Obituary

South Glens Falls / NYC

John Henry Lewin Jr., 71, passed away Sunday, August 9, 2020 with his family by his side. John is survived by his beloved and supportive wife Casey Granton, and the daughter he was so proud of Courtney Lewin.

Born November 28, 1948 in the Bronx, he was the son of the late John Sr. and Mary (Banach) Lewin.

John joined the United States Army achieving the rank of Sergeant E5, proudly serving his country from 1969-1971. Nicknamed “Bird” by fellow officers for his unique whistle, John retired from the Transit Police branch of the NYPD in 1991.

John and his wife Casey were together for 25 loving years, marrying on October 23, 2015.

He was loved by so many for his amazing sense of humor, generosity and kind nature. He enjoyed horse
racing, most especially Saratoga Race Track, playing cards, gambling, shooting pool, Motown music, dancing, a good cocktail, and time with fellow retired Transit Police Officers. He was a devoted father and uncle, who loved fishing with his daughter and taking his nephews to the movies.

In addition to his parents, John was predeceased by his niece, Kimberly Lewin; grandmother-in-law, Mary
Edith Granton.

Gardiner); brother, Edward Lewin (Judy); sister-in-law, Elizabeth Granton-Monaghan (K.C.) niece, Tracy
Lewin; nephews, Jack Monaghan, Casey Monaghan, Eric Lewin (Alyson), and Jason Lewin (Jennifer);
goddaughter, Carol Gomez; godson, Michael Cassidy (Jennifer).

He was a member of St. Michael’s Church in South Glens Falls and Church of the Holy Family in NYC. John

When John is reunited with Mary & John and other family and friends in heaven, his first question will be" Who has a deck of cards?" John can also kid our grandfather about the NY Yankees - "the bums."
My favorite story is what happened on 9/11. John would chauffeur a man to the financial district in the city. On 9/11, the man's alarm clock did not go off. They were late in leaving. If John had been on time, I'm sure that he would have rushed into those buildings to rescue people.
John was fun to be with. He always joked around. He was generous just like his parents.
John will be missed. We all loved you "cuz".

There are so many memories of John. Too numerous to put on paper but all that bring a smile to our face and big laugh from our hearts. Rich says he hasn’t drank in years but on Friday will be raising a glass to his cousin who he loved. There are definitely side bets going on wherever he is. Love you all with all our hearts.

My Condolences to the Lewin family. I am very sorry for your loss of John. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I know it’s hard to go through this pain, but I hope you may find comfort in knowing that God cares about how you feel and that He promises that “there is going to be a resurrection.” (Acts 24:15)(1 Peter 5:7) Won’t that be wonderful to see our loved ones again! I hope this promise brings you comfort as it does me.
