Although I am sorry to hear about Uncle Dewitt there is some comfort knowing that the Chessman brothers are together creating mischief in heaven with those southern boy smiles. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time.

I just met Dewitt last year. he really put up a great fight to stay here. ,but finally had to let go. My prayers are with you Delores and family at this time.
This is Dewitt at Disney in December 2018 and just a good picture of Dewitt an Aunt Delores .
I remember Uncle Dee in so many different ways. He was always smiling and/ or laughing. The main thing I remember is him and my father playing cards and carrying on. They are all together again. lots of love.
Uncle DeWitt always made my dad smile. We loved seeing him because he would tell us stories about their mischievous childhood(s).
I will always remember his infectious, warm smile . Rest In Peace and Godspeed Uncle.
