Malcolm J. Hewett, 75

HAMPTON, N.H. — Malcolm Jay Hewett, 75, of Hampton, N.H., died Thursday night, Sept. 6, 2007, at Exeter Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Alma M. (Felch) Hewett, to whom he had been married since Oct. 7, 1960.

Born in Greenland, N.H., Feb. 13, 1932, he was the son of the late Richard M. and Ethel F. (Akerley) Hewett and was a graduate of Amesbury High School.

He was a dedicated carpenter and craftsman whose keen eye for detail left him with a following of satisfied customers. Mal was passionate about family, friends, travel and all outdoor activities.

This passion can clearly be seen through a 60-year bond of hunting buddies known as “The Hounds.” He was also a faithful member of the Kathadin Club. Malcolm’s love of the outdoors led him to choose his final resting places to be Lambert Lake, Maine, and Jackson Hole, Wyo.

He was a veteran of the Korean War, serving with the United States Marine Corps from March 12, 1952 to March 11, 1955.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by one son, Jay M. Hewett of Concord, N.H.; two daughters, Jennifer (Hewett) Waldrep and husband Michael J. of Salisbury and Jill (Hewett) Kennedy and husband William T. of N. Hampton, N.H.; five grandchildren, Richard F. Bernard of Newburyport; Ashleigh N. and Kelsey E. Kennedy, both of N. Hampton; Daniel M. Hewett of Concord, N.H. and Jacqueline A. Waldrep of Salisbury; one brother, Clifford S. Hewett and wife Sharon of Bradford; one sister, Sandra A. Davidson of Westbrook, Maine; sister-in-law, Mary Ann Morrison of San Diego; as well as several nieces, nephews, and close friend Elaine Cox of Newburyport.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Malcolm Jay Hewett Memorial Fund, c/o Newburyport Bank, 21 Storey Ave., Newburyport, MA 01950, to benefit the New Hampshire Project Learning Tree; or to Our Neighbors Table, P.O.
