Uncle Hewitt was a huge influence in our lives, both physically and emotionally! Hewitt and Helen opened their home to all of John Roeder’s family of 6 children and occasionally the dog, Gina! He taught us to ice skate, to toboggan, to swim in the lake , loved shooting off fireworks, boating and flying us in his airplane!!! He was intelligent, patient, kind and took an active interest in our lives and our families lives! We were so blessed to have him and loved him dearly! Goodbye Uncle Hoot - give our Dad , Aunt Helen, Peter and all the family who is there waiting for you a big hug! You will be missed! I love you Mary Roeder Prokop and family
