This is just unbelievably shocking and sad news; am just learning of it now. I always enjoyed interactions with Dewitt and know he was very excited about the opportunity at Montana.
Rest in peace, Dewitt,

As someone pointed out, it's so hard to write when one can be at such a loss of words, but I will try.
First, on behalf of Internet2, we'd like to express our most sincere condolences to the Latimer family, friends and Dewitt's colleagues. Dewitt will be sorely missed by our community, and we are thankful for the time we had with him. At our recent annual meeting, it was great to see Dewitt who was a vibrant voice to the larger set of important conversations with the Internet2 community, including those with the CIOs. We all grieve for his untimely departure and will miss his contributions to innovative thinking for the higher ed community. We will fondly remember, as so many of you have expressed, the many good times where Dewitt enriched our lives.
On a personal note, I will miss a dear friend. From our chats about family and his always checking on mine to having a great supporter who lent constructive input into my career with wisdom and encouragement. It does not surprise me when I see how many of you Dewitt touched through out the years. The memories (our memories) echo in some way the contributions Dewitt made as a wonderful spirit, good friend and colleague to our lives.
