Scott E. Lewis became an organ, eye and tissue donor upon his passing on July 31, 2009 at the age of 50. Mr. Lewis worked as a welder with the Operating Engineers Local 545 in Syracuse and was a veteran of the U.S. Navy. He was a father and grandfather.
His daughter Tabatha shared this remembrance:
My dad was a huge Nascar fan. He wore many hats as to what he did for work. He was a welder and a heavy machinery mechanic. He was a father to four amazing kids.
I want everyone to know what a kind and generous man he was. He would go out of his way to help someone in need; even if he didn't have it himself, he would figure it out. Even in death he helped people.
I promote organ donation and I am a donor myself. My dad saved two men's lives here in New York and I knew I would register so if anything were to happen to me I could make a family not miss anyone.
