I remember Dean especially as a generous supporter of some of the town’s non-profit organizations or undertakings, making printings more affordable for some of our “good causes.” And his work was always perfect.

Dean Lewis raised a great family, started and ran a great local business, and was a great friend and neighbor to many. The quintessence of Southborough, and a sad loss.
