Bill was a lifelong friend. His continual support of the operations of Hewit and Dougherty and later H&D Operating company were indispensible to its success. I will miss his sage counsel. My deepest sympathies to you all. Ben Vaughan

Bill, has been a customer of mine for over 53 years. My uncle, Don Ryan, was cutting his hair before I started barbering. I will miss his beautiful head of hair and his wit. I send my sincere condolences to Betty Ruth and his entire family.

I knew Mr. Hewit through his work with the Scottish Rite Foundation
of Colorado. He was a caring and generous gentleman whose concern
for children, families, and our community was heartfelt and sincere.
He was among the best!

Bill and Betty Ruth have been customers of mine for twenty-nine years. I was privileged to work on their home and to be around them. I saw first hand the deep love, admiration and unselfish caring that Bill had for Betty Ruth. His love was also very evident for Christie, Rich and Renee. Not with a gushing performance of showmanship, but a deep and caring love.
I know Mr. Hewit was an extremely generous man and charitable beyond belief, yet would prefer not to be in the lime-light or center stage but rather behind the curtain.
Often when arriving for work in the morning , I would in conversation ask about the weather forecast, knowing how Bill would have studied the "weather channel", due to his years of piloting.
Bill will be dearly missed by my family and me. You don''t lose a friend of his caliber without there being an emptiness in ones life.
My deepest and sincerest sympathies to Betty Ruth, Christie, Rich and Renee.
Thank you for sharing your husband, father and grandfather with the rest of us. We''re all better for it.
I guess the squirrels on Cherry Hills Drive will now get to grow old.

Betty Ruth & Family -
We seemed to have lost contact over the years with all the busyness of life but all of you crossed our minds very often with the most pleasant of memories. When he called, he would always say, ''Hello, This is ole Bill!'' We loved his sense of humor, advice, and that twinkle in his eye! It was such a privilege to have been able to know him.
Please accept our most sincere sympathy and prayers as you adjust to life without his physical presence. We know he will live on in all of our hearts.
Love, John, Zita, and James Rundel

My family & I were so sad to hear of Mr. Hewit''s death. I still can''t call him Bill as I really can''t remember the first time I met him, but I was very young & it just wouldn''t seem right. Christy & I used to play together often while our mothers got together & I''ll always remember the sparkle in Betty-Ruth''s eyes when Mr. Hewitt came home from work. He always had a smile on his face & a cheery hello for me. I know my father, Gene Neher, & he were good friends & successfully worked on many committees together at Cherry Hills. I''ll always remember Mr. Hewitt & his family with wonderful, fond memories & he will be very greatly missed. Love to you all - Robin Neher Cann

Dear B.R. and Christie,
I was so saddened to hear about Bill''''s death. I will always have the fondest of memories of such and kind man and wonderful family. It has been a hard fall and winter losing Mom, but I find some peace in the thought that there is a wonderful reunion happening in heaven... My thoughts and prayers are with you both.
Joy and Larry
