RIP Dean Bitzel

Many, many Coonhunters knew Dean. He took care of our breeding services for years. Not a nicer guy on the planet. He sure will be missed by many!

Dean Edward Bitzel, 47, of LaFontaine, Indiana, died at 8:51 pm, Thursday, August 15, 2019 at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. He was born June 9, 1972 in Wabash County, Indiana to James "Sonny" and Sarina Marie (Tucker) Bitzel.

Dean was a 1990 graduate of Southwood High School. He received his Associates Degree from International Business College in Fort Wayne. He married Karen Mollett in Lincolnville, Indiana on September 11, 1993. Dean enjoyed the outdoors, grilling, fishing, deer hunting, mushroom hunting, and playing scrabble. He especially loved his family and the Lord.

He is survived by his wife, Karen Bitzel of LaFontaine, two daughters, Amanda Leigh Bitzel and Alyssa Marie Bitzel, both of LaFontaine, mother, Sarina Marie Bitzel, of Lincolnville, and brother, David James Bitzel of Warsaw, Indiana. He was preceded in death by his father.

Funeral services will be 2:00 pm, Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at Grandstaff-Hentgen Funeral Service, 1241 Manchester Avenue, Wabash, with Pastor Scott Johnston officiating. Burial will be in Center Grove Cemetery, Lincolnville. Friends may call 12:30 - 2:00 pm, Tuesday, at the funeral home.

I never met him but he did me a huge favor one time and it was hugely appreciated. He always made time to answer my questions. I had plans to take a female to him this fall.
It was no trouble for me to tell what a great guy he was over the phone. I am pleased to hear he was a Christian. It's easy to get caught up in these dogs. Something like this really puts the important things in perspective. I will be praying for his family.

Dean Bitzel

So sorry to hear about this. Dean, and his wife, Karen, are among the best people that I have met. Although many of us knew him on a professional basis, I can truly say that he was a man of strong character and heart. Ditto for Karen.

I wish the very best for Karen and the kids right now, and into the future.

Dean, you will be missed!

Dean was great at what he did. He was always kind and polite every time I was at his place. I don't know if anyone will continue to AI these females like he did without doing it surgically. He went way too young. Prayers for the family.
