Demetrius C. Hewlin, age 16, of Chardon, died Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2012, at Metro Health Medical Center in Cleveland.
Born March 8, 1995, he had lived in the Chardon area for the last 10 years.
Demetrius was a junior at Chardon High School and affectionately known as "D" by his friends and family. He was very interested in healthy living and body building and worked out five days a week. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing computer games, reading books and stories online, listening to music, and donating his time at the Habitat for Humanity Resale Shop in Newbury.
Demetrius is survived by his parents, Phyllis (Tim) (nee Carter) Ferguson of Chardon; grandmother, Percy (John Davis) Carter of Southington; brother, Philip (April) Carter of Warren; sister, Hannah Ferguson of Middlefield; uncles, Jeff (Kathy) Ferguson of Chardon and Leo (Ruby) Carter Jr. of Houston, Texas; aunts, Cecelia L. Whitlow of Youngstown and Renea J. Carter of Bryans Road, Md.; nephews, Philip Jr. and Dareian of Warren; cousins, Andrea J. and Andrew J. Whitlow of Youngstown; and biological father, Tim Hewlin; and paternal grandmother, Thomasina Hewlin both of Washington, D.C.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Leo Carter Sr.; grandparents, Lester and Elizabeth Ferguson; and aunt, Pamela Carter.
Through this terrible event, Demetrius is helping better the lives of others by donating his organs to Life Bank. The family would like to ask that all light a candle on March 8, to remember Demetrius.
Funeral services will be held 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 6, 2012, at The Church of St. Mary, 401 North St., Chardon, OH 44024.
Visitation will be from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday, March 5, 2012, at the Burr Funeral Home, 116 South St. (Route 44, 500 feet south of Route 6/Chardon Square), Chardon.
