Jay Lewis....

Post by AlisoBob »

.... died last night in a Harley vs. Car crash. Jay was a legend on his bikes, behind the grill, or just mixing drinks.

He was the glue that kept many rides and friendships from exploding, his favorite thing in life was to share the love.

You taught me many things Jay.... and sharing the love was one of them.

I'll miss you forever......

Man I've got no pictures just memories. Jay was cool to me from the second I met him....he was the same way to everyone as far as I could tell. I hung out with him for the first few days a little and then another night when everyone left. We got half sauced on his Mai Tai's and shot the shit till late. I always felt we would hang again......The absolute coolest dude. Real Sad day.

My condolences to his family. :cry:

A great loss indeed. I only ever met Jay once, but in that one time, he very much lived up to his online reputation as one of the highest quality individuals one could hope to meet.

I would like to post a couple of pic's of Jay. For some reason I can't seem to get it done. Jay was a great friend and a wonderful human being. I fished with him quite a few times. And man can he fish! I am going to miss him deeply. I'll never forget going up to Rock lake to visit him and Cid. They treated my wife and I like gold. What a Gentleman! God bless you Jay. We will never forget you!

That is horrible. I hate to hear a fellow rider going down in a car battle.

Thought and prayers with his family.

Yea... its surreal he's gone. I told a story at the service how we were all sitting around the campfire, and someone tossed in a Sobe Bomb, right in front of Jay. For those who dont know what a Sobe Bomb is, its a glass bottle filled with gasoline, meant to explode.

Everyone scatters, except Jay. He slips on some sunglasses, and keeps sipping his drink....


WHAMMO!!! The thing explodes in a fireball / glass shrapnel filled mushroom cloud.

I rush over to Jay, expecting the worst....

" Jay, you ok!!" I ask....

Jay replied... " Why wouldnt' I be brother?..........."

And thats who Jay was......

For those who didnt make the service, I know its hard. Funerals are always limited notice by nature. Some may of had plans, or were already out of town, or sick. I have a relative who just doesnt do funerals.... period.


I found the time to ride dirt bikes with Jay, found time to eat, the time to drink, the time to build bikes... and the time to just talk. I fer sure was going to find the time to attend his services.

Others found time to fish with the man, ride Harelys, have Bible Studies, Pray, do weekend room additions, or just hang. They all found the time too.

Every one of these groups were well represented at Jays service.

To me , funerals arent for the dead. Jays dead, and he's never coming back..... funerals are for the living... the loved ones that Jay left behind.

Everyone who was their was supporting the Lewis Clan at their lowest point imaginable, saying goodbye to their Father, Husband, Brother, Son, and friend. I wouldnt have missed it for the world.

The folks who made the longest treks didnt love Jay any more than the folks who just came from across the street... it just means they had the longest ride home.

The Lewis Clan was very thankful for everyone from Jays riding circle who made it, and felt the love in spirit from everyone who didnt...

Cyd showed the most strength I've ever seen..... holding it together, flashing a smile, and finding comfort in knowing Jay was with his Lord.

I hope we all can find that strength.....

Sucks, I could'nt make it either. Let's go easy on these guys. I'm sure they wanted to be there too, as much as I did. My wife and I spent some quality time with Jay and Cyd. I'll never forget that. Nor will the ones who couldn't make it.

Let me tell a short story about Jay and my Bannedcr500 experience.

My first banned ride was up to Kennedy meadows, we had some drama getting up there but eventually found Jay's camp (he was out on a ride) so Bob, Al and myself took a fun ride through the pine trees that afternoon..
We had a small group but ate very well and drank Mai Tai's way into the night, I was just back from a Hawaii trip and had a bit of a of rum tolerance to keep up with Jay that night.

I remember a Glamis trip where I had brought a few extras beers in the fanny pack and offered a Jay to beer, he was really happy while cracking the beer on top of the hill saying" I am drinking a beer on top of Oldsmobile" Whoo Hoo""(Brit, Iggy, Bob, Mike, Saber, Jay and kid or two, my brother and quite a few others were on that ride). Good Times.

I have been on two Pismo trips (missed the last one). Jay was always in his element camping anywhere. Jay's Mom was on the last trip that I was on and was seemed to be very happy with us hooligans. I remember cleaning shrimp and scallops and wrapping themm in bacon in there trailer, she seemed to like the food. BTW> Jay's Weber Q200 could shoot flames at least a foot over the grill when cranked up, he friggin modified everything.


Jay was an awesome man that made me a better person and parent for the very short time that I had to be around him.

I would like to have been there, and I'm well known for making long road trips on short notice. I was unfortunate enough to get to spend Sunday at another funeral/wake that hit even closer to home than Jay in every sense of close to home, My neighbor and close friend of 13 years. I couldn't agree more that funerals are not for the dead, they are for the people who cared about them who are left living. You respect a person while they are alive, and I am glad I was at least able to do that with Jay.
