William T. DeWitt ‘Bill’, 79, passed away November 26, 2012 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was born May 5, 1933 in Calhan, Colorado to the late Ray and Floy DeWitt.

Bill proudly served in the United States Air Force for over 22 years. Following his military career, he founded DeWitt Transportation and continued to work there up to his passing. He was a very intelligent person who embraced life with a strong work ethic. Bill was outgoing with an adventuresome spirit, he traveled the world and drove all over the United States but he always treasured coming back home to Colorado. Having a passion for horses, Bill loved to spend time with his quarter horses out on his ranch in Calhan. His mother often said that from the time he was a small child, ‘Bill never met a stranger’ and was a friend to everyone he met. He was also a loving husband and father.
