John A. Lewris of Palisades Park died suddenly Thursday, July 25. He was 58 years old.

Lewis, who was rendered a quadriplegic over time due to multiple sclerosis, leaves behind his wife Michele and daughter Alexa, 27.

More than $2,500 had been raised as of Monday on a GoFundMe for funeral expenses.

"Despite this horrible disease, he never had a complaint and always saw the silver lining in his situation," his obituary says.

"John was a great provider for his family up until his death. He was caring, loving, had a great sense of humor and was tremendously dedicated to his family."

Lewris and his wife, Michele.
