A great man and father,he will be missed by all. He always had a smile for everyone and an answer to every question. He loved his family, his work,the farm and river, and his community. May God be with the family and friends in this time of grief and sorrow.

Lew never met a person he couldn't or wouldn't talk to! I was a volunteer at WCH for 8 years, and even though it was sad Lew came in so often to see family and friends, it was a pleasure to talk with him. What a positive attitude! We talked family, kayaking, and cars. He will be missed! My prayers and condolences to his family.

I am so sorry to hear the the loss of Uncle Lew. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time of sorrow. I have many fond memories of "crazy" Uncle Lew and enjoyed Kayaking with Dixie and visiting when I visited from Florida. Lew loved the Cherry Creek fire house and that walkie talkie never left his side just like my Pop Pop who volunteered with him. May your happy thoughts and memory get your through these days ahead.
