Brett Randall DeWitt, 23, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 1, 2013, in Salt Lake City, Utah. A graveside service was held April 8 at the Holbrook Cemetery, where he was laid to rest alongside his dear uncle, Kevin DeWitt.
Brett was born on Nov. 13, 1989, in Okmulgee, Okla., to Michael Keith and Charlene Neoma (Justice) DeWitt.

Though he was born in Okmulgee, Brett was reared in Henryetta, Okla. He was a 2008 graduate of Henryetta High School and was one of the valedictorians of his class.
Moving from his native Oklahoma to Utah a few years ago, Brett enjoyed living in the Provo/Orem area.
He was truly an amazing young man who found beauty in the world in which he lived and, in his wisdom, was able to write down those things that were important to him so they could be shared with the world. In his own words: “I love my Family! I love music. I love my beautiful, beautiful friends. I love my sweet Loretta Martin (my bass guitar). I love deep conversation with deep people. I love people. I love creating anything. I love my bumperless ‘98 Accord. I love my mini-fridge. I love my parties and gatherings. I love being alone. I love my Oklahoma roots. I love dogs. I love women. And, I love singing!”
Brett was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and his family finds a great deal of peace and comfort knowing that Families Can Be Together Forever.
Survivors include his parents, Michael Keith and Charlene Neoma (Justice) DeWitt of Henryetta; four sibilings, Tara DeWitt of Salt Lake City, Adam (Jacqueline) DeWitt of Provo, Lindsey (Reece) Rovig of Lehi, Utah, and Logan DeWitt of Henryetta; one nephew, Jaden Rovig, one niece, Brynlee Rovig; his grandparents, Keith and Marian DeWitt of Holbook, and Red Justice of Montana; his aunts and uncles: Darolyn DeWitt of Joseph City, Alan (Lisa) DeWitt of Snowflake, Trenna (Albert) Hunt of Holbrook, Scott (Tracy) DeWitt of Lehi, Bill (April) Justice of Montana, David (Patricia) Justice of Alabama, Mike Justice of Florida, Pat Justice of Montana and Eddie (Nicole) Justice of Wyoming; a sister, Rachel (Alan) Ridenour of Montana; and his great-grandmother, Fay Stratton of Snowflake. He, too, was a favorite to all of his cousins.
He was preceded in death by two uncles, Kevin DeWitt and Tim Justice; his grandparents, Charlene Moore and Ken Jones; and his great-grandparents: Malcolm “Mac” and Martha DeWitt, Ralph Harris and Lynn Stratton.
We love you, Brett, forever and a day…
