Sterling DeWitt

July 12, 1956 — February 28, 2022

Sterling Waldo DeWitt of Pima passed into eternity on February 28, 2022, in Tucson, Arizona at the age of 65. Sterling was born on Friday, July 13, 1956, in Mesa, Arizona to parents L. Waldo DeWitt & Nancy Mildred Beals DeWitt with siblings Laron, Dillis, Darlene, Mitchell, and Danny. Sterling graduated from Westwood High School in 1974 and began working in the construction industry. On September 20, 1975, he married his one true love, Carol Burnham in Gilbert, Arizona, and to that union came six children; Heidi, Heather, Holly, Hilary, Hunter, and Hanna. He spent his life working hard to support his family and showing them how much he loved them. His love of family was well known to all those close to him. He loved marrying his high school sweetheart, having six children, attending and participating in rodeo's in his early years, road trips with his wife, being a grandfather, country music, western movies, gambling, evading Game & Fish with an estimated record of 713-1, hunting with friends & family, and first-time hunters. Sterling was known to be the life of the party, an attention seeker, family man, a smooth talker, and everyone's friend. He left impressions with everyone he met, and will never be forgotten. Some of his favorite quotes were "If wishes were fishes and horse turds were biscuits, we'd all eat till we die", "I've never been lost, but I might have been confused a time or two", "Cowboy up, pull yourself up by your bootstraps", and "love you long time". He was preceded in death by his parents L. Waldo & Nancy DeWitt, and his siblings Dillis, Darlene, Mitchell, and Danny DeWitt. Sterling is survived by his loving wife of 47 years Carol DeWitt, his children Heidi (Marc) Denney, Heather (Jim) Filaroski, Holly (Eric) Miller, Hilary (Doug) Grant, Hunter (Jessica) DeWitt, and Hanna (Mike) McCabe, his brother Laron DeWitt, 21 Grandchildren, and 3 Great-Grandchildren.
