He was born on May 1, 1923 to Raymond and Della (Claudy) Witkus and was raised in Jim Falls, WI.  On February 18, 1943 he married Bertha Melville.  They lived most of their married life in Chippewa Falls.  He retired from the Soo Line Railroad.  He enjoyed music and spending time with family and friends.

He is survived by 2 daughters, Jean Nelson (Chippewa Falls), Betty Kasat (Mosinee); 8 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; sister, Bernice Schwetz; brother, Albert Witkus; and many nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved very much.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Bertha; son, Robert; grandson; 3 sisters; and 3 brothers.

The family would like to thank the staff of Our House Assisted Living for providing a place for him to live and call home the last few years and Interim Hospice for making his final days comfortable.

He was looking forward to his birthday, so a Celebration of His Life is being held at the Fill Inn Station in Chippewa Falls, from 1-4 pm on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
