Dear members, volunteers and friends of Five Rivers Council,

It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that I share the news of the passing of Five Rivers Council Commissioner Terry Lewis.

Ever the trail blazer, Terry had a lifelong passion for and commitment to Scouting, as evidenced by his years of service as a Scout, Volunteer Unit Leader and current leadership role as the Five Rivers Council Commissioner.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Terry’s wife, Diane, and his entire family during this time. Details regarding memorial services will be forthcoming.

The Five Rivers Council family has lost a very dear friend. 


Yours in Scouting,

Gary Decker

Scout Executive
