Obituary of Lewis R. Losey

The world lost an incredible husband, friend, father, step-father (although to Lew, there was no step – he was simply a father and grandfather), grandfather and great-grandfather on November 2, 2020. Lewis Losey, 82 years young, passed away at his home in Urbana, New York, which he shared with the love of his life, Nellie. Lew was a United States Navy veteran and then retired from the Veteran’s Administration. He was predeceased by his brothers, Victor and Jack, his son, Andy Potter, and his grandson, Jesse Pruden. Lew is survived by his partner in life, Nellie Losey; his brothers, Jim Losey and Benjamin Losey; his children, Arthur (Jackie) Losey, Robert Losey, Gloria (Wayne) Faxon, Chuck (Elva) Pruden, Ronnie (JoDonna) Pruden, Roger (Kim) Pruden, Rose (Joe) Rago, Todd (Kelly) Pruden, Peggy Wurzer, Vince Pruden and Julie Pruden. Lew had the biggest heart and was known as Poppy Lew (a name which was first bestowed on Lew by grandson, Jesse Pruden) to his many grandchildren: Fawn (Zachary) Heins, Nicole (John) Smith, Hilary (Jamie) Losey, Dylan (Alexandria) Losey, Ashley Losey, Stacia Carrillo, Natasha MacDonald, Elanna (Robert) Rathburn, Gabrielle (Mitch) Derrington, Jessica (Jhonathan) Montero De Los Santos, Kelly Romano (Mark), Jamie Conway (Phillip), Derek (Megan) Pruden, Courtney Pruden, Briana (Michael) Fagner, Leah (Jason) Butler, Morgan (Steve) Rago, Joey Rago, Cheryl (Matt) Glashauser, Brian Pruden, Nathaniel Pruden, Heather Deal, Danny Wurzer, Adeline (Tom) Wurzer, Abigail (Steve) Wurzer, Clay Pruden, Kyle Pruden, Connor Hubler and Jenna Hubler. Poppy Lew was an even more incredible great-grandfather to Braelyn Westbrook, Michael Westbrook, Bradyn Smith, Cameron Smith, Dawson Smith, Mercedes Keeney, Bentley Decker, Liberty Taft, Brandin Beschler, J’lynn Plaisted, Jacie Plaisted, Guy House, Lauren House, Zachary House, Raymond MacDonald, Ryan MacDonald, Anaise Lopez, John Jevoli, Iris Montero De Los Santos, Ian Romano, Dylan Conway, Cody Conway, Bryson Howell, Bryce Pruden, Caleb Pruden, Nick Fowler, Lily Butler, Livia Mansfield, Chloe Mansfield, Isabella DeFreze and Alexandra Haskins. Lew will forever be remembered for his story telling, his sense of humor and, most importantly, his love for his family. Lew is also survived by Hunter, his feline buddy, and Lolita, his “guard” dog. In lieu of flowers, please open your heart and honor Lew’s memory and send a donation to Fingerlakes SPCA, 72 Cameron Street, Bath, NY 14810. Calling hours will be held on Sunday November 8, 2020 from 11:00-1:00 pm at Fagan's Funeral Home. A Memorial Service with Military Honors will be private for the family. A Celebration of Life will follow at the Hammondsport Fire Hall.
