I take great pride and personally owe a great debt of gratitude, to being part of this family. What Norman {and Leo} started so many years ago has impacted my daily life in a tremendous way. Being married to the 3rd generation of Witte Bros., it is not only a job, but a way of life in our household. Quite the legacy to leave behind. Thank you Norman, for all you have created! With much love, Ryan, Katie, Paige, Alex & Andrew Witte {the next set of bros?}

My Deepest Condolences to the entire Witte Family. I feel blessed to have had Norman as my father-in-law. He was a straight shooter and shared what he had on his mind. Through the years he gave me advice that I held closely, he was my second father. I enjoyed our many lunches after church with him and Rose, alot was shared. I will miss you, but know you are in a much better place, sharing some time with Lois. You are finally at peace! You will always be an inspiration to me....your work ethic, sense of humor, big heart, generousity, and above all your love for your family! God Bless you and we will see you on the other side! Love, Rick, Mary & Family

I remember Norm living so near them in Warsaw and going to church often together in Morristown Baptist. He was a very kind gentleman with a love for laughter. I will always remember living very near he and Lois and babysitting often. Blessings & prayers for the family
