LESLIE KEENE HEWETT SR., 70 of New Portland, went to be with the Lord March 27, 2010 at Thayer Hospital in Waterville after a courageous battle with an illness.

He was a life member of the Elks Club. He enjoyed his second home in Florida, loved country music and bluegrass. Leslie was the life of the party.
