Fred M. Lewis, 68
Fred M. Lewis, 68, of Allegan, died Tuesday, April 5, 2016, at Blodgett Hospital in Grand Rapids. Fred was born April 17, 1947, in Adrian, the son of the late Fred and Amaryllis (Giese) Lewis.
Fred was a wonderful husband, father, grandpa, and step dad. He enjoyed spending time with his family.
He loved to bake and eat cookies, and so did all his family. Fred had the ability to fix most things and would always be there to lend a hand. He had a passion for old cars and enjoyed restoring them. Years back, he owned and operated a pawn shop in Cedar Springs and had stories to tell.
Fred always greeted the ladies saying, "Hi Sweetie," followed by a big hug.
Surviving are his wife and Valentine, Rene; his three children, Shawn Lewis, Chad Lewis and Mark Lewis and his companion Angie Aldana; his three step-children, Melissa and Rick McLoud, Sheri and Clif Evans and Shawnee Headworth and her companion Nate Weenum; and 10 grandchildren.
Friends may meet with the family on Friday, April 8, from 10 to 11 a.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Allegan, where a memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Pastor Dean Beckwith will officiate.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Lutheran Church or to Fred's family, C/O Rene Lewis.
