Michael LEWIS

LEWIS, Michael Lewis

We are so very sad to announce the death of Mike Llewellyn Lewis on June 23, 2011, following complications after surgery for cancer. He was a staunch Welshman, a teacher, sports fan (rugby in particular) and coach. He taught Social Studies at Abby Junior for 31 years while involving himself in the Swim, Karate and Rotary clubs. He was a founding member of the Abbotsford Rugby Club, not only playing for the club and sitting on the executive, but becoming the coach in 2001, and in 2002, he and Mark Ferguson led the Club to the BC 1st Division Championships. He was so proud of this accomplishment He will be sorely missed by Anne, Susan, Jason and his beloved granddaughter, Bailey Fennellow. He will also be much missed by the Lewis clan back in the U.K. His sister Helen, brothers Winsor and Martin, his son Rob, his niece and nephews, and many cousins. He was a no fuss kind of man and at his request there will be no formal funeral but a small gathering of family and close old friends, at 4 pm, Monday July 4th at 32301 Atwater Crescent, Abbotsford… However, what he really wanted was a Bon Voyage celebration to be held at the Rugby Club and details for this will be announced at a later date… Online condolences to the family may be made to: www.wiebeandjeskefh.com
