By request, here is my entry on Lewis Stephan.

I have very few memories of Lewis. He wore glasses, and had short, curly hair. He was with us at Clarke. I guess you could label him a minor troublemaker. He hung out with some people who were worse than him. But overall, Lewis was all right.

I seem to remember that as a senior, Lewis road a motorcycle to school. He had a girlfriend. But I have no idea who she was. One day she hopped on the back of Lewis' cycle, and drove off. My friend Dave remarked, "They're going home to screw." Could be. Who knows.

I believe Lewis joined the armed services - perhaps the army. For reasons unbeknownst to me, he wrote a few letters to Dave's mom, from Iraq. I remember a quote. "Same shit, different day." Perhaps there was some sort of church-related association between Lewis and the Svatek's. I don't know. In all the years I hung out with Dave, he never mentioned one.

The last I knew, Lewis had moved to Arizona, where he was working as a carpenter. I believe he's married to a woman named Catherine.

UPDATE - 6/18/07 - Thanks to Shannon Koch for providing this photo of Lewis from graduation day, June 4th, 1989.

Wasn't he friends with Peter Soucoup...or is that just some distorted memory of mine. I think Lewis was in my homeroom all four years yet I can recall little about him. I think he had an older brother that got himself into some legal trouble, I could check I suppose, but it's not necessarily relevant to Lewis.

This guy said only one thing to me ever.

"Shut the fuck up."

Pre-Algebra class. He looked as though he could easily disintegrate me with one punch so I did as he asked.

End of story.

His girlfriend was at that time was most likely Vicki Vanderbloomen.
