    The flower fades and the grass withers away but the Word of God abides forever. Lewis loved to discuss God's Word. A wonderful, insightful and loving man!

    While Jon and I only had the pleasure of being in Lewis' company a few times, he was truly one of the most kind and gentle souls we have ever met. He had a way of making you feel like you'd known him your whole life. His daughter, Jess, is a beautiful reflection of him. Jon and I send our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Heaven gained another true angel.

    I worked with Lewis in my capacity as a line mechanic and later as a maintenance control tech at US Airways & American Airlines. His calm, level headed, approach to problem solving and soft spoken demeanor were attributes I admired and tried to emulate. It was my pleasure and privilege to have known him. Please accept my sad condolences for your families loss.
