My sincere condolences to your family. Losing a loved one is never easy, but our loving God promises to give you the strength and comfort you will need to endure the pain of your loss. He also promises to hold your hand every step of the way. Isa.40:29,41:10,13.

A great professor and a great man. He will be missed by all.

Andy was my teacher, my mentor, and my friend. He provided an excellent example for me to become the teacher I am today. I will miss him, his chuckle, his smile, his compassion, and his towering intellect dearly and I wish I could be there today.

-Sean A. Wempe

More than 55 years ago Andy and I served as officers for the Senior Class at HV Jenkins High, He was a thoughtful, creative and dependable friend then and from his notice remained and evolved into an esteemable scholar and valued man.

Since I only spent two years at Jenkins High, I will always remember Andy as one of the people who always spoke to me in school ... and that meant a lot to a new kid on the block. He was kind and he was oh so smart. My heart and my prayers go out to his family.

Andy was my date to the senior prom at Jenkins HIgh School. So sorry to hear that the world has lost such a smart, funny, nice guy. My sympathy to all who loved him.

You are all very much in my thoughts. I will miss Cousin Andy and his grace and wit. Love, Harriet

Dr. Andrew Lewis, Thank you sir for sharing your life with the world. Thank you for the many lives that you touched and shaped. Your legacy will NEVER be forgotten. Rest in Perfect Peace in the bosom of our Lord. Adieu!

We will miss Andy. He was kind to me as I began my new role as department head. I enjoyed his sneaky sense of humor and his passionate interest in Medieval Europe and devotion to his craft. Please accept Tina and my sympathies.
