Oct. 4, 1957-March 5, 2010
Donald Thomas Hewitt, 52, of Frazee, passed away peacefully at his Rose Lake home on Friday, March 5, 2010 after a courageous two year battle with cancer.
Don was one of four children born to the late Kathryn (Farmer) and Harry "Hardy" Hewitt on October 4, 1957 in Minto, N.D. He was the beloved husband of Cindy (Peterson) Hewitt for over 26 years and father to twins Ashley and Jamie, whom he adored and cherished.
Don was dedicated to his work at Strata Corporation for 21 years. He loved fishing, hunting, burning rubber on his Harley, and most importantly, his family.
Don touched the lives of many with his compassion and guidance, and maintained his trademark sense of humor all the way to the end. He will be forever remembered by countless friends and family who were blessed to know him.
Surviving Donald are a brother, Robert (Wendy) Hewitt of Grand Forks, N.D.; and sister, Peggy (Randy) Kowalski of Minto.
Preceding him in death was his brother John "Jack" Hewitt.
