Obituary: Rod Lewis
Date published: 21 July 2023
Rod Lewis, aged 81, owner of Half Acre House Residential Care Home passed away on 2 July 2023 at his home in Syke, Rochdale.
Though he had lived with Parkinson’s for many years, his death was unexpected. He is survived by Anita, wife of 58 years, as well as his son Gavin and daughter Simone, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Rod served out his career in the civil service. He started out leaving school aged 16 and retired in 2000 but remained an active owner of Half Acre House Residential Care Home, a thriving family business established in 1989.
Rod was a natural sportsman throughout his life, excelling at badminton, football and golf while able to successfully master almost any sporting code.
His leisure time afforded the opportunity to travel far and wide, taking road trips across the UK and Europe with his young family. With Anita he ventured further, visiting family overseas in Australia, developing a love for cruising and adventures to South America.
He will be remembered as a generous and caring family man with a captivating sense of humour. He raised a smile from all those he met and will be very sadly missed by his loving family, his wide circle of friends and colleagues.
Rod's funeral will be held on Friday 28 July 2023 at 10.30am at Rochdale Cemetery.
