Obituary

Dawson Overweg, 15, of Stickney, SD, passed Friday, September 16, 2022, as the result of an ATV accident in Stickney. Funeral services will be 10:30 AM Wednesday, September 21 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Stickney, with burial to follow at Silver Ridge Cemetery in Stickney. Visitation will be Tuesday from 5-7:00 PM at the church. Arrangements by Bittner Funeral Chapel.

Dawson Jay Marvin Overweg was born August 19, 2007, to LeRoy and Penny (Dalldorf) Overweg. He passed Friday, September 16, 2022, just one month into his 15th year of life.

Dawson was an incredibly smart man with so many great ideas on how to make the world a better place. He was always striving to make sure that nobody felt left out and emphasized that being weird is a good thing. Nicknamed “Dorkchop,” Dawson was an absolutely hilarious young man. He made everyone smile no matter how good or bad your day may be.

He grew up in Mitchell, South Dakota, with three older siblings: Tanner, Kassidy and Parker Overweg. He attended L.B.W. Elementary School, then transferred to Longfellow Elementary when the family moved in 2016. He later attended Mitchell Middle School and Mitchell High School through ninth grade. Dawson moved to his dad’s house in Stickney and was to finish his schooling at Corsica/Stickney High School, where he was nicknamed “Jesus” due to his long, healthy hair.

Dawson enjoyed playing his Xbox in his spare time. Recently, he found a new hobby in weightlifting. He also enjoyed fishing. Dawson spent a lot of his time doing the things he loved—especially talking non-stop. Dawson worked at 281 Meats and loved his job.

He touched so many lives during his 15 years on Earth and now will continue to do so from the heavens. Among those left to mourn Dawson are his mother, Penny Overweg (David Kay), of Mitchell; father, LeRoy (Pamela Scouten and her son, Ronan) Overweg, of Stickney; siblings: Parker, Kassidy and Tanner, all of Mitchell; grandparents, Susan (Gene) Overweg Tastad of Stickney; aunts and uncles: Patricia “Patti” (Chick) Cavallero of Severance, Colo., James “Jim” (Shannon) Dalldorf of Loveland, Colo., Jacqueline “Jackie” (Clyde) McCann of Severance, Colo., John (Nida) Dalldorf of Summerset, S.D., Leon (Grace DeJong) Overweg of Mitchell, S.D., Deborah “Debbie" (Larry) Weber of Sioux Falls, S.D.; several cousins, great-aunts and –uncles and friends.

Dawson joins his maternal grandparents, Arnold and Harriet Dalldorf and paternal grandfather, LaVerne Marvin Overweg, in heaven.

Penny, Leroy, Tanner, Kassidy, and Parker - Dawson was such an amazing young man, just learning to get his footing and find his place in the world. I will miss his goofing nature, his gentle sensitivity, and the way he made me, and as others have widely noted, feel welcome and included. My deepest sympathy to the family, and especially his mother and father. Prayers and condolences

My sympathy to Dawson’s family and friends.I will always remember Dawson that sweet happy little boy that I had in my group on wensday nites at Wesleyan church. He always sat beside me eager to learn about Jesus. A couple of times he was pinching my arm and I asked what he was doing and he said he couldn’t wait for me to help him. He was my favorite and I feel blessed that God let him share part of his life with me.

Dawson,
Man I am going to miss you kid!!! You were so charismatic and funny, loving and full of life. You were the most incredible teenage boy with just the right amount of everything rolled into one. I would say I can’t wait for the day we no longer miss you around here but Emma will miss you her whole life time. You will be that piece of her heart that is always missing and never can be filled again. I hope you had an inkling of just how much we all loved and adored you. You were the Dawson to her Joey, Austin to her Allie, the Augustus to her Hazel. Rest in Peace and feel free to check in every now and then from Heaven

To all of his family ,
I can’t begin to say how sorry I am for your loss. I can’t fathom ever losing my child or sibling especially so young and full of life. I wish I had great words of comfort for all of you but reality is no words will be right, nothing will take away the pain.

John 11:35 “Jesus wept”
1 Peter 5:7 “ Give all your worries to Him, because he cares for you”
John16:22 “Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.”

You are all loved so much by so many and if you need anything we are all here

Dawson, man I loved being your teacher! I will never forget your sense of humor and the way you treated your classmates. You were always thinking about others and you had a special way of making people feel included. Your smile could light up a room. Your jokes always made us laugh. I will never forget being your teacher. You will always have a piece of my heart! Love, Miss Witte.
