Roderick LEWIS

LEWIS, Rodrick Frank Sept. 12, 1933 – December 6, 2012. It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Rod on December 6, 2012 after a long and valiant battle with cancer. He leaves to mourn Jan, his loving wife of 52 years, his children, Peter, David, Jennifer and Jon (Mirna); many friends and relatives in BC, Manitoba and Ontario. Rod will long be remembered for his total commitment and dedication to family, friends and the community, whatever he undertook to do. His never failing sense of humour was always a source of enjoyment. Rod was a lifetime member of the Abbotsford Lions’ Club and enjoyed having coffee daily with his buddies and going golfing with them. The family would like to thank the medical and nursing staff in the palliative unit at Abbotsford Hospital and the dedicated care he received at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission. You are truly special people.

A Celebration of Rod’s Life will be held at 1:00 pm, January 5th, 2013 at Saint Matthew’s Anglican Church, at Grace Church Worship Centre, 2087 McMillan Road, Abbotsford, BC.

If friends wish, a donation may be made to B.C. Cancer Research or a charity of your choice.
