Karen Witt said her youngest son, Owen, would goof off at times, imitating comic routines and speaking with fake accents, and once thought he might become a comedian. "He was not a studious child. He gave his teachers lots of trouble, but they all loved him," she said. He also loved to paint landscapes, sing and act in school plays. "He had dreams of being a big country western singer," Karen Witt said. "He was going to learn to play the guitar." Pfc. Witt, 20, of Sand Springs, Mont., was killed May 24 when his armored vehicle rolled over near Dwar, Iraq. He joined the Army after high school and had been stationed in Germany. Other survivors include his father, David.
