Jacob Daniel Lewis, age 26, of Fairview Park, Ohio passed away unexpectedly on August 21, 2018. Jake was born March 8, 1992 in Elyria, Ohio to parents Bob and Lisa (Clark) Lewis.
While in New London High School, Jake loved attending EHOVE Career Center’s Firefighter/EMT program. Since 2013 he worked as a Journeyman with the Building Laborers’ Local 310. However, his true passion was body building with a goal to compete and to train others. He worked a short time at the Westlake YMCA and at Powerhouse (Crossley) gym. A proud moment for Jake was when he shook hands with Sylvester Stallone at the annual Arnold Sports Festival competition that he went to with his mom for his 18th birthday.
Jake was very good with children; they made him laugh. He also enjoyed spending time with older people. Jake was extremely articulate, deep, sensitive and funny. He enjoyed nature, especially ponds, creeks, reservoirs and Lake Erie. He had a sweet tooth for Becker’s Donuts, cinnamon buns, white chocolate and Twizzlers. He liked country and other music, the TV show Supernatural, reading books, and he kept his Clark family heirloom bible nearby. Jake was close to his dad and to his grandma, Marcella Clark. He also held a special place for his niece, Annaka Gurcze.
Jake was preceded in death by his father Robert Lewis. He will be greatly missed by his mother, Lisa Lewis; half-sister, Amber Lewis; half-brother, Nick Lewis; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 28, 2018 from 7:00p.m. – 9:00p.m. at The Hope Center (formerly Gateway West Church) at 15135 Triskett Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44111.
