Hard co-worker with my brother Bill Schmitt. Tiger was always a great man that always helped others. Anytime I seen him he always asked how Iam doing and my family. He has a true heart of gold. Tiger is also great man for his entire family. I will miss running into him all the time. Bless him always and his family aswell.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Lewis family. We have all lost a good guy who always was smiling. I never heard him say a bad word about anyone, a true sign of a good person! Many good days in little league baseball. May you rest in peace! Class of 1980.

This was a shock, I have memories of Tiger smiling and having a good time whenever we were in the same area at the same time. My traveling is limited and I am not able to go to places like before and do-not get to see much of the family. I am truly sorry for the loss.
