In Remembrance of David Charles Hewlett
David Charles HewlettClarks Summit, PA March 27, 1948 ~ November 20, 2014 Date of Service: November 21, 2014
David Hewlett, of Clarks Summit, PA, passed away in the company of his family on November 20th.
Born on March 27, 1948 in Danville, PA, son of the former Betty C. Shaffer and the late Charles E. Hewlett, he was a graduate of Abington Heights High School and Syracuse University where he studied music.
David had a deep love and thirst for God and expressed this through his music, laughter and connection with others. He will be remembered by many sitting behind his Hammond Organ bringing joy to others though his music. This was his unique gift to so many.
David lost his father at the early age of eighteen; selflessly providing the stability and comfort for six younger brothers and sisters; sacrificing so much as a young man. This was his special gift to his siblings and his mother—who he loved dearly.
Ultimately, David’s life represented life-long commitment to seeking the deepest truths—no matter where this search led him and no matter how long it took. This was his gift to God.
In addition to his mother, Betty Hewlett, he is survived by his six siblings, Debra Muchler and husband Dale, Dennis Hewlett, Donna Bator and husband John, Darla Toth and late husband David, Dane Hewlett and wife Tammy, and Duane Hewlett and wife Sharon; and fifteen nieces and nephews.
The funeral was held Friday in the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home, Inc., Dunmore, with services by Rabbi Mordechai Fine. David was laid to rest in the Rosemont Cemetery, Bloomsburg, on Friday, November 21st.
There is no local shiva.
