Lew was my dad, and my hero from a very young age! Although we fought contiuously throughout my younger years, it was not until later that I realized that it was because we were so much alike!
Lew Popko's Legacy
My dad only briefly knew his grandchildren ( My Children) Mark and Matt Williams. They were 8 years old when he passed on. My family has grown to include 5 grandchildren of my own Cody Matthew Williams, died at birth, his brother Austin Matthew Williams, his sister, Alexis Rose Williams, his cousins Maisie Jane Williams, and Trystan Matthew Williams. Dad, I have missed you each and every day since the awful day that Floyd and the kids came to work to tell me that you had left us! I will never forget when I went outside and saw the Bald eagle circling the house that evening! I love you Dad!
