In Remembrance of David Charles Hewlett

David Charles Hewlett

Clarks 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.

I was greatly saddened by David's passing and would like to extend my condolences to the family. My husband taught Dane & Duane Physics at Abington Heights. I was a baby sitter for some of David's younger (prior to Dane & Duane's birth) siblings while I was in high school. At the time I was living in Jerseytown. I would like to be in contact with the family.

Although I have not seen him in a number of years, David's warm charm and seeking spirit was a pleasure and inspiration to be around. He will be missed.

You and your amazing talent and kind and gentle soul touched so many in such special and unique ways. I will always admire your insatiable thirst for knowledge, your unmatched talent at the organ, your love of a good competition at the card table and a good pun, and your warmth, kindness, generosity, patience, and love. I will always treasure all the time we spent together and I know I will not be the only one who will miss you. I love you, Uncle Dave. Rest in peace.
