Obituary

Stephen Phillip Lewis, 71, of Fort Myers, FL passed away on Sunday, September 5, 2021.

Stephen was a loving father, husband, brother, and friend. Despite living in a wheelchair for most of his life, he did not treat it as a hindrance. He looked at life with the glass half-full, ready to be filled with the adventures of day. Right now, somewhere, Steve is fixing somebody’s computer while sipping his favorite coffee. He will be incredibly missed and loved forever.

    You weren’t my real father and even though my father is in my life I still feel as though I’m missing a huge part of my life. You taught me how to build computers, work on cars the old school way, we remodeled the house together, I took apart and built so many wheel chairs it’s unbelievable, you showed me another side of the music world and I learned how to DJ because of you. Most of all, you were a father to me when you didn’t have to be. You took me in like I was yours and helped me in ways that I never expected. You used to be Steve My Weasel because I couldn’t say wheelchair but you upgraded to dad as I grew older. Nothing pains me more than walking into the house that I grew up half of my life in and not hearing you yelling down the hallway from your room for food or watching you drive away in the van to go to the post office for work. It hurts knowing that I will never be able to watch velocity channel and talk shop with you or sit in your wheelchair and talk about music and coffee for hours for the rest of my life. I can only hold those memories in my heart forever and hope to see you again one day. I miss you and most of all, I love you, Paw.

    I often think about Steve during my life. He made a huge impression on me when I was a tenth grader in Florida. We use to ride the bus
    every day together. He would purposely sit either next to me or in front of me. Then it began. The non stop barrage of jokes and amusing
    behavior. I could not stop laughing. All I ever said was, "that is sooo funny, or you are soooo funny" and mind you this was the whole ride there and back. Every day. Half the time I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard... tears and all. He would also mimic me saying, " that's
    so funny". I smile when I think of those times shared. So today I decided to see if he was on the internet and came across this extremely sad news. The only reason I can feel better is to know that he is free in heaven to run and jump around and continue the humor brigade. I am sure this will help him pass the time until he is united with his wife and family one day. This is such a hard time for his family but I am grateful that they posts show such loving support. I will never forget his joy in bringing laughter to me and my joy in receiving it. From these posts it shows how much he shared that part of him. It's wonderful.

    It is with great sadness to hear of Steve's passing from this earth. He was an inspiration to many as he navigated life from his wheelchair. If one did not know Steve and only spoke to him on the phone, one would never know he was disabled and required assistance to move through all tangible paths in his life. He had a degree of enthusiasm that motivated and encouraged many. He will always be remembered for his positive outlook, in spite of his physical challenges. My heart goes out to his wife and son at this time.
    Sincerely,
    Victoria Taylor

    Steve,
    I will miss you at work and talking with you. You were very smart and always had a joke or 2. I will miss not holding the door open for you and seeing you waiting at the clock to go home. We always went home the same way and I will miss that too!
    God Bless You in heaven!
    My prayers and thoughts are with your family!❤️❤️❤️
    Love, Lenna

    Steve:
    It is difficult to believe that you have left the building and the planet. You sent me jokes daily, fixed my computers when needed, shared wine and dinner from time to time, unfortunately not lately which saddens me. We all think we will live forever, so we forget how precious life is and how without a moment's notice it is gone. I will always remember your Rum balls, your great coffee, your mixed Techno & Jazz CD's you used to make for me and your fondness for the Holidays. You liked dressing up like the "Crash Test Dummy" On Halloween and just dressing up, you have left a huge void in all of our worlds and the planet, so I will keep all of the last e-mails of jokes that you sent me on September 3rd and when I need a laugh I will read them all and think of you. Look down on us and smile as we will look up and smile and know that you are no longer restricted to a wheelchair, you no longer have pain, but you are forever in our hearts and thoughts. I miss you dude, see you on the other side.
    Love,
    Lois

    We were very sad to hear of Steve’s passing. We know he was a very good man and we are so very glad you and he were so close.
    We also hurt for the boys. All the pictures we enjoyed of all of you and Steve and you and Steve and your children and grandchild spoke of love.
    Your many memories and knowing how well you took care of him over the years will give you peace.
    Love and prayers for you all❤️

    Steve was my best friend through the good times and not-so-good times. I met Steve when he was a manager at Top o' Mast in FM Beach and we were friends from then on; our little duo became a trio when his son Jonathan ("The J Man") began to hang with us on our many and varied escapades. Steve was the one who initially got me interested in working on computers, and we spent many long nights on our machines tweaking them so as to squeeze every bit of speed and efficiency out of them. I guess we considered those computers our "hot rods". As all his friends and family know, Steve was one of the most capable individuals on the planet. Despite Steve's handicap, he was able to perform duties and achieve results that most people would find daunting. Steve performed those duties and achieved results in a different manner than most people, relying on his imagination to construct a plan and then using his creativity to complete the plan. From working on cars and computers to re-arranging furniture in his home Steve could do anything I could do. His generosity knew no bounds, he was a kind man. He was a brother to me and I'm so fortunate that he was in my life as long as he was, because I feel I'm a better and richer person for knowing Steve. RIP my Brother. You are missed.

    I know Steve for the past 24 years and had the pleasure of working closely with him the last several. His positive attitude in spite of difficulties was something to be admired. His sharp sense of humor would always brighten the day. For sure, like many, I will truly miss him. My sincere condolences to Kim and family

    I miss my brother more than words can express. No one could make me laugh as much as he did. We hadn't seen each other in a few years but we always shared cyber pun wars (he ALWAYS won) as well as deep meaningful talks about life in general. We never talked about his "disability" though...only recounting funny stories about him adjusting to life in a wheelchair, and there were many. Humor defined him.
    He would call me quoting WC Fields or the Three Stooges and knew he would crack me up. My favorite, one last time, Steve..."It's not Paganni! It's Page Nine![ My life will never be the same without you. I love you so.

    I worked with Steve for 30 plus years. He was a determined individual and he let nothing stop him from accomplishing his goals. He did not like people trying to do things for him. He liked doing everything for himself. He did allow me to help him once. Someone had parked in his spot and he had to park in the lot. The parking lot had an uphill pitch. I was on break and saw him struggling, I asked if I could help and he actually let me. This was unusual for Steve. Normally he would get mad and tell you he could do it himself, but this day he let me help.
    I think Christmas was a special time of the year for Steve. He loved making rum balls and chocolate-covered coffee beans. You would see Steve with his Christmas hat and his tins on his lap and you knew you were in for a treat. Both of his homemade treats were a big hit during the Christmas rush at the post office. Steve will be missed.
    My thoughts and prayers are with his family. RIP Steve.
