Bob Lewis

Cedar Rapids

Bob Lewis, 86, of Cedar Rapids, passed away Monday, Aug. 20, 2018.
He was born Sept. 12, 1931, in Dubuque, the son of Paul Everett Lewis and Leona (Turner) Lewis. He was married to Ramona "Mona" Hansen. Bob enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, woodworking, gardening and spending time with family.
He also enjoyed his daily adult refreshments at the
Log Cabin and, with doctor's orders, he was still allowed to enjoy his refreshments in the care centers. Bob was loved by many. He had a passion for caring for others and never hesitated to lend a helping hand when needed. When Mona passed, he took pride in becoming "Mr. Mom & Dad" to the girls.
Bob is survived by his daughters, Toni Lewis, Linda Hicks, Sherry DeFord and Becky Lewis; nine grandchildren; six great-grandchildren and one on the way; brother, Paul (Jean) Lewis; extended family; and special friend, Tracy Klein.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Mona; and sisters, Betty and Carol.
A special thanks to the staff at Prairie Hills and the Gardens of Cedar Rapids for the excellent care given to Bob. Also, a thank you to Mercy Hospice.
