VALE Graham Hewitt

Graham Hewitt passed away on Sunday 21st December 2014.

Graham suffered a stroke earlier this year and never recovered the use of the left side of his body. Graham contracted pneumonia and passed away at 2.25 pm last Sunday afternoon. Graham was an accomplished pilot and an excellent craftsman in both wood and metal. It was great to hear of the progress of his home built plane over the last few years – The Pietenpol Air Camper, a 1929 American designed kit plane - and it's a shame that he didn’t get to fly it for longer. Graham’s daughter Jane has cared for him since his stroke.

The funeral details for Graham are as follows: 
Bowra & O’Dea, 1307 Albany Highway, Cannington at 10.00 am on Friday 2nd January.
