Darrell Wayne Hewitt, Sr.

Darrell “Butch” Wayne Hewitt, Sr., age 78, passed away at his home in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, April 18th, surrounded by family.

Butch was born on July 17th, 1941 in Baltimore, Maryland to Ross and Hilda Hewitt. He grew up in Rosedale, MD with his siblings: Tommy, Kenny, Ross (Pepe), and Sharon. He received his GED from the United States Army when he joined in 1959. He was stationed in Panama where he met his wife, Zenny, and had two sons, Wayne and Bobby. After moving back to Baltimore, Maryland in 1963, they had 3 more children: Nancy, Kevin, and Dale. Butch retired from the military in 1964. He then became an automotive mechanic from 1965-1974, followed by a career working for a mobile trailer fabrication company for the next 5 years. His last career was in the convention & trade show industry as an operations manager from 1979 until 2008 when he retired from work completely. He and his wife Zenny moved to Orlando, Florida in 1989 where they have lived ever since.

Butch was an amazing and much- loved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great- grandfather, and friend to so many. He was stubborn, but wise. His voice was so calming, and he meant the most to so many and was the glue in his family. He loved each and every one of us in a unique way, and never failed to remind us of that. He liked to play the tough role, but was always full of laughter. No matter what the conversation was, it was a goal to hear his laughter at least once before ending a phone call with him. Butch cherished his grandchildren and great- grandchildren very deeply, they brought him all the happiness he could ask for and were one of the main highlights of his days. Butch always joked around about buying them a one- way ticket to Florida. We mourn the loss of Butch’s life and presence in our lives, but we are blessed to celebrate the life we shared with him.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Tommy and Kenny, his son Dale, and his grandchildren Jeffery and Robert. He is survived by his wife, Zenny, his siblings, Ross (Pepe) and Sharon, his children: Wayne, Bobby, Nancy, and Kevin; his 11 grandchildren, and his 24 great- grandchildren.

If you would like to donate in memory of Butch, his family asks that you make donations to:

Cecil Rampersaud Naraine

Cecil Rampersaud Naraine, age 95, of Orlando, passed away Sunday, April 19th, 2020 at Health Central Hospital in Ocoee. Mr. Cecil Rampersaud Naraine, started his life during an extreme humble era on December 1, 1924 in British Guiana. He grew up during the time of World War 2 and the worldwide great depression. He dropped out of secondary school so that he could go to work in the sugarcane fields in order to support his family. Later on, he became a police officer under the British rule and progressed through the rank to detective and presidential bodyguard. In 1969, he retired from the police force and migrated to the United States of America.
He was a pioneer in the true sense. He left Guyana in October 1969 to seek a better life for his family in America. He literally came to this country with only his suitcase and today, he fulfilled his dream and really made a name for himself. He selflessly sacrificed and paved the way for others to follow. Now today, many can look back and attribute their existence and success to him.

As he aged gracefully, he wanted a better quality of life for himself so he moved to Florida in 2003. He celebrated his 95th birthday on 1 December 2019, surrounded by his family and loved ones. Today, he succumbed to his illness and died in the place where he always wanted to be.  

He was one of eight siblings and is survived by an older brother, Mr. Harry Persaud, younger sister, Mrs. Pauline Ramrattan and spouse Hilda Singh. He was married to the late Mrs. Dhanie Lilkumar Naraine and Patricia L. Naraine. His children are Shamdai T. Doobay, Kenneth J. Naraine, Roy K. Naraine, Maurice A. Naraine, Ruth I. Rupnarain, Sandra L. Kopec, Felix S. Naraine, Elizabeth Naraine, Patricia Budhan, David T. Singh, Sandra Sunchit, Carol Latchman and Terry Singh. He is a grandfather and great grandfather.

An 11:00 am funeral service will be held on Friday, April 24, 2020 at Dobbs Funeral Home, followed by cremation with Pastor Thomas Hensley officiating.
