George Douglas Fitchett, age 68, of Belhaven, passed away on Thursday August 26, 2021 at the Ridgewood Rehabilitation & Living Center in Washington after a long illness.
George was born on January 30, 1953 to George and Marilyn (Reuss) Fitchett in Fairfax, VA.
He will be remembered as a simple man. His passion for the open road led to him being a truck driver by trade. That love spilled over to his Harley Davidson motorcycle which he could be found riding at Daytona Bike week as often as possible. George’s love for his bikes couldn’t compare the amount of love that he had for his children, who will all miss him greatly.
George is survived by his wife: Melinda Fitchett, son: William Fitchett, two daughters: Janis and Shelby Fitchett, four brothers and two sisters.
Along with one of his brothers, George is also preceded in death by his father.
