Del Witters's Bio

Happily married with 3 grown sons. Retired after 26 years of US Army & Coast Guard service. Prefer a firm handshake to a contract and I'm as honest as they come.

Purchased my first metal detector in 1973 and have found more than 60 pieces of gold and silver jewelry. Metal detecting for lost items, especially jewelry, is a learned craft and I am confident that with my extensive experience, quality tools and persistence I will find your lost item if it's within the area searched.
