It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Rotarian Lewis Strange and our condolences go out to his family and friends at this time.
Lewis was awaiting a heart bypass operation. Sadly, his condition deteriorated before he could receive the operation and he died in Hull supported by his family.
In his early years, Lewis was a farmer in Searby before branching out into local politics as a Lincolnshire County Councillor for Hemswell and West Lindsey Councillor for the Kelsey Ward. He was a keen sportsman especially enjoying cricket with Brocklesby Park and a long standing member of Nottingham CC. He played hockey with Brigg where he was 1stteam captain during a difficult period and brought great enthusiasm into the side.
He joined Rotary in 1969; he was President in 1996/7 and received a Paul Harris Fellowship in 2012 presented by President Martin Robinson.
We will be all miss his experience, wisdom and dedication to Rotary, RIP Lewis.
