For those who knew Rotarian Lu Hewko, I'm sad to report that he passed away December 2 at 91 years of age.  At the time of his death, he was surrounded by his children. Lu was a great and devoted Rotarian having served as Clarkston Rotary's president in 1992-93.  He was very active in Ukranian Boy Scouts and involved our club, along with two other international clubs, in a major medical equipment shipment after the Chernobyl disaster. He helped found the Rotary Club of Kiev. 
Lu came to the United States after WWII.  He had to survive crossing both the Eastern Front at the beginning of the war and the Western Front toward the end of the war.  His stories of his life were fascinating!
You may have known him through his wife Natalie, who was a very popular teacher in Clarkston for years.
He will be missed by many.
