Born April 2nd, 1921 to the late William Charles and Gladys (McNally) Lott. Predeceased by Joan (Pearce), his beloved Welsh War Bride of 74 years and his siblings and their spouses: Cameron (Eileen McCrimmon); Helen (Max Graham); Muriel (Earl Judge); Hazel (Ted Stewart).

A natural athlete, Lew played baseball, hockey, and golf. During WWII, he played on 408 Squadron’s hockey team with Boston Bruins’ Porky Dumont against other Bruins’ Milt Schmidt and Bobby Bauer. Lew retired from General Motors with 25 years of service in the Stamping Plant, Oshawa. At 98, Lew’s family title of best cribbage player remained intact as he continued consistently to beat his sons-in-law, grandkids and great grandkids. Dad/Poppa, we’ll miss you “forever and always.” Love and a big “Cwtch”, your family.

My Poppa was the most amazing man, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He was always proud, strong, loving, kind, generous, funny and selfless. I am grateful for his service and to 33 years of many, many amazing memories with him. I'm also very grateful that both my children Zoe and Mason got to know and love him as much as I always have. Zoe and I are really going to miss playing cribbage with him and we're all going to miss our dairy queen lunch dates with him. We will all miss him so unbelievably much, but we will always remember and cherish our memories.
RIP Poppa thank you for everything xoxo
Love always,
Taryn, Brian, Zoe and Mason

To Neil, Sherrie, and extended family, we are sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a man to be proud of, serving his country in wartime. With Remembrance Day approaching it is particularly important that we remember he and others who have served. R.I.P. Mr. Lott.
