Condolence & Memory Journal

I was heartbroken to hear of Mr. Witt's passing. He was my mentor science teacher at Luther South. He was always smiling, always ready with a bad joke, and I will always be thankful for his guidance and friendship. He will live on through the lives of colleagues and students he has taught.

To the family of Don Witt... Words can hardly express what an amazing teacher he was... HE made science and learning fun! It was joy to be in his classes. He was also our Tennis coach, and was patient and very caring. He was one of the main teachers I enjoyed coming back to visit at the school. My condolences to the Witt family...
