Lewis Sparks

1955 – 2009

After a brief but very brave battle with cancer, Lewy, passed away in Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in the early hours of Sunday, July 5th with his cherished wife, Fabia, by his side.

A man of great taste, on Pittwater Lewy travelled in a typically battered tinny built for comfort not for speed; a Persian rug taking pride of place on the floor.  Many of the residents have called upon Lewy’s great electrical skills to fix wiring  install anything electrical in their homes.  Generous to a fault, he often would not charge for his services, and there are many stories of desperate home owners who relied upon him in times of emergency.  Fearless with a drill, he could do anything required.

As an electrician by trade, Lewy was a well known Gaffer in the Australian film and television industry, held in high regard for his warmth, generosity and unflappable good spirits.  With a diverse career spanning more than 25 years, Lewy worked on a wide variety of projects including commercials, television series, and documentaries.

Lewy loved nothing more than being by the water, beer in hand, surrounded by good friends.  In that spirit, Fabia Sparks, along with Peter and Kerry Scott, invite all those who knew and loved Lewy to celebrate his life at the Scott’s home, 9 Robertson Road, Scotland Island, at 12.30pm on Saturday, July 11th, 2009.  It’s waterfront, four houses towards Tennis Wharf, from Cargo Wharf on the Island, phone 9999 2910.

Lewis was such a gentle, easy going man who will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
