My deepest condolences! I first met LEWIS in 7th grade we were friends since then! To me he was always a kind soul and a lover of music like myself! The last 3 years we chatted on Facebook daily and I looked forward to seeing him on it and will miss his wit! His memory will be with me forever and a good one on that! Again sorry for your loss! Sincerely M Jones

My condolences go out to Lew's family and friends. He was a great musician and song writer/poet. We reconnected on Facebook and I enjoyed his musings and shared content. May his kind soul rest in peace now

What can you say about Lew? Cat was a great blues musician. Gear head until the end. Cheesy jokes, beany propeller hat. I will miss him forever. Scoot on, Brother. I love you and miss you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Lew was well loved in the region of Albany, NY. Our community is so sad over the passing of Lewis. Many of us older folks (baby boomers and generation x-ers) enjoyed his presence for 30ish years. Additionally, the younger generations, including my 13 year old son, took joy in speaking with him, listening to his interesting stories about his well journeyed life, and of course, being surrounded in the jaw dropping music he created. In this tough time, we are choosing to remember what a blessing it is to have known him. Our prayers are with you.
