Mike Jewett, 1939-2007
Mike leaves his wife, Sandy Wagen Jewett, Class of '66

My own deepest sympathy goes out to all the Jewett family, Tee in particular, and especially Sandy, one of the sweetest Nicolas girls when we were kids.

The Jewetts are simply legendary in Fullerton. They built thousands of the homes we grew up in, and shaped the look, the feel and the atmosphere of our hometown. Mike had been ill a long time, and this loss is deeply felt by more of us than can be easily counted.

Jewett, Michael Boyd, age 67, of Fullerton, passed away from complications of chemo. therapy Monday morning January 8, 2007.

Mike was born to Richard "Dick" and Virginia Jewett in 1939 and was the second of three brothers (Craig, Michael and Thomas "Tee") in Orange.

Mike loved golf and played on the PGA tour and was the head pro in Billings, Montana and Alta Vista Country Club in Fullerton.

In 1964, he married Sally Gorrindo and they had one son (Bailey Thomas) and one daughter (Danielle Susan) whom he loved very much.

In 1971, Mike began working for the family owned RC Jewett Company, which he still was a partner of until his passing.

In 1979, Mike married Sandra (Sandy) Wagen whom was with him when he passed. In Dec. 1998, Mike and Tom's oldest brother (Craig) passed away. Mike loved both of his brothers very much.

In October 2005, Mike and Sandy (nee Wagen, SHHS '66) finally moved into their dream home in Quincy, CA.

Mike loved the outdoors and fishing was his favorite hobby. But more than anything else, he loved the people in his life. He had a heart of gold and we all loved him very deeply.

You will be lovingly missed by us all!

Mike is survived by his wife Sandy, his brother Tom, his son Bailey and his wife Jeanine, his daughter Danielle, his grandson Chance, his granddaughter Nicole and the entire Jewett and Wagen extended families.

There will be a service at Loma Vista Cemetery (701 E. Bastanchury Rd., Fullerton, CA 92835 – 714-525-1575) on Wednesday, Jan. 17th at 11 am.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society (1940 E. Deere Ave., #100, Santa Ana, CA 92705 – "In loving memory of Michael Jewett").

Lastly, Chance and Nicole would like to say, "We love you Grandpa and you will always be in our hearts"!!!

My heart goes out to you as I understand the pain of losing a parent who is a guide, a leader, a person that gave so much love. My prayers are with you and I hope you find strength from your family and friends that are here to support you. Hold onto the wonderful memories of him that will remain inside you forever.
