 1                          SENATE RESOLUTION

 2        WHEREAS, The members  of  the  Illinois  Senate  wish  to
 3    express  their  sincere condolences to the family and friends
 4    of Earl W. Lewis; who recently passed away; and

 5        WHEREAS,  Earl  W.  Lewis,  a  longtime  Mount   Prospect
 6    resident,  worked  as  the district manager for United States
 7    Representative Phil Crane for 15  years,  retiring  in  1986;
 8    during   that  time  he  essentially  ran  the  Congressman's
 9    District 8 office, drove him to appearances,  and  even  gave
10    him a basement couch to sleep on once in awhile; and

11        WHEREAS, After his retirement, Earl W. Lewis continued to
12    volunteer his time to help out Congressman Crane; and

13        WHEREAS,  In  addition,  Mr. Lewis left his mark on local
14    matters; as an avid golfer, he was part of a small  group  of
15    residents  who  lobbied  in  the early 1960s for passage of a
16    referendum that allowed the Mount Prospect Park  District  to
17    purchase  the former Mount Prospect Country Club golf course;
18    and

19        WHEREAS, Earl W. Lewis served as a trustee on  the  Mount
20    Prospect village board from 1967 to 1969; and

21        WHEREAS, The passing of Earl W. Lewis will be deeply felt
22    by  all  who  knew  and loved him, especially his wife, Edith
23    "Pete" Lewis; his son, John T. Lewis; his  daughter,  Marilyn
24    Cuca;  his  sister;  his  three  grandchildren; his two great
25    grandchildren; Congressman  Phil  Crane;  and  the  staff  at
26    Congressman Crane's District 8 office; therefore, be it

28    ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, that we mourn, along  with
29    all  who  knew  him,  the  death  of  Earl  W. Lewis of Mount
30    Prospect, Illinois; and be it further
                            -2-                LRB9209406RHrh
 1        RESOLVED, That a suitable  copy  of  this  resolution  be
 2    presented  to  the  family  of Earl W. Lewis with our sincere
 3    condolences.
