Farewell to Mayor Ted

Zeballos' Mayor Edward J. (Ted) Lewis passed away last week.

Dear editor,

It is with very deep sadness that we advise of the passing of our Mayor Edward J. (Ted) Lewis. Ted served the Village of Zeballos as our Mayor since December 2008 when he was elected by acclamation. No one else had the passion to go down the very tough road that was ahead.

His sense of commitment and progressive thinking moved the Village along the road to a brighter future. His professionalism, honesty and integrity were bar none. His smile and sense of humor made him especially endearing and a very amiable person to work alongside.

Ted’s primary goal was making Zeballos memorable to everyone he met and for them to come to love our little piece of heaven as much as he and his wife Barb. He fought a great fight for our Village – the battle with cancer, he fought valiantly and lost.

He will be sorely missed by any and all who came into contact with him, especially by the “Family of the Village of Zeballos”.

Eileen Lovestrom
