Lewis Neerings passed away surrounded by his loving family on Sunday, September 24, 2023.
He was born April 29, 1944 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Much of his youth was spent in Wayne County Utah where he developed a love for fishing, hunting and panning for gold.
Lewis met the love of is life, Linda Flint, on a blind date, they were married July 17, 1965. They were later sealed in the Ogden Temple on December 13, 1975. They were blessed with six children, who he taught the value of hard work, taking
pride in a job well done and the importance of family.
For over 40 years, Lewis was a highly skilled and professional glass glazer. Throughout his life he had the opportunity and responsibility to help build many projects including the Conference Center for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, McKay- Dee Hospital, and the Denver Airport.
Lewis spent several years working away from his family, so they would not have to be uprooted as he worked in various states. His main priority was to ensure that they were provided for and well taken care of.
He was a proud and loving grandfather to 29 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren, who looked forward to Sunday dinners and yearly camping trips.
Our hearts are heavy with a large hole that will be left in our lives without him here, but his love and legacy will continue to influence and direct our lives until we meet again. We love you!
Lewis is survived by his wife of 58 years, Linda Neerings, his children Jody (Brett) Lowry, Todd (Julie) Neerings, Brady (Christy) Neerings, Tonya Poorte, Danielle (Mark) Proctor, and Adam (Angela) Neerings.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Melvin and Virginia Neerings, Linda’s parents, Hector and Thelma Flint, son-in-law, Joel Poorte, sister Lawana Catalan, and his 78 Chevy.
