Loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother and Friend


Lewis James Kacsandy, 77, of Avon Lake, passed away Sunday, June 27, 2021. Lewis was born April 15, 1944 to Joseph and Theresa (nee Lodyl) Kacsandy in Lorain, OH.
Lewis was born and raised in Lorain and graduated from Lorain High School. During high school he met his sweetheart Linda Szanto, though they attended different schools. After high school, Lewis honorably served his country in the US Navy Reserve during the Vietnam War aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga for two tours. Immediately upon returning home from his service, Lewis and Linda married on May 13, 1967 and enjoyed 54 years of marriage, 59 total years as a couple.
Lewis worked as a heavy equipment mechanic for the Lorain Thew Shovel Company/Koehring, later for Terex/General Motors, and finally retired from Merit Industries.
Watching Indian's baseball and Brown's football, enjoying British television crime dramas and gardening were some one of Lewis' favorite pastimes. Most important was spending time with his loving family, especially his grandchildren whom he treasured dearly.
"It doesn't matter where you go in life, it's who you have beside you."
Those left to cherish Lewis' memory are his wife Linda Kacsandy; sons Thad (Sheri) Kacsandy and Ryan (Laura Lowe) Kacsandy; grandchildren Kyle, Dean, Ben, Kara and Zelli; and sister Rosalee (Joseph) Kovacs.
Preceded in death by his parents and brother Joseph Kacsandy.
