It is with great sadness that the family of Jeffrey Joseph Lewen announce his passing on June 7, 2021, at the age of 77, in Hemet, CA.

Jeff was born to Joseph & Eloise Lewen on May 2, 1944, in Chicago, IL. He spent 12 years in the U.S. Navy, working as an electrician. After he left the Navy, he spent several years working on construction projects through I.B.E.W. 569. He then went to work for the Navy Public Works Center in San Diego and Coronado until his retirement in May 2006.

Bowling was Jeff’s passion in life. He loved to bowl in leagues and tournaments and was a member of the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA). He also owned several Pro Shops where he sold merchandise and drilled bowling balls.

In his earlier years, he drag raced his 1970 American Motors AMX which he still owns today. You could always find him tinkering with cars and he could fix just about anything around the house.

In his leisure time, he enjoyed watching professional bowling tournaments, car races, and golf on television. He also loved going to the casino to play slots and he especially liked playing bingo at Pechanga Indian Casino and eating their Taco Salad while he played.

Jeff is survived by his loving wife Susan of 48 years and their three children, Elizabeth Davis (Brian), Jeffrey Jr. (Veronica), and Mark (Stephanie), along with their 7 grandchildren Reggie (Sierra), Elijah, Noah, Kevin, Isabella, Madison, and Kenzie.

He is also survived by children from a previous marriage, Patricia Evans (Lon), Lesley Deck, and Jordan Lewen (deceased), grandchildren, Jason, Jenna and Sarah, and his brothers, Joseph (Juanita) and Randy (Dawn) along with several nieces and nephews.

We will always remember the fun times we had with Jeff and Susie going on vacations together to Lake Tahoe, Vegas and just casino hopping here in San Diego. Jeff will be deeply missed by all of us.

The last time I saw uncle Jeff was the day before Easter Sunday and I never thought it would be the last time. When I was a kid I remember he would always take care of his pet birds that were in the kitchen at the old house in Spring Valley and he was always in the garage polishing his bowling balls since he loved to bowl. He would always make jokes and was very humorous. You will be missed uncle Jeff!

My older Brother Jeff and I shared the same father and family life together. When I am thinking about my brother and 8 years younger,
there are a lot of memories I want to share.
During the Cuban middle crises, Jeff was in the Navy. The ship he was on went to Cuba within a very short period. Jeff was not scared he was natural a strong person. It’s a quality I hope to have someday,It will always be part of my memory of Jeff

Susie, Elizabeth and the entire Lewen Family…. My most sincere condolences on your loss and Jeff’s passing. My heart goes out to each of you, and yours.
I’m happy to have met Jeff and played Bingo with Susie, Jeff, Elizabeth and Patty. And I will fondly remember our few days in Las Vegas for Power Bingo.
May God Bless your family and provide you with courage, strength, understanding and love through this difficult time.

Jeff, you have been part of my family for most of my life and sometimes I still can’t believe you are gone. But I know that you are in peace now in heaven with my dad. Someday our family will all be together….until then teach my dad how to play bingo and be ready! I’ll think of you next time I yell bingo.

Uncle Jeff, it’s so sad that you are gone. One great memory I have with you is the time me, you, Susie and Patty went on the Carnival cruise to Catalina and Ensenada. This was our first cruise and my first time hanging out with just my aunts and uncle. It was a great trip, and I remember you making funny comments and jokes while being there. You always had a sense of humor, and your laugh would always make me laugh. You will be missed. Say hi to grandpa for me.

Dad I am so sad you are gone. I am so happy I got to see you for the last time and you were responsive to me. I know on your 77th birthday on 5/2 you were sick and didn’t understand and then you passed on 6/7, But today was hard because I didn’t even get to pick out a Father’s Day card for you or buy you a gift. I hope you are resting in peace in Heaven and I will see you again one day! I love you Dad.

It seems so unreal that you’re gone, yet I know it is real. I’ll see you again someday.

My earliest memory of Jeff was probably 4 or five, by that time Jeff was in the Navy. I remember wanting to meet my brother. I was very proud that my oldest brother was in the Navy. After the Navy, Jeff stayed with us for a time with the twins. I think I held the record as the youngest Uncle ever.
When I was 14 Jeff drove the javelin to chicago for a visit, he let Marty take it out with me, what a rush that was. Every time I hear Emerson Lake and Palmer "Lucky Man" I think of Jeff and that car ride.
To everyone, I am sorry for your loss. To Sue I truly believe Jeff was a very Lucky Man finding you.
