I have known Bill Hewitt since I was 15 years old. We met when I moved to the small village of Bloomingdale New York in 1969. We all enjoyed being on the baseball team, going fishing together and Raising Cane has all young boys do especially back in the 60s and 70s. We joined the Boy Scouts troop 19 under the supervision of Sandy Hayes we learned how to work together, we earned many merit badges and enjoyed the camping and hiking and the Project's Sandy Hayes involved us in as a group. I remember one time at a Boy Scout camp near Malone New York Camp Bedford, entire Camp of well over 200 boys would gather before dinner in a quasi-military setting. I remember a 50 foot flag pole that had gotten in Tangled so the flag could not be raised. Bill said I'll go up there and fix it Sandy Hayes nodded and Bill shimmied up that pole like it was nothing to unhook the Rope shimmied back down and the flag was raised properly without any further hold up. Bloomingdale was a great town and the Hewitt family was open arms. I'll never forget going up in that town with friends like Bill I would do it over and over and over again if I could. I'll remember Bill throughout the balance of my life and hope and pray that one day we will meet again in the next life he was a good friend and I'll never forget him rest in peace bill condolences and prayers to your family AFA Jim Russo
