Lew had one heck of a sense of humor. If I could describe him in one word it would be a HAM! He was hilarious and always had the room laughing with a hearty laugh! I feel fortunate that I had the privilege to grow up around his awesome family! His smile and humor will always live through his children and grand kids. You will be deeply missed. Love, Melissa
