Craig L. DeWitt

Craig L. DeWitt, 54, of Elroy, WI, passed away Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Craig was born April 14, 1967, to Michael Lee and Ilene (Martin) DeWitt, in Janesville, WI.

Craig was born with creativity running through his blood and this artistic second nature directed him to a full, adventurous life. Playing his guitar was where most of his creative juices were directed. Craig was inspired by rock and roll music and was a self-taught musician. He was involved with playing with many different bands throughout Wisconsin and Tennessee. He was talented enough to cross paths and work with many of his rock-n-roll music heroes.

Craig was a social butterfly, going wherever his long hair and music would take him. He loved football and watching the games. He had a magnetic personality that made people gravitate to him which is why he leaves behind friends all over the world. He was also very excited to become a grandfather.

Craig is survived by his mom Ilene Knight; dad Michael Lee DeWitt; children Branson DeWitt, Julian DeWitt, and Kiana Lamar; grandchildren Tristen and Desmond; sister Michelle (Bob Walters) DeWitt and brother Michael John (Amy) DeWitt; nieces and nephews Adam, Zoey, Elias, Mindy and Tana; wife Dawn; along with many other relatives and too many friends to name.

Craig is preceded in death by his brother Todd, in 2019; and nephew Adam James DeWitt in 2002.

Craig did not want a funeral. Instead, he wants those who knew and loved him to pick out some great music, turn it up - play it loud and think of good memories of Craig. He loved is family and life ~ and went out like the rockstar that he was.

The Torkelson Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements and online condolences may be offered at
