You're still my number one Lewis, and always will be. You have left such a gap in the world, there's no-one like you, you were a one-off. Missing you especially hard on this day. Love, SP. xxxx

Always in my heart Lewis. Thoughts are with your wife and sons.

A few weeks ago I started remembering one particular show I watched of the Professionals back in the late 70s. It was of Bodie getting into a fight with bikies and being helped by a guy who he would later kill (Don't know why it came to mind as back in the 70s I was never really a big fan and only watched the odd show).
So I downloaded the entire series and began watching everyone of them. Such a brilliant show. Lewis was an exceptional man. I must be getting sentimental in my years as I was extremely saddened when I heard he had died. Regards, Michael.

To Lew on your 5th anniversary
Still missing you so very much and sending you all my love, always and forever.

RIP Lewis ( Bodie ) thank you for the memories. I was born in 1977 and remember the professionals coming in tv on a Friday night at 9.00, I bought the professionals on dvd many years ago yet still watch it on tv and record every episode. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Gone but never forgotten.

Lewis, you was a big part of my childhood and my only regret is not getting to meet you when you came to Hull. You had a smile that melted the hearts of many girls. My own kids laugh at me when I talk about you because I always describe you as having gorgeous, blue, come to bed eyes. The world will always have an empty space without you. Sleep well my first crush. My thoughts are with your family and friends.

RIP Lewis, gone but not forgotten xxx

I will always remember Lew fondly as a wonderful actor who gave so much pleasure to so many around the world. A sad day for us loyal fans but even more so for his precious family. My sincere best wishes and condolences to them on this day which must be especially difficult. Kind Regards Kelly (Australia)

What a wonderful site this are always in my thoughts...think of you every are always im my heart sweetheaet....Birgit

Lew was an amazing man and a great actor, as well as a musician, singer and dancer and sportsman. It's a shame he did not get more actor's opportunities. It would be great James Bond. I can not believe it's been 5 years since he left. Rest in peace Lew.

Sending you mountains or love.I won't be sad as you said. I miss you every day.xx

Today it's been 5 years ago that left us an amazing and unique and so beautiful, humorous guy like Lew. Rest in peace. Terezka

Wow, 5yrs already. remember hearing it on the news

5 yrs have passed so quickly. It only seems like yesterday when I almost collapsed with grief after learning he had passed away. I couldn't believe it. My Bodie! Gone! I never had the pleasure of meeting Lewis although I did see him in person when he visited Hull in the mid 80's. So glad I did. Sleep peacefully Lewis. You are truly missed and always will be ❤

Cómo olvidarte Bodie? Un personaje encantador. Aun sigo buscando y viendo The Professionals en youtube. ❤

He is at Peace now He will not age or grow frail and gray RIP

RIP Lewis, so sadly missed but never forgotten

For the last five years, the sun hasn't shone quite so brightly.
Thanks for all the memories you've given to those that will always remember you and kindest wishes to your dear, beautiful family,
