Danny Wittie

Roy Dan (Danny) Wittie, 66, of Gatesville, passed away April 15, 2020, at his residence surrounded by his family.

Private family graveside services will be held at Restland Cemetery.

Danny was born Dec. 17, 1953, in Gatesville to Roy Floyd Wittie and Dorothy Faye Rose Wittie. He attended school in Gatesville. He married Carolyn Lanell Timmons Sept. 12, 1975, in Gatesville.

He was a veteran, serving 30 years in the Texas Army National Guard. Danny was a tank Mechanic at M.A.T.E.S. for 27 years.

After retirement he spent the next 11 years, until diagnosis of Glio Blastoma, with Honeywell International and Kellogg Brown and Root, traveling the United States and Germany to army bases performing special installations training and inspections of army vehicles before issuance to the military.

Danny’s hobbies were his family and home. He loved grooming the yard, tending the garden and outdoor grilling. He spent most of his time outside.

Danny could do almost anything with his own two hands. Never had to call for repairs, he did it himself. He was so talented. Danny built the 1300-square-foot addition onto their home with the help of friend Ray Ashby.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother-in-law, Jackie Jones.

Danny is survived by his wife of 44 years, Carolyn Wittie; son Ray Don Wittie; daughter Dana Lanell Wittie; sisters, Rita Wood and husband Jimmy, Tana Jones and Pamela Shoemaker and husband Billy Gayle; and five grandchildren, Kirsten Wittie, Ryan Wittie, Ryder Wittie, Nathan Kizer and Noah Kizer.

The family requests memorials to Mountain Baptist Church, 6319 E. Hwy 84, Gatesville, TX 76528.
