I learned a lot about model airplanes; and, a lot about life from Lew. He was a good friend; I'll sure miss him.

Lewis was such a wonderful man, he spent so much time with our son, teaching him about trap shooting and about life. One of the highlights of Zax's life was being able to shoot Lewis's shotgun when we were looking for a gun to buy for him. Lewis will always hold a special place in our hearts for his kindness and generosity. Lewis we know you are breaking "birds" today in heaven! You will be missed by so so many people.
