It was only in the last several years of his life that I knew him, but the kindness he showed toward me, my mother, and every single person he met was inspiring. Ewing was a genuinely nice man, and from the stories I heard from those who had known him longer, he had always been nice. He was an adventurer too, having hopped a freight train and traveled across the country in his younger days. He was also a man of great faith - always active in his church, and in his community. Memories of Ewing will always stay with me.
