The man killed in a crash on West Saanich Road last week has been identified by friends and family.
In online fundraisers, Chris ‘Willy’ McNutt is remembered as an avid car lover and a “master at tinkering on anything he could get his hands on.”
McNutt, 31, was also remembered as generous, kind-hearted and always willing to help a friend.
A GoFundMe campaign, organized by Jody Bedwell, has been set up to help McNutt’s family and his partner, Kristy.
“Kristy is my sister and she’s the most beautiful person with such a big heart and wouldn’t ask for anything,” reads the fundraiser. “She has been there for all her friends and family when we need her and I just want her not to have to worry about anything during this tough time.”
Emergency crews responded to a two-vehicle crash on West Saanich Road, near Prospect Lake Road, at approximately 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 4. The driver of a black Honda CRX was pronounced dead at the scene and the other driver was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
