Dylan Thomas Lewis was born in Monroe on June 28, 2005. He was the youngest of
two sons born from the union of the late Craig Lewis and Nicole (Bomia) Lewis. The
Lewis home was extremely lively with their very active and athletic boys. Dylan seemed
to have no fear and was more than willing to try something new. He had a great sense
of humor and was always the clown. The quintessential eye-roller, Dylan, wasn't afraid
to flash his mischievous smile when needed.
He grew up in Ida attending Ida Schools where he had just finished his freshman year.
He was an avid University of Michigan fan. Dylan loved to play football and played both
ways including center on offense because of his amazing ability to hike the ball. He also
loved baseball playing every position and basketball. It was in baseball that he earned
his nickname, "Sweets" ; not because of his pleasant disposition, but because of his love
for candy and junk food.
Dylan was sensitive, intelligent, and kind. He was a great friend, never meeting a
stranger, and a positive encourager, often giving his signature thumbs-up. He was a
great listener and could be counted on to keep his family in line, especially his mom.
Dylan was also quite creative and artistic, and he enjoyed drawing.
Dylan "Sweets" Lewis, age 14, of Ida passed from this life to Heavenly glory on Friday,
April 3, 2020. He was in his home surrounded by his loving family and under the care of
hospice. Although, Dylan's earthly life was cut short, his remarkable resilience lives on
through all that had the pleasure to cross paths with him. The Dylan Lewis Memorial
Foundation is a Love Letter to Dylan from his family and friends.
