  1. We had the privilege of knowing Lew during our time with Bayer Australia. Lew was such a nice man, so genuine and always a gentleman. Such a beautiful tribute and celebration of a life well lived. Our sincere condolences.

  2. I worked for Lew in the good old Shell days and have never met such a decent, genuine, honest, caring person with a unique personality and such a way with words and words and words- – – – -. It was much more than a work boss/employee relationship, we were friends forever. I was sad when he went to NZ and we kept in contact. I last had contact with him when he was in Thailand, where I live now, for his daughters wedding. He was so proud. I never realized he was so ill and only found out from an ex Shell colleague in Melbourne the day he passed. My daughter who is now a Doctor, remembers Uncle Lew from when she was 5 years old and was shocked to hear of his passing, Oh no not Uncle Lew! We went to his house in Sydney for a BBQ.for his NSW country staff. I was so moved to see his daughters words and memories on the video I just wanted from his memorial service. Lew was UNIQUE, there will never be another like him. Rest in peace my friend, the world is a lesser place without you.

  3. So pleased to be able to have shared this.We felt very sad to miss have missed Lews Farewell. Sad times but can’t wait for the next party Lew.

    Love to you all, Ramona, Renee, Lauren and Faye. Xxx

  7. We were sorry we were unable to be there in person. Stephen represented the Brooker family. It was a lovely send off and I and sure that Lew would have been proud of the turnout and the wonderful tributes.

    Condolences to his family.

  11. I really appreciate the opportunity to connect into Lew’s memorial live streaming. What a great turn out of people & I was ‘tearing up’ during the service. Other a few issues early on with the streaming, it was an excellent way to hear all the great stories & tributes about Lew.

  12. A beautiful service, filled with wonderful stories about an amazing man. The last of the true gentlemen, there will never be another. x

  13. Hi Renee, Lauren and Ramona,
    Sorry I couldn’t be there with the rest of the family. Everyone, particularly you girls, spoke so well. I can only echo all of what was said. Lew will be sorely missed (seems such an understatement) but forever with us. YNWA x
    Love to everyone.

  14. Wonderful celebration of life service. Whilst I was not there as I am typing this I have tears, Thanks Lew for all the great laughs and fun we shared together.


  15. To Lew’s family
    My wife Rob and I had almost 20 years of fun with Lew on & off the field
    So many great memories — and ALL good.
    Love Nev & Rob Hedge
