Lew Bean

31st July 1946 - 12th June 2022

Lew sadly passed away on Sunday 12 June 2022. After a short illness he died peacefully at home. He was the much loved husband of Celia and of his children Simon and Victoria.

For many years Lew was a committed and energetic member of Devon OC. He established the original club website and had significant roles at a good number of small scale and larger events. He was also a proficient mapper, under the name of Beanomaps. Lew did a great deal to support the development of a number of the permanent courses in Devon. 
Those that knew Lew know that he had a great love of the outdoors, cycling, singing with Mariners Away shanty group and playing with Queen's Dock ukelele group. He greatly enjoyed trips away in our camper van.
