So sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. Our sincere condolences to the Hewitt family. Ed provided me and many others an apprenticeship opportunity to become a Journeyman Tool & Diemaker and Moldmaker in the 70’s. I was fortunate to work for Ed and learn the trade through his expertise. Thoughts and prayers to all the Hewitt family. (Dave & Patty Ward - Texas)
