Jerry enjoyed the fellowship of euchre games with friends, and fishing on the river in Mishawaka.  He followed all of the athletic teams at the Notre Dame, and was a great fan of NASCAR.  He loved his pet dogs, most recently, “Bear”; but had many family members and special friends who were also loved.

He was first married to Sue Ellen Tomaszewski, and later to Janice (Stanley) Shepard.  He was preceded in death by his parents, and by a brother, Thomas Lewandowski.

Lewandowski of California, and Jeremy Bell Lewandowski of Mountain Home, Arkansas; grandchildren Haley Lorene Lewandowski, Nickolas Alan Lewandowski, Deena Anne Lewandowski, Douglas Michael Lewandowski, Brayden Lewandowski, Brylee Lewandowski, and Skylar J. Cowden; Jerry’s brother, Eugene Lewandowski of Leo, Indiana, several nieces and nephews; a special friend, Tammy Lockhart, and other friends, Daisy, Robin, and Norm who helped provide his care.
