Philip James Hewett, 42, of Arkabutla, MS formerly of Southaven, passed away September 18, 2022. Philip attended Bellevue Baptist Church, was owner and operator of Hewett’s Lawn Services and loved his job at Bass Pro Shop. Some of his favorite past times were hunting, fishing, camping and caring for his farm animals which included turkeys, chickens and ducks. Philip had just built and painted a deer stand and was really proud of his handy work. He loved most of all, spending time and making memories with family and friends. He will be remembered for his tender heart, the love and compassion that he showed to all people and for his generosity. Philip had a big heart for animals and would have wanted any memorials to be sent to your local animal shelter.
