Lewis will be Forever Missed. He had such a positive impact on his community. Known for being an awesome skateboarder and he was so looking forward to the New Skateboard Park and was a Big Supporter. Lewis was our local skate board icon. Supported many Bands, pro bono promoter, and #1 Van Halen Fan. He enjoyed getting his Monte Carlo Painted & Countless other projects.
We will always remember his wonderful smile & kind heart. A Survivor in life, a caregiver to his grandma (her PJ) till the end. He had endless talents, full of endless possibilities and a future full of life. He loved stickers and sticking them everywhere on everything. Knick knack expert and could make the best Shadow Box Displays like no other. Lewis had a creative mind and extremely gifted and talented. Always willing to help out friends when in need. We know how sudden and fast this has been and we’re all still in shock.
