    I am so sorry to have found out about Lewie, I wish the best for his family. I worked with Lewie at PCI Energy Services and High Valley Const. He was a good guy that never had a harsh word toward anyone. We had some fun times together on the road. I will miss him very much and cherish the memories I have of him. I will miss that deep gruff voice of his. What a swell guy!
