Richard Laurence Lewis, 84

May 12, 2020

Richard Laurence Lewis, 84, of Wareham, passed peacefully, listening to Jazz music at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, MA on Wednesday, May 6, 2020.  Richard was the youngest son of the late Philip Edward and Hazel Lenore Gray. 

Richard is survived by his baby sister Phyliss (Gregory) Carr, beloved children, grandchildren, a sister in law, nieces, nephews and a host of family and friends. Because being practical and smart was always at the heart of Richard’s requests, the family is holding a memorial zoom service on Friday, May 15, 2020. 

Richard now joins his two older brothers, Ralph Robert Lewis and Claude Aubrey Lewis, in Heaven. They are undoubtedly pulling shenanigans, laughing, dancing and listening to Jazz together. To leave a message of condolence for the family please visit Memorial gifts may be made to: or
