I called the clinic today to make an appointment for my son and was devastated to learn of Dr. Lewis‘s passing. He has been my children’s pediatrician for the past seven years. He had a great rapport with both of them and had virtually seen them grow up! The world is surely a dimmer place without him. He had just remarked to my husband last month how it was rare that he was able to see military kids for this long as he did with us. Dr. Lewis was on a first name basis with me, and we always looked forward to seeing this kind, patient man. He always took the time to answer our endless questions and offer resources. We will miss him. Our deepest sympathies to his family.

I am so sad to hear that Dr. Lewis passed away! He was my first pediatrician from the time of birth for my daughters until we moved away when they were 3 and 6. He was incredible at his job and really loved his patients. I have always thought he was the best doctor I have ever met! He was such a kind hearted and warm person. I loved him and my girls loved him. He helped me through so much anxiety as a new mother and helped me feel so reassured in my parenting. I will always remember him fondly, as I know so many others will. I am so very sorry to his family for your loss.

To say our world has lost a kind and beautiful soul is such an understatement!

My heart hurts for his family, friends, co-workers and his many patients. Both of my girls were heartbroken to learn that they would no longer see his smiling face at their appointments anymore. My youngest (17) has social anxiety and meeting new people is challenging for her. She really loved her Dr Lewis and was very attached to him. Even with her anxiety, she trusted him right from the very beginning from when she was a tiny little girl to now.

Dr Lewis helped us through SO many medical challenges with both of my girls (now 17 and 19). But what stands out to me is that he always remembered their stories and really connected with them in ways other medical professionals just don’t do any more. He made many personal follow up calls to check on the girls when they were dealing with their medical issues. He demonstrated over and over just how much he cared. He was our trusted go to doctor when we were getting conflicting treatment options from outside doctors in the community. He also helped us navigate through so many treatment obstacles. He was an amazing, caring and wonderful human being who will be sincerely missed!

My girls and I just wanted to share how much we cared for Dr Lewis and to let his family know that we share a piece of their sorrow and send our deepest to condolences to his loved ones.

Rest In Peace, Dr Lewis!!

Roberto showed his love for his family, job, and showed being a nerd is fun. I wish we didn’t lose touch with each other these past years. I’m gonna miss our time meeting up for movies and dinner. I will miss him deeply.

Dr Lewis, I had the honor to work with you this past 2 years. You were my greatest mentor, a best friend and the best pediatrician a patient could ever ask for. Your passing is so hard to process. You were an amazing person and you left an imprint in our hearts that will live on forever. My family extends our condolences to your whole family, friends and everyone who loves you. Rest in paradise.

Rob was like a brother to me and I hate that life, work and everything else got in the way and we didn’t communicate as much as we used to. I will miss him and going out to eat and to the movies! Keep in touch with your friends and family while you can. I miss you Rob!

We are still in disbelief that Dr. Lewis has passed. My condolences are with the Lewis family. We met Dr. Lewis when our daughter was about 2 months old. We quickly grew fond of him and felt we had hit the pediatrician jackpot! He’s been the most amazing pediatrician to our daughter for almost 3 years. He will be missed terribly and I hope he knew how loved he was. I’ll forever cherish that our daughter saw him on Sept 2nd and had the opportunity to tell Dr. Lewis her joke. She was so proud of the joke she had come up with on her own and Dr. Lewis was a great sport and followed along with it and it made her so happy! She talked about Dr. Lewis the rest of the week after our last visit! May you Rest In Peace Dr. Lewis.

Still active duty I was blessed to have my first child. First time mom and nervous about all things related to being a mom, Dr. Lewis put each appointment at ease. Personable and knowledgeable is a understatement. Just an overall great human being. Rest in perfect peace

We still cannot believe that he is gone. From the moment we met Dr. Lewis we were smitten. He made the kids and I feel so at ease-they even enjoyed going to appointments! So patient and kind. He answered all of our questions no matter how much time it took. I was never afraid to ask him anything. When we brought our daughter home two years ago he (and Caroline too) shared in our joy as the adoption was finalized and every day since. Thank you to your family for sharing you with all of us. You will be forever missed.

We are so saddened by the loss of Dr Lewis, we love him and he will never be forgotten. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family. God Bless You, God Bless Dr. Lewis 🧡
