    Heather and Roger,
    Thinking of you and your family at this time. I have fond memories of your “sports infused” wedding reception at your parents home. Jack was SO happy to have his friends and family around him, everyone involved in some type of tournament or round robin.....truly in his element, I remember him beaming from ear to ear!!! There will be many fond memories for you to cherish, I’m sure. Take good care of yourselves and pass on our condolences to your mom and the rest of the family. Rest In Peace Mr. Lewis.

    Rest in Peace, Uncle Jack Lewis. You and my Dad were brothers by choice, and my Dad had many great stories of your time together which, thankfully, he shared with me. Our summer gatherings at your Sarnia home were very special times for our wonderfully blended family. I will remember you as a big man, with a big heart, and a big laugh. My condolences go out to Aunt Helen, Heather, Sandy, and all of your loved ones.
