It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ralph Lewis
our loving husband, father, grandfather and brother. Ralph died
suddenly at his home in Sydney on Monday, April 18, 2011, at the age
Born in Sydney, the son of the late Warren and Theresa (Power) Lewis,
he was the eldest of eight children.
In his teenage years he worked side by side with his father for
Chappell's Construction. Then, at the age of 19, he joined the Air
Force, where he served for 21 years before retiring due to injury at
the age of 40. Determined to not submit to his injuries, Ralph kept
busy puttering in his garage and yard or helping friends and family
with their latest projects. Ralph could turn his hand to any task,
and in the eyes of his grandchildren "Poppy could fix anything". His
greatest source of joy was his family. Whether it was a shoulder to
cry on or a helping hand he was always there for those who needed his
help. Ralph was faithful member of St. Joseph's parish and will be
missed by many.
He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Deborah (Martell); and
their two children, Stacey (Chris) Boutilier, Sydney, and Todd,
Grande Prairie, Alta.; as well his grandchildren, Rhys and Caleb
Boutilier, and stepgrandchildren, Adam and Caitlin Boutilier. He is
also survived by his stepmother, Rose (Gillis) Lewis; and his five
sisters, Anne Philpot (Les Dancsecs), Margaret (Danny) Roach, Mary
(Steve) Ash, Warna (David) MacNeil and Grace Patterson (Dave
MacDonald); two brothers, Joe (Carol) Lewis and Eddie Lewis (Shelly
Lockhart); and many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by
brother-in-law, Fred (Carol) Martell; sisters-in-law, Judy Martell,
Marie (John) Drohan, Eunice (Clarence) Stang, Marie Nugent and Sally
(late Leo) Martell.
Visitation will be held at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel on Monday,
