Lew Dee to be Posthumously Honored at Lubbock Park Monday

Facebook

A tree will be planted in honor of a longtime Lubbock broadcaster next week.

A red oak will be planted in memory of Lewis Thomas D’Elia, known by those across the area as Lew Dee, in McAlister Park on Monday, January 9th at 2 p.m. McAlister Park is located at Milwaukee Avenue and Spur 327. Lew Dee died on October 24th, 2011, following a battle with cancer.

While the tree is being planted by the City of Lubbock Parks and Recreation Department, it is paid for by Mr. and Mrs. Paul R. Beane. District 4 Councilman Beane and Lew Dee were friends, fellow broadcasters, and together founded KEND Radio in 1971.

The public is invited to the dedication event, which was originally scheduled for early December, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.

Lew Dee would have turned 80 years old on January 7th.
