Lewis Warren Newsky

SOUTH BERWICK- Lewis Warren Newsky, 75, of Emery's Bridge Road, died Wednesday, November 25, 2015, after a decade long battle with Alzheimer's. Born October 14, 1940, in Dover, New Hampshire, he was the son of John Lewis and Elizabeth Grace (Warren) Newsky.

Lewis was in the second graduating class of Oyster River High School, having attended Dover High School until ORHS was built. He continued his education at the University of New Hampshire, where he studied Political Science and was part of ROTC.

He followed his childhood dreams of becoming a fireman and police officer, and spent time managing Newsky's Supermarket in Durham before his entrepreneurial spirit led him and his wife, Sharon, to start New Sky Greenhouses. Later he created NH Wholesale Bait, Bay and Ocean Charters, and Durham Point Boarding Kennel. He resided in Durham for over forty years before moving to the family homestead in South Berwick, Maine.

Lewis enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing (his handle was 'flounder-pounder'). He came in second in a national skeet shooting competition. He spoke fondly of the many hunting trips to the north country and Tidewater Farm.

Lewis is survived by his wife, Sharon, of fifty-two years, daughter Robin Newsky, daughter Sharon Anne and husband Jon Gagne, daughter Victoria and husband Charles Parker, grandchildren Katherine Gagne, Jonathan Gagne, Lachlan Parker, and Angus Parker, sister Kathleen and husband Neil Hickey, nephew John and wife Sarah Hickey and grand nephew Ryan, cousin Joseph Donahue and daughter Katherine Donahue, aunt-in-law Loretta Warren, and numerous cousins and god children.

Lewis predeceased by his parents, Aunt Lillian and Uncle Joe Donahue, Uncle William Warren and numerous other aunts, uncles and cousins.

The family would like to thank Frisbee Memorial Hospital and Hyder House Hospice staff for their excellent care in Lewis' final days. Family flowers only, for those who wish donations may be made to Ducks Unlimited (ducks.org) or a charity of your choice.
