The Memorial Fund of Rich Lewis

Who was Rich Lewis?

Rich Lewis was a wonderful husband, father, brother, uncle and friend, and if he was your friend, he was your friend for life.

Rich was also a struggling small business owner in Downtown Minneapolis for over 50 years and a talented musician and bandleader that has been playing all over town since 1971.

Rich died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack on June 1st, 2023, leaving an unparalleled sense of loss to those that knew him.

He touched the lives of so many with the generosity of his time, his talent and his support to all with an unfailing sense of loyalty and reassurance.

Rich leaves behind Barb, his beautiful wife of 40 years, and his two children, the pride of his life, Faye and George.

Barb has faced, and is facing, many medical procedures and mounting medical bills as the family is struggling to get their footing with that and their ongoing needs.

Please find it in your heart to help Rich's family in the same way he has helped so many through the course of his life.
