Robert Brunt Lewis
Aug 21, 1949 - Dec 4, 2020

Robert (Bob) Lewis, loving and beloved husband, father, brother, son, and mentor died suddenly from a heart attack Friday, Dec. 4, 2020. He was 71 years old.

Bob was born in Burbank, California to Bert and Melba Lewis. Bob was the 3rd child and beloved brother to Fred (Gayle) Lewis, Jane (Roger) Cannon, Tim (Sheryl) Lewis, Eileen Lewis, and Rachel Duwyenie Elthie. Bob attended North Hollywood High School and Brigham Young University.

Bob had many talents and interests. He immersed himself in technology, classic literature, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was an engineer, a poet, and a disciple. He could turn a screw or a phrase or to chapter and verse. These abilities provided for his family, gave richness to his expression, and inspired love for the people around him.

Bob lived a life of service. He served a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the country of New Zealand. The experiences he had there influenced him all his life. This influence took specific form every Christmas when he would prepare the cultural confection, Pavlova. He continued to serve as a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ all his life. He was a counselor, a mentor to the youth, and an impressively reliable home teacher. The families he served knew him to be a gregarious and loving friend. Bob was truly the neighbor of Christ's definition. He was a friend to the poor. He cared for the widowed. He ministered to those in need.

While attending Brigham Young University, Bob met and fell deeply in love with Jill Conger. They were sealed in the Los Angeles Temple on July 26, 1972. They have loved each other and been best friends ever since. Jill is quoted as saying, "He is the best husband there ever was". There are many observers to the validity of this statement.

Bob is survived by his wife Renza Jill Conger, his children Becca Jane Waite (Aaron), Bert Lewis (Angie), Dan Lewis (Linda), and favorite child Brittany Lewis. He has 9 grandchildren: Allison (Bradin), Michael, JaneClaire, Ethan, Jared, Landon, Bronson, Eden, and Brooklyn. He has 1 great granddaughter, Henley (Allison & Bradin).

Bob will be interred in the City of Orem Cemetery. A viewing for all friends and family of Bob & Jill Lewis will be held on Thursday evening, Dec. 10th, from 6pm to 8pm at the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home 646 E 800 N, Orem, UT. For the family attending the funeral, a short viewing will be held the next day, Friday, Dec. 11th at 11am before the funeral service. The Funeral service will be held, Friday, Dec 11th at noon at the same location. Due to Covid restrictions, seating will be limited. Only those who have been specifically invited can be present at the service. Do know that we love you all and wish you could be with us. There will be a live stream service broadcast through the following link https://www.walkersanderson.com/webcast.

Uncle Bob was always so happy and easy to talk to. I cut my aunts hair a few times in Jill and his home. The last time I went, as I was leaving I passed Uncle Bob and Aunt Jill on their back patio, enjoying their freshly worked in yard that they’d just given attention to (it was always beautiful). I hesitated because I had somewhere to be and if I’m being totally honest I’m not always great at talking to people. I’m so glad I took a minute with them though to sit down. They actually made my day that day. Uncle Bob and Aunt Jill have always been interested in my life, my family, my career... all of it... and not on a superficial level. A real, genuinely caring level. Even though that conversation took just a few minutes they made me feel so loved and appreciated as they always do. I remember leaving, thinking I wanted to be a better person in the way I treat others... to go above and beyond to help them feel loved instead of worrying about all my own stuff when I’m talking with others.. Thank you Uncle Bob for caring about your family so much, even your little niece, and making me want to be a better person. You will be sorely missed.

Dear Jill and family,
Hello everyone. My name is Tom Morley and Bobby and I spent our freshman year together in the dorms. Bobby was one of my favorite people on the earth. He was always a great friend to me. Here is just one of a hundred stories I could tell about him that fits in well with what you children expressed so well in the service. Mike Sumko and I took off on foot to explore one of the canyons close to campus. Being Eastern kids, much of what we experienced in Provo was new and exciting. On our way back to the dorm, we passed through an orchard, full of ripe, juicy apples. We each devoured a couple and then thought of our new dorm mates who would enjoy our treasures. I'm guessing each of us managing about 20 of the apple. Upon our arrival we called our offerings. We were immediate heroes. Then Bobby, who we had just met that morning, asked where we had gotten the apples. We enthusiastically described the orchard. He then asked if we paid for them and we looked at him is disbelief. We thought, pay for them? They were just there for the picking. Bobby then told us that we had stolen those apples. That had never occurred to either of us. We apologized profusely and he immediately told us it was bad what we had done and we should never do that again. By that evening, we had become great friends and the matter was never brought up again. Bobby had a gooiest about him and a wonderful sense of right and wrong. You might of heard about some of the fun. but outrageous things we pulled off that year, and I remember Bobby was often the one who acted as our conscious. But we were pretty persuasive, and he usually ended up all in. He was without guile, and a true friend. I twice stayed at his home and loved his family, especially Eilene. You should be very proud. I believe he was the best of us. He made me a better person and my times in North Hollywood are some of my most treasured memories. Despite the loss you (and I) surely feel...Isn't it nice we know of our Savior's wonderful plan of salvation.
Hang in there Jill and family, your future is glorious!

Love, Tom

I have many wonderful memories of my brother Bob. The one I will share stands out because it is a unique experience that happened when I was eleven and Bob was nine. Bob saved my life! My friend Judy and I were in the kitchen making a cake. We had a gas burner stove. I was boiling water to make the frosting. As I turned around the bottom of my blouse caught the flame from the burner. In those days most fabrics for clothes were not inflammable. I was petrified as I saw and felt my blouse on fire.
We had been taught in school to “stop, drop and roll’ but I was so scared I couldn’t remember anything. Luckily for me, my brother Bob, heard my screams, came to see what was wrong and then immediately got a towel and started beating the flames out. I remember running to the bathroom and looking in the mirror as Bob finished putting out the last flames. Mom rushed me to the hospital. I had third degree burns which required months of skin graphs and hospital stays. If quick thinking Bob had not come when he did I hate to think what would have happened. I am grateful for him and have noticed that throughout his life he has always gone to the rescue of anyone needing help.

Hi Jane, Bob told me that story several times. I did not realize he was only 9 years old ! He was so great at quick thinking. Always had a “ good idea”, to help us feel better. Thanks for sharing,Dear Jane.
