I have such good memories of "Pops" guiding me with the FD Parades! Such a great mentor and a "Father" figure to me and to so many in the department. "Pops", you will be missed and will be in our hearts forever.

So many fond memories of "Pops". Playing "Santa" for the Auxiliary Breakfasts and for the Children's Christmas Party. Along with all the parades in the summer. He will be greatly missed. Our hearts go out to the Lewis family.

I miss a lot of the firefighters and friends that I made with my time at the LFD. Pops was a true gentleman and his mild mannered ways made him a pleasure to be around. My heart goes out to his family. RIP
