LEWIS, Frederick Edward George

1928 – 2008

Died on August 18, 2008 at Peace Arch Hospital. Edward is survived by his wife, Mary of 47 years and his two sons, James and Stephen.

Edward was born in Swindon, Wiltshire, England to George and Rose Lewis. He became a ward of the Admiralty at three years of age when his mother died and George, a Royal Marine, returned to sea for another three years. Edward always spoke very highly of his foster mother, Edith Davies, who later became his step-mother when she married George.

There will be no funeral by request but there was a gathering of family and friends at LaMesa Club House on Thursday, August 21st at 2pm.

In lieu of flowers he requested that donations be made to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation.

Many thanks to the doctors and nurses who cared for Edward so well in his final days.


“There was a door to

which I found no key,

There was a veil past

which I could not see,

Some little talk awhile

of me and thee,

There seem’d – and then

no more of thee and me.”
