Lewis Anixter Obituary

Lewis Anixter, of Yuba City, CA, passed away peacefully on February 17, 2018, at the age of 66, from complications due to a sudden infection. Lewis was born in Brooklyn, NY, on October 28, 1951.

n 1970, he joined the Air Force and was stationed at Beale Air Force Base where he worked for 19 years. Shortly after relocating to California, Lewis married Trina (Chrestensen) Anixter.

Lewis was an avid baseball fan and loved cheering for the New York Yankees and the SF Giants, but he was happiest when he was on the field. In his younger years, he volunteered many hours coaching countless teams. When he wasn't coaching, he played in local softball leagues where he was known for his quick wits and speed and was rarely thrown out on base.

For those that knew Lewis, the words "determined, strong, and inspirational" come to mind. After sustaining a traumatic brain injury in 1992, Lewis endured many hardships including a 5-week coma and afterwards had to learn how to walk, talk, and eat again. He kept his positive attitude and heart-warming sense of humor through his rehabilitation and was able to live independently due to his grit and strength.

While he was not able to play ball in his later years, he continued to enjoy the sport and watched it on TV along with game shows and classic sitcoms. He also loved playing games with family and friends and going out to dinner.

He will be missed by his two daughters, Kimberlee Hines and Jennifer Broussard. He had four grandsons, Luke Johnson, Logan Johnson, Cole Broussard, and Rolan Broussard; two granddaughters, Ashleigh Hines and Hannah Hines; two brothers, Jerome Anixter and Alan Anixter; sister, Donna Wagman; and his mother, Claire Anixter.

Family and friends are welcome to attend a celebration of life, which will be held at 11:00 am, Saturday, March 17, 2018, at the American Legion Post 807 where we will share memories and food. Casual dress and wear your favorite baseball shirt. In his memory, a contribution may be made to the American Legion Post 807, 5477 Feather River Blvd., Olivehurst, CA.
