The Rev. Trevor John Lewis

We announce with sadness the death of a former member of the Presbytery of Hamilton and express our condolences to his wife and family.

The Rev. Trevor John Lewis died on November 20, 2018 at the age of 91. He was predeceased by his daughter Sharon in 1986. He is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years, Joan, and by his sons Mark (and Donna), and Paul (and Krista), and by his grandchildren, Ellen (and Tyler), Sarah, Ruth, Anna, Samuel, Rebecca, Evan and Bronwen, and by his great-grandchild, Zachary. Trevor was ordained in the Calvinistic Methodist Church of Wales, also called the Presbyterian Church of Wales, in 1955 and has lived and preached the gospel with faithfulness since then. Following ordination Trevor ministered in Pontnewydd and Garndiffaith from 1955 to 1957, and in Sudbrook from 1957 to 1961. In 1961 Trevor and Joan immigrated to Canada with their two children, Mark and Sharon. In Canada Trevor ministered in Duart and Turin Presbyterian Churches from 1961 to 1965, in Knox, Waterdown and St. Paul's, Nelson from 1965 to 1975, in Knox, Milton from 1975 to 1985 and in Clarkson Road Presbyterian Church from 1985 to 1992. Trevor was an avid gardener, an accomplished artist in oils, acrylics and water-colours, a skilled chess player who, at 91, could still beat his computer chess program two games out of three. He will be missed by his family and by all who were touched by his faith, love, joy and endless humour. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 25 at 2:30 p.m. at the Neweduk Chapel, Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 1981 Dundas St. W., Mississauga, Ontario. The family requests that no flowers be sent, and that any memorial donations be made to Presbyterian World Service and Development.
