Glenn Wesley Hewitt
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.
