Born March 8, 1995, he lived in the Chardon area for the last 10 years. Demetrius was a junior at Chardon High School and affectionately known as “D” by his friends and family.

He was very interested in healthy living and body building and worked out five days a week. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing computer games, reading books and stories online, listening to music and donating his time at the Habitat for Humanity Resale Shop in Newbury.

Whitlow, both of Youngstown, Ohio; and biological father, Tim Hewlin and paternal grandmother, Thomasina Hewlin, both of Washington D.C.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Leo Carter Sr.; grandparents, Lester and Elizabeth Ferguson; and aunt Pamela Carter.

Through this terrible event, Demetrius is helping better the lives of others by donating his organs to Lifebanc. The family would like to ask that all light a candle on Thursday, March 8th, to remember Demetrius.

Funeral Service will be 10 a.m., Tuesday, March 6th, at The Church of St. Mary, 401 North St., Chardon.
