Ethan David Witte, 2

Ethan David Witte, age 2, of West Salem, Wis., passed away at his home on Feb. 11.

He was born on Feb. 5, 2012, to David and Jenni (Rotty) Witte in Lacrosse, Wis. Ethan was such a gentle soul. His grin melted our hearts. He looked up to his big sister Anna, his best friend. Ethan loved tractor rides, eating freezies, and playing with all of his cousins. He has a jolly heart that we only hope we can carry on for him. Mommy will miss rocking him to sleep at night. Daddy will miss playing ball with him. Jesus can hold him now.

Ethan was preceded in death by his great grandparents.

He is survived by his parents, David & Jenni (Rotty); big sister, Anna; grandparents, Bob & Kathy Rotty, and Duane & Sharon Witte; godparents, Katherine & Abigail Zuzek; 19 aunts and uncles; 23 first cousins; and 1 second cousin.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, 2035 15th St. W., Hastings. A visitation will be held at church from 4-7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 17, as well as one hour prior to Mass at church on Tuesday.
