Born to Thomas and Cora on Nov. 30, 1932 in Akron, Colo., Lew attended high school in Steamboat Springs and was a member of the ski team and the Golden Gloves boxing team. After graduation Lew joined the Marines. He met the love of his life, Louisa, his wife of 59 years, in Oak Creek, Colo.

Lew was a lifetime entrepreneur – security business, gas stations, general contracting and he established the first animal shelter in Aspen. Lew loved hunting and fishing with family and friends. A wonderful man who became friends with everyone he met.
