Lew was such a kind hearted, and loving man. He always took time to ask about, our health and well being, and always asked if we needed anything. Recently, he loaned me his car, to drive to a KC hospital, every day for a week, to spend time with my son. When I returned it, shiny clean, and full of gas, he said “NOW it probably won’t run right, with all of that dirt removed”. He was good to my mom, and our family. I loved him, like a father, and will dearly miss him.
So sorry to hear of his passing. He was a special person. God be with the family
Lew was a good person. He had a heart of gold and a wonderful sense of humor. The one thing that always impressed us was his knowledge of things. He could build anything with his hands. Through the years he helped us with several home projects. The last being that he taught Adrian how to fix a roof last fall. He couldn’t stand to just be on the ground instructing. He had to climb a ladder and sit on the edge of the roof to oversee the situation. He never believed in doing anything half way. If he was doing it, it was done right and it was quality work. He was a class act. We will miss him and we feel very blessed to have known him.
Dad, we will miss you. We had become close again after many years, and your spirit, your smile, your knowledge, and your undeniable sense of humor will be missed in the world. I love you dad, and Ruby you made the last years of his life the best years of his life. I am so glad you found each other. Dad I love and will miss you. One thing you can be sure of you were dearly loved.
Dad, you will be missed dearly and are loved dearly. Ruby we are so very sorry for your loss. Dad will always be remember for his wonderful smile, such a great man. We love you dad.
