The Guest Book is expired.

Mr. George Wallace Witt, 96, of Somerset, formerly of Casey County, passed from this life on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017, at Hospice of Lake Cumberland, Jean Waddle Care Center, after an extended illness.

He was born in the Allen's Creek community of Casey County on April 9, 1921, the son of the late Luther Witt and Maud Eller Allen Witt. George was a retired employee of General Electric Manufacturing in Louisville and a retired farmer. He enjoyed fishing, traveling, spending time with his family and friends as well as attending church and reading the Bible. He was of the Baptist Faith and a member of the East Somerset Baptist Church.

George was a loving, kind and gentle man who enjoyed life. He was proud of his service to his country in the U.S. Army and his participation in the inauguration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and a veteran during World War II. He certainly will be missed by those who knew and loved him.

Besides his parents, George was preceded in death by his first wife, Irene Thompson Witt, the mother of his children; and a previous wife, Ione Witt; a granddaughter, Kimberly Dawn Brown; and great-grandson, Ryan Clay Brown; three brothers; Paul Witt, Howard Witt and Luther Witt Jr.; three sisters, Roberta Atwell, Edith Taylor and Opal Helm; and three siblings that passed in infancy.

He leaves to cherish his memory a son, Larry (Connie) Witt of Somerset; two daughters, Donna Price and Waunda Witt, both of Liberty; 11 grandchildren, Dennis Wayne Wesley Jr., Anthony Ray Wesley, Steven Boyd Brown, Brian Keith Brown, David Stuart Brown, Michael Scott Brown, Larry Ray Witt II, Charalisa Dawn Witt, Amberly Witt, Morgan Matison Witt and Braxton Graham Witt; 13 great-grandchildren; great-great-grandchild; and a host of other relatives and friends.

The funeral is at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, in the chapel of Southern Oaks Funeral Home in Somerset with Pastors Darvin Fenison, Gary Phelps and George Pierce officiating. Interment follows in Green River Valley Separate Baptist Church Cemetery in Liberty.

Visitation is from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, in the Chapel of Southern Oaks Funeral Home and continues from noon to 2 p.m. at New Testament Baptist Church, 707 Houstonville, St., Liberty.
