Greg Nesbitt Death – Greg Nesbitt has sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was confirmed dead on earlier this week. He died leaving his family, friends and loved ones who will dearly miss him heartbroken and devastated. Greg was a prominent fixture in Lindsay’s downtown retail environment as owner of Nisbett’s Clothiers.
The daughter of Nisbett, Amy Nisbett, worked hand in hand with her father at the family business, primarily on the formalwear side. Amy said will dearly miss her dad for “always being here for me, no matter what, and he never sugar coated anything.” It’s impossible to replace such counsel and daily direction, Amy claims. He had “a love and commitment for his community and the people in it.”
More Information about Greg Nesbitt
He discussed a training ride he previously underwent in Kawartha Lakes with columnist Jamie Morris in a previous interview with the Advocate. On his carbon-fiber bicycle, he was well into a 150-kilometer ride when he was trapped in a flash flood. He was battered by strong gusts and saturated by cold rain. He arrived at the bend leading home while drenched and shivering. He then encountered consistent headwinds for the last 20 kilometers after climbing a hill at Omemee. He was unyielding.
Later, during his first Ironman triathlon at Lake Placid in 2006, he was sustained by thoughts of that triumph over hardship and some healing chicken broth at an aid station. He finished the four-kilometer swim and the 180-kilometer bike ride before getting disoriented early in the last leg, a marathon-length run, and having to slow to a walk. In another race, he crashed his bike and suffered a fractured rib in addition to road rash.
What happened to Greg Nesbitt?
According to reports, Greg Nesbitt suffered from a tragic illness that was identified as cancer. Nisbett finished the Escape from Alcatraz in San Francisco and nine Ironman races in all. Only once did he fail to complete. Amy claims that if people didn’t know her father from the men’s clothes business, they would have recognized him from the Kids of Steel triathlons in Lindsay, where he volunteered as the event director for many years.
