Douglas Jeffrey Wittwer

Douglas Jeffrey Wittwer, 66, of Salem, Nebraska passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, at his home. 

Doug was born on April 17, 1956, to Roy and Edna (Stastny) Wittwer.  He grew up in the Salem and Dawson, Nebraska areas and attended Honey Creek School through the 8th grade.  Then, he attended Dawson High School and graduated in 1974. 

On June 18, 1977, Doug married Tamra (Grimm) Wittwer in Sabetha, Kansas and last year they celebrated 45 wonderful years together.  Doug and Tamra were blessed with two sons, Sandon and Grayson.

Doug owned and operated his own welding and repair business in rural Dawson.  He took great pride in his welding abilities and made many friends through his business.  Throughout his lifetime, Doug worked other jobs which usually involved farming and trucking.  Doug worked his entire life in and around the Salem and Sabetha areas until his retirement in 2021.   

In his spare time, Doug enjoyed spending time with his family and his horses.  He loved roping and attending rodeos especially if he could talk his grandsons into attending the rodeos with him.  Doug’s greatest joy was spending time with his grandsons and attending all their school activities and sporting events. 

Doug was preceded in death by his grandsons, Sladyn and Landry Wittwer; and his father-in-law, Fred Feek on January 21, 2022. 

Doug is survived by his wife, Tamra, of the home; his two sons, Sandon (Lindsay) Wittwer of Sabetha, Kansas and Grayson Wittwer of Shawnee, Oklahoma; his four grandsons, Tristan, Aidan, Camden, and Karson Wittwer; his parents, Roy and Edna Wittwer of Sabetha, Kansas; his brother, Dan (Janet) Wittwer of Dawson, Nebraska; his sister, Brenda (Gary) Huettner of Dawson, Nebraska; his mother-in-law, Karen Feek of Sabetha; his four sisters-in-law and their husbands, Terri (Richard) Terrel, Lynda (Randy) Hoffman, Rayona “Ruth” (Paul) Shaver, and Audra (Lee) Livengood all of Sabetha; and his numerous nieces and nephews.
