Michael J. Hewitt, 62, of Taylor, died peacefully Thursday morning at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, surrounded by his loving family. His loving devoted wife of 39 years is Mary Lynn Semian Hewitt.
Born February 21, 1957 in Taylor, he was the son of the late Donald and Margaret Coleman Hewitt. Mike was a graduate of Riverside High School, Class of 1976. He was a former member of St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, Avoca and a member of the Taylor American Legion, Post 306. He worked the past 17 years as a forklift operator for Azek Company, Moosic. The most important thing in Mike’s life was his family. His pride and joy were his three sons, his adoring grandchildren and had a special bond with his loving daughters-in-law. A diehard Pittsburgh Pirates and NY Jets fan, he always enjoyed baseball and football seasons every year. Mike was a true do-it-yourselfer, performing carpentry work and home projects, gardening, and building his beautiful firepit in his backyard. Mike enjoyed traveling with his wife on their many trips together.
