Martin Lewis passed away only days before he was scheduled to receive his 40-year service award from the club. Richard Ellington, president of the RHLW Lions Club, bestowed the award posthumously.
Sponsored by Arnold Stone, Lewis joined the then River Hills Lions Club in 1981 and served as its treasurer for four years until his retirement in 2017. Before becoming treasurer, he had served as assistant treasurer under Tommy Haughton. Lewis was scheduled to receive recognition for his 40 years of service to the Lions at the March Business Breakfast Meeting but sadly passed away a few days prior to the Zoom session.
