William Vincent Hewson Obituary
February 21, 1946 - March 31, 2017 William "Bill" Hewson, 71, of Burbank, CA, passed away on March 31, 2017, at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, with his son, William, by his side and surrounded by his loving family and friends. Born to William and Mary Hewson, née Munafo, of Albany, NY, Bill grew up in Cleveland, OH, where he graduated from East High School. In 1969, Bill packed his car and drove to California where he started his career in the transportation industry loading railcars. After running his own gas station, Hewson's 76, in Glendale, CA, Bill went into business transloading cargo into ocean containers bound for Hawaii. Passionate about restoring his fleet of classic cars, Bill was also fond of road trips in his '77 Stallion, and good food with his family and friends. He donated his time generously to the Big Brothers Association, through which he met his Little Brother, and longtime friend, Eric. He was predeceased by his brother, Carmelo "Carmen" and sister, Patricia. Bill is survived by his elder brother, Ed; son, William (Lakshika); daughter, Lisa (Brice) Chanzy; and grandsons, Louis & Jules. The family wishes to thank the team of nurses and staff at St. Joseph's for their excellence in caring for our "Daa". Pops was always there when we needed him and his kind spirit will remain in our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers, please consider honoring Bill with a donation in his name to the Providence St. Joseph Foundation (Burbank, CA).
