LeRoy ~ Lewis D. Mowry III, age 83, of Harris Road, passed away peacefully at home in the loving presence of his family early Sunday morning (March 25, 2018).
He was born Sept. 6, 1934 in Englewood, N.J., a son of the late Lewis D. Mowry Jr. and Isabel Gwynne Mowry.
Lewis is survived by his wife of 61 years, Beverly; sons, Lewis IV (Lorrie), William (Ann) of LeRoy, Timothy (Kristan) of Fairbanks, Alaska, daughter, Elizabeth (Jake) Fletcher of Salem, VA; 9 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
A lifelong farmer, Lewis started Mowacres Farm in Morrisville, VT in 1960. The family relocated to LeRoy, N.Y. in 1972, bringing the livestock and machinery with them and the farm continues today. He was proud of his chosen profession and was involved in numerous organizations through his years. Anyone who knew him loved his dry sense of humor and ability to tell stories of his heritage.
Special thanks to his care givers, Howard, Barb, Peg and others, for their professionalism and compassion in caring for Lewis.
There will be no prior calling hours.
