LEWIS, Harold “Dorn” - Our dear father passed away peacefully at the Cedarwood Lodge on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at age 90. The son of the late Gordon and Kay (Spence) Lewis, and brother to the late Gordie (late Joanne) and Diane LaRue (late Leo LaRue). A proud Saulite all of his life, he was married to the love of his life Betty (DiPietro) from 1956 until her passing in 2016 and was the beloved father of Chris (Angie), Mark, Robbie and the late David. He was a loving grampy to Melissa (Pierre Boucher), Stephanie (Tim Shaw), Lauren (Kurtis Perreault), Sarah (Mike Mageran), and Mathew; as well as step-grandpa to Kylie Turpin, Maddie Wallace and Rikki Duguay. He was also a proud great-grandfather to Asha and Jade Perri, Theron and Odin Perreault and Russell Mageran; uncle to many wonderful nieces and nephews and a friend to many. He loved and lived life to the fullest, as a true people-person extraordinaire. He enjoyed many years with the Lewis, DiPietro, Wallace, LaRue and Gilbert families at Pointe Aux Pins and elsewhere, and truly loved boating and golf all of his life.

There will not be a formal funeral or visitation, but a private family celebration of life will be held at a later date. Special thanks to the staff of Cedarwood Lodge for their care over the past several years. Donations to Special Olympics Ontario in his name will be graciously accepted. Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home - Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St. E. - 705-759-2522).

Dear Lewis Family:

Doug and I were saddened to learn of Dorn's passing. He was the friendliest and most good-natured person out there.
Dorn was a good friend to my dad (father-in-law) Norm Powell. We have fond memories of the two of them together sharing many boating stories and their high-jinx when they were in the hospital together.
Our deepest condolences.
Doug Powell and Vicky Best

Dorn and Betty and family were next door neighbours of the Hilderley's on Lansdowne Ave.,as was Gordon and Kay before them.
Robbie Lewis and Scott Hilderley surprisingly engaged in periodic "backstep story telling".
Chris Lewis was posted in London by then ,with the Ontario Provincial Police.
As he progressed through the ranks to eventually become the Commissioner....he was a constant source of pride for Dorn and Betty and their extended family.
Dorn ,(and his brother Gordie) and I shared the bond of friendship and community service revered by ALL Kiwanians!His passing is being mourned by current and past members of the Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore, and the Kiwanis Club of Sault Ste. Marie (Downtown).
Both exemplified the "Objects of Kiwanis" in every way.
My heartfelt condolences to Chris and Diane and respective families.
