are five grandchildren; Sara, Michael, Jennifer, Christina and Stephen. Mr. Gittens, who was 69, was born in Barbados. He was the younger son of the late Teddy and Annie Gittens. Annie Gittens was the sister of the late Percy Foster of Barbados and Walter Edgar "Mike" Foster of Guyana. Mr. Gittens was educated at Harrison College and on leaving school joined Charles Charles McEnearney and Co as a car salesman. He then worked for Barclays Bank in Barbados and St Lucia. He also spent a short time with Pan American in Trinidad. He and his brother Ivan (also deceased) left Barbados in the early 40's for Canada, travelling in one of the Lady Boats. As this was during the Second World War, they both decided to join the services. His brother saw active service in Italy and he joined the Canadian Army, but did not go overseas. After the war Mr. Gittens returned to Montreal where he was married. He joined Simpson's Department Store on Sherbrooke Street. He lived in Montreal for many years before moving over to western Canada where he joined Simpson's in Vancouver. Mr. Gittens never lost his love for his country of birth and he returned to Barbados on many occasions over the years to spend vacations. May he rest in peace.
