Today is Grandpa John’s 100th Birthday!  He was born in Spanish Fork to Frederick and Sarah Jane “Sadye” Lewis.  He married his sweetheart, Peggy in 1941 and they had 9 fabulous children.

John was athletic, loving to play baseball, basketball, golf and tennis. In his later years he loved to watch college and professional sports, but would often become so upset or anxious that he would lose sleep. He was asked to emcee many events over his adult life. Fear and shyness were not a part of his make-up.

He loved his wife and nine children. He was always dreaming-up new projects and losing sleep over them, until they were completed. He was an accountant, receiving his Bachelor’s Degree from BYU, and working on his Master’s at the University of Southern California. He loved music, playing the guitar and singing. He also loved to dance, especially to ’40’s music.
