Nicholas (Nick) DeWitt

Posted On April 15th, 2012 -


61, passed away peacefully on March 14, 2012. He was born on July 4, 1950.

Nick was an extraordinary man who touched many lives. He was kind, generous, smart, genuine and caring. In his too-short life, Nick achieved much: he was a successful lawyer, arbitrator and mediator; served on the boards of many non-profit organizations; worked actively for the rights of disabled persons; provided pro bono services to many; and shared his joy of life with everyone who knew him.

Nick leaves behind many people whom he loved, and who greatly loved him, including his wife, Barbara Krieg; son, William (Bill) DeWitt; brothers, sisters, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews; mother-in-law; hanai father; and countless friends.

Per his wishes, Nick’s ashes will be scattered in the ocean, off shore from his beloved Waikiki, in a private family service. There, he will join his father and grandmother; he will remain part of Hawaii forever. Memorial donations may be made in Nick’s name to Tau Dance Theater, P.O. Box 1878, Honolulu, HI 96805-1878.
