Albert L. Lewis, of Stamford passed away peacefully on July 16 at Stamford Hospital.  He was the widower of Eleanor J. Lewis. They would have been celebrating their 61st wedding anniversary this year. Four brothers and two sisters also predecease him.

Albert was born on April 7, 1919 in Gloucester, Massachusetts, son of Edmund and DeVeda Lewis. He was a graduate of Boothbay Harbor High School class of 1937, in Maine.  In his youth, Albert enjoyed playing basketball and was on a travel team that competed throughout Maine. He developed his skills in woodworking and built a variety of boats in his shop. He was later employed at Bath Iron Works. As the nation was drawn into WW II, Albert served in the U.S. Army throughout Europe from 1942 through 1945.

He received an honorable discharge. He spent the early years of his marriage in Boothbay Harbor, ME prior to moving to Norwalk, CT. While living in Maine, Albert was an active member of The Masons and former Commander of the American Legion. After moving to Norwalk, Albert joined the Carpenter’s union and was a successful self-employed carpenter satisfying the building needs of many customers.  Albert was an active member of the First United Methodist Church in South Norwalk for over 50 years. He was also a member of the South Norwalk AARP.   He enjoyed growing vegetable and flower gardens throughout his years and loved watching the Red Sox and Celtics. He was a generous soul who readily helped others.  Many enjoyed listening to the humorous observations and stories he shared with the Maine accent that he never lost.

  • To The Lewis Family
    I used to love hearing your father’s stories and talking about building boats in Maine. He was a man who had a love for life and his family. He gave me one of his box cranks that do nothing that he used to make in the workshop and give out to people, I display it proudly in my office at home everyday. I crank it when ever I need to release some nervous energy and think of him whenever I do. Your Dad had a full and loving life. Always helpful and friendly to all. A creative craftsman, loving husband, father and grandfather. He will be missed and remembered by many. Laura and are were sorry to hear of his loss and send our deepest sympathies. and are sorry we couldn’t make the trip up to CT. Your Dad reunited with your Mom in time for her birthday. What better present could there be for both of them.
    Love Larry & Laura Bogush

  • Dave and Sharon our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Dave through the years you frequently wrote and spoke so highly of your dad and how proud you were of his service to his country. We know he is up in heaven with so many of the greatest generation. Hard to see so many of our Dads passing on in the last weeks, have to believe they are always with us in spirit. Love, Pam and Mac
