Joseph E. Lewis Sr. Obituary
Joseph E. Lewis Sr. of Norristown The company that you keep reflects your character within. Joseph E. Lewis, Sr. was an ornery jokester who loved to be in the company of others. He was happy to turn every occasion with his family and friends into a party. There were happy times and laughing times of Joe singing down the way. On Tuesday August 5, 2014, after 80 years, in the company of his family, the circle of Mr. Lewis' days came to an unexpected end at Einstein Montgomery Hospital in Norristown. Mr. Lewis was born in Piscataway, MD and had been a long time Norristown resident. He was a jack of all trades who made a career as a Dye Setter at Penco in Oaks but also worked as a bartender and wall paper hanger among others. He loved to crab, golf and walk the beach metal detecting, looking for that elusive treasure. Joe was an avid bowler and had been a longtime member of the Retired Men Bowling League. At home he enjoyed woodworking and the soulful sounds of Elvis Presley or Jim Nabors Gospel music but loved nothing more than spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mr. Lewis is survived by his doting wife of 61 years Harriett (nee Howell) Lewis. He is the father of; Judy & her husband John Larcinese, Susan & her husband Don Moore, Barbara & her husband Mark Bondi, Joseph & his wife Barbara Lewis and the late Robert Lewis. Joe is the proud grandfather of 16 and great grandfather of 9. Joe is also survived and will be sadly missed by his sisters; Helen Hefron and Carol Zekavich, and brother John (Rich). Relatives and friends are invited to join the Lewis family to remember Joe, celebrate the perfect 300 game and pay tribute to a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother on Monday afternoon between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm at the Boyd-Horrox-Givnish Life Celebration Home 200 W. Germantown Pike, Norristown. The time honored tradition of reuniting those we love with nature will be held privately.
