Richard Hewitt was born in Moundsville, WV on, January 28, 1953. He was one of four children born to Charles and Gladys Hewitt. He graduated from John Marshall High School in 1971. Richard found the Bible to be a fascinating book, demonstrated by his cherished, well-worn personal copy. As a young man, Richard began his search for Bible truth, and in 1968, he made the most important decision of his life when he dedicated himself to his Creator and was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Among the congregation, he found the family he always yearned for.
Richard married Amy Shultz on June 19, 1976, and they were blessed with four children. Richard was a hard worker, and he instilled this work ethic into his children.
Richard fell asleep in death on December 11, 2020. He is preceded in death by his first wife Amy; daughter Jennifer Ducharme (Brent); his parents Charles and Gladys; his brothers Frank and Jeffery; and his sister Christine. He will forever be in the heart of his wife Sandra, whom he married on January 1, 2019; His sons: Curtis (Candice), Brian (Adrianne), and Paul (Ashlee); His four grandchildren: Reagan, Alana, Miles and Elijah; as well as countless family and friends, both physical and spiritual. We all long for the day when Rich will hear the voice of Jesus, instructing him to “come out.” He will then see the fulfillment of one of his favorite scriptures, Isaiah 33:24: “And no resident will say: ‘I am sick.” – www.jw.org
