John David Hewitt ('63) was born on December 16, 1943 in Amarillo, TX. John's father was in the military and although they moved around, he enjoyed spending some of his growing up years in Panama and Colorado Springs. He attended Oklahoma Christian College after high school and played baseball, and then enlisted in the US Army. After returning to the US from Germany, he was employed with IBM for 35 years and worked in North Carolina, Dallas, and later Waco, TX. John met Debby while in Dallas and they married in 1983 and had three sons; Jeff, Jeremy and Darby.

John and Debby moved to Abilene, TX after he retired from IBM. They worked diligently with the churches everywhere they lived. John passed away in Abilene, March 1, 2018 after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife, three sons, four grandchildren, and his sister, Sue (Hewitt '66) Goodnight and brother, Greg Hewitt ('73).

His life will be celebrated at 2:00 pm on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Hillcrest Church of Christ in Abilene. In lieu of flowers, donations to Abilene Habitat for Humanity or The Noah Project of Abilene, where he volunteered, will be appreciated.
