Glenn Wesley Hewitt

January 27, 1941 - August 9, 2020

Glenn Wesley Hewitt, 79, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past twelve years, formerly of Tawas City, MI, passed away Sunday, August 9, 2020 in Cape Coral. He was born January 27, 1941 in Flint, MI to John and Betty (Alexander) Hewitt, deceased.

Glenn was of the Christian faith and served in The United States Air Force 4th Weather Wing Unit from 1961 to 1965, leaving the Reserves in 1967.   He enjoyed his time while stationed in Japan learning about the culture, getting local handmade suits, and befriending a local family.   He was once recognized by the Air Force for holding his post in a weather tower during a typhoon.  He was the CEO of Lapeer County Community Credit Union for 27 years, steering it from a mobile home in a parking lot to multiple branches before retiring in 2000.  He was a respected member the Michigan Credit Union League and served on several Credit Union Boards.

Glenn was a true family man who enjoyed sharing his time, talents, and hobbies with his family and friends.  Some of his hobbies included hunting, fishing and golfing. He could be found on many Saturday afternoons watching his beloved Michigan Wolverines or a golf tournament while finishing his daily crossword puzzle and sipping a whiskey and water.    He also enjoyed entertaining by playing guitar and singing.  His family will never forget his Sunday morning hymns and holiday songs or listening to some of his great stories from his younger years.   After moving to Florida, he enjoyed learning about the local flora and fauna, trying various local plants and flowers in his backyard.  He never met a stranger and would quickly become friends with anyone he met.  Glenn will be remembered most for his deep love and dedication to his wife, children and grandchildren. 

He is survived by his beloved wife of 53 years, Barbara Hewitt of Cape Coral; three loving children, Tracy Richmond of Sarasota, FL, Angela Hewitt (fiancé, Donald Johnson) of Cape Coral, and Joshua Hewitt (Rachael) of Lafayette, IN; sister, Cheryl Herfurth of Burton, MI; grandchildren, Nathan (Neomi), Nicholas (Nikki), Tyler, and Trevor; eight great grandchildren, Nicolassa, Nathan, Jr., Noah, Nena, Nessa, Grant, Anthony, and Gianna; several nieces and nephews; as well as the grand dog, Shorty.

Glenn was preceded in death by two siblings, Barbara Deggendorf and Jerry Hewitt.

Memorial Services will be held 11:00 AM Friday, August 14, 2020 at Mullins Memorial, 3654 Palm Beach Blvd., Fort Myers, FL 33916. Per CDC COVID-19 guidelines, Mullins Memorial suggests that all participants wear a mask. We remind everyone to maintain Social Distancing while in our facilities.

    Glenn was a very dear friend of my Husband and I. He touched our lives in so many different ways and he will be forever missed. We have so many special memories of times spent with him and Barbara. Guitar playing, golf, Christmas caroling, parties, gardening, dinners and so many more. He treated life right and life loved him back. Missing him forever.

    Glenn was my boss at LCCCU from 1986 until his retirement but he was so much more than that. He was a friend & in some ways a gentle father figure and he will always hold a special place in my heart ❤
    He was there for me during the loss of my own father who he knew well and that meant so much to me.
    We had so many great, fun times at LCCCU. He will be truly missed.
    All my love to Barb and his children
    Tessa 💙

    Angela and Shorty (and all the family) Hug each other tighter these next passing weeks. Cherish the amazing gifts he gave everyone with his wisdom and leadership. Remembering him and never stop talking about him and feeling his presence. He’s cloaked in the kingdom and has been welcomed thru the gates of heaven and made young and whole again. I’ve been praying hard for you, Don, Shorty, and your brother and sister. You’ll all get through this as a family using the strength daddy taught you to carry. Huge hugs and I will be thinking of you Friday saying goodbye as well as the following days to come. Huge hugs and lots of love to all.
