I owe you so much. You taught and provided opportunities for me to grow in music, travel and see England, to grow as a person. You are one of the kindest people I know. Until we meet again. Eddie Papp

Much love, respect, and gratitude for the life of this man, who touched so many. My father would tell me stories of singing under his direction during, I believe, his teen years at Elston High School. He learned much from him and passed on some musical wisdom tidbits to me, and others, if the opportunity arose. :) And he always enjoyed seeing him over the years around the marina, when Dad had his sailboat there. My deepest condolences to his family, and love to Phil and Amy. I hope that our fathers get together and get some musical wonderfulness organized up in heaven! I feel sure there could never be too much singing up there! ? ?❤️

The things I can say about Grandpa T, he was witty, smart, kind, and just plain an amazing grandpa. I loved our visits to MC learning about history and all the plants. I will miss you grandpa, I’m so grateful for you gracing our lives. ❤️

Our heartfelt condolences to Lew's family and extended family. His presence will be greatly missed. Every conversation with him was interesting, his knowledge and many areas of interest were amazing. Most of all, to me, he was the go-to-guy for questions about plants and gardening. Farewell to a fine gentleman.
