He was born on May 18, 1952 to Delbert Clyde DeWitt and Marion Louise (Payne) DeWitt in Rochester, IN. Robert graduated from Plymouth High School in 1970.
"Bear" was a very kind and caring person who loved his children and grandchildren. He had a passion for good food, traveling, a desire to be free, and to live life on his own terms. Robert was self-employed as a carpenter and was a perfectionist when it came to carpentry and drywall finishing, his specialty. "Bear" retired in 2008 due to declining health.
Robert is survived by his sisters Diana Shively and Debra (John) Frame of Osceola; brother Richard DeWitt of Mishawaka; children Bobbie Jo, Leeann, Michael, Pamela, and Susan; and many grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents and daughter Mary Ann in 1997.
