WALTER WILLIAM LEROY WITT, age 83, of Trion, Georgia, passed away, with Family by his side, on April 8, 2022. LeRoy proudly served his country in the Army. LeRoy retired from Mount Vernon Mills in September of 2000. He was a proud member of Ridgeway Baptist Church and was a regular attender in his Sunday School class. LeRoy was son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Earl Witt, and was preceded in death by his first wife Marion Jean Witt, sisters, Anne Bell Mann and Clarice Littlejohn; brothers, J. C. Witt and Raymond Witt; grandson, Jonathan Morris.
LeRoy is survived by his wife of 20 years, Lydia Witt; children and step-children, Stacy (Janette) Witt, Sandra (Buddy) Parks, Debbie Brown, Traci (Tommy) Latiolais; twelve grandchildren, Ryan Witt, Scott Witt, Dylan Witt, Jennifer (Kevin) Cheely, Dusty (Kaitlin) Brown, Cody (Raegan) Brown, Victoria (Carter) Harris, and Alexander Morris; four great grandchildren, Landon Witt, Breeland Brown, Briggs Brown, and Keegan Brown; sister-in-law, Deedle Scott. LeRoy also had several Nieces and Nephews, that he loved dearly.
LeRoy loved his family and always considered those around him family as well. He was most proud of his wife and his dog, Mia. LeRoy loved to make people laugh and Share Jesus with those around him. He was most famous for his intentional prayers and the relationship he had with Jesus. LeRoy had a love for cars and even owned 2 Model “A”’s in his lifetime; in spare time, LeRoy was an avid woodworker. LeRoy was the true example of this scripture, “A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches and favor is better than silver or gold”. The contagious smile, His love for Jesus and his love for others will always live in our hearts and never be forgotten. LeRoy would want his legacy to continue on by sharing Christ with those around you.
