Deepest Sympathies to Ellen and All the Lewicki's. There's a big story in Utica OD about him and of how he started our America's Greatest Heart Run and Walk in 1974, which of course still continues every year with thousands of participants and raises tons of money -he really made an impact !! So Sorry
