Laurel, Ian & Jason,
My deepest sympathy goes out to you following the recent death in your family.
Rick LaumanI am so sorry to hear the news of "Lew's" passing. I enjoyed working with him and our conversations over the years. I know he will be missed by his family and by the WoodMizer family as well.
Lew was a GREAT guy and longtime friend of many of us at Wood-Mizer US. What I always appreciated about Lew was his honest and humble approach to everything he did,letting his actions always speak louder than his words! He provided us a great example of what it means to work hard & to do what you say you will do for others. He has left a lasting mark on many. We thank God for the unique gifts and talents Lew shared with us through the years and sincerely thank his family for sharing him with us. God bless you all in this time of great loss.

We were very sorry to learn of Lew's passing. For a great many years we saw him doing demos with Woodmizers at various equipment shows which we also attended as exhibitors. We also had an opportunity to work with him in assisting in finalizing some leases for his customers on Woodmizers. He always had time to talk and we will certainly miss seeing him and extend our very sincere regrets.
Dan & Connie KellyOur deepest sympathy is extended to the Dingwall family. Lew will truly be greatly missed.

Samantha Haley (and son Brock)My deepest sympathy to the family. I often think of Lew still, though I havent seen him in years now. I will never forget all the good times down in Hibernia with him, there were lots. He was one of the faces I looked forward to seeing every year as a kid. It is hard to believe he was taken so soon. You are all in my thoughts

Gordon Emery LewisDear Family, Laurel, Ian and Jason, Elizabeth and Bob, his sisters Laura, Susan and Bother Peter,
I grieve with you all at the sudden departure, I hold Lew in my memories since we used to visit at Sable River and Tussle on the grounds around the Green houses and frog pond, to visits out west when he first started dating Laurel and wearing a Stetson( tears under his eyes for those western sun sets). Then finally on several occasions Visiting in Aylesford, and finally being a little jealous of the fine fresh cut timber framed teaching centre at the Harrison Lewis Coastal Discovery Centre. An amazing life filled with kindness and Insight. Rest in Peace in that "Sea Bound Coast". I plan to visit as soon as possible.
Yves and Pam Rioux
Sending our very deepest sympathies to you Laurel, Ian, and Jay. Our hearts were broken as the news traveled through the phone lines in New Brunswick.
Lew was a great "founding member" of the original Wood-Mizer Canada team, creating many lasting memories while working together for twenty years. Sincere condolences to Lew's family.
Vic LewisHi, to all those family and friends of Lew's who have sorrow in their hearts. Time goes so fast. One minute we're kids, playing on holidays in Nova Scotia,then life gets busy and everything changes. I regret not having known Lew better.I will be there in spirit on Sat. "Best Wishes" Sincerely cousin Vic and Family.
Bonnie LoweYour in my thoughts and prayers. Lew was one of a kind and anyone who had the opportunity to me him has been blessed.
Dick & Diane Endris
Laurel - I had hoped to visit this fall to try some fishing with Lew. It would have been the first time since we were kids on Duke Estate. I can only imagine your loss but Lew was a very good man and I'm glad you two had years together. I shall miss him too. dick

I am so sorry for your loss of a great brother and a great husband. I have not been to blue beach for quite a while but I still hold you guys in my heart.
Les, Heather, Joanna and Craig MacKenzie
Greatly shocked and saddened to see Lew's obituary. Our thoughts are with you.
Pam and Yves RiouxLaurel, Yves and I were so glad to see you , Ian , and Jay today, and being with you to share Lew's memorial meant the world to us.
Just want you to know that Lew brought so much to our lives as well with his gentle spirit, love of life, and his eagerness to share it in anyway he could.
It truly was a complete honor to have had him be a part of our lives for almost twenty years. And we will always hold his memory close to our hearts.
Our talk today was comforting and hope with all my heart that God continues to shower you and the boys with many more of his blessings. xo
Bruce VierhellerI met Lew at Southwest High School in St. Louis Mo. We ran cross country/track together & had hilarious & outstanding times together. I felt like one of the family at his parents home in the Missouri Botanical Gardens. I'm happily married, have a beautiful daughter & now living in San Diego and soon am going to be retired from UCSD. I had always promised myself I was going to visit Lew and his family once I had the chance. You are dearly missed Lew. I will never forget you. My love to Robert, Elizabeth, Laura, Susan, Peter and to his wife and kids. Bruce Vierheller
Kimberley and Cooper Family
Ian and Family, we have been thinking about you all and were so sorry to hear about Lew. Although, we didn't know him it is evident that he raised his sons to be alot like him. Your patience, understanding, love of nature and gentle spirit are some of the gifts he has passed on. Love to your family Ian. Sincerely, Jenns sister and family.
I just heard yesterday (July 11) through the grapevine that Lew died. My thoughts go out to you Laurel, Ian and Jason. I spent some very good hours with Lew, in the field and in the barn. We had good talks about logs, the behaviour of wood, his grand wood stove and other good stuff. I never have any trouble pulling up the sound of his wonderful drawl. Good memories, my friend. Thank you!
Bill Taylor, Atlantic Salmon Federation

So sorry for your loss. Lew was a classmate in Dr. Dalton Vernon's "Group Dynamics and Sensitivity Training."
