EWING W. "SKEETER" HESS, age 93. Beloved husband of Antonette (nee Torregrossa); dear father of Candace Hatton (James), Ewing “Kip” (Stephanie), Virginia Stucko (John), Diana Hess, Susan Lucier (Jeff), David (Marci), Victoria Morse (Richard) and the late Nancy Hess; cherished grandfather of John, April, David, Michael, Christopher, Allison, Jaeda, Emily, Madalyn, Caitlyn, Thomas, Sarah and Benjamin; great-grandfather of David, Elise, Shaker, John, Elliot, Fiona, Porter and Jack; one of thirteen siblings; loving uncle of many. Born in Millsboro, PA where he lived until enlisting in the US Navy as a teenager. He was proud of his service in the South Seas during WWII, and thereafter sailed with the Merchant Marines. He often entertained his family and friends with tales of his experiences at ports-of-call all over the world. He came to Cleveland finding employment at Ferry Cap & Screw and also finding Antonette, the love of his life, to whom he was married for nearly 70 years. Eventually he moved on to Chrysler until he retired after 30 years as a painter at the Twinsburg stamping plant. Retirement was filled with his duties as "Papa" to his 13 grandchildren, handyman, avid reader, solver of crossword puzzles and renowned authority on "Mayberry R.F.D.", every episode of which he had seen dozens of times. He cared most for his family and we will miss him the most. In lieu of flowers, contributions suggested to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675.
