Trib­utes to ‘bright­est star’ AM

South Wales Evening Post - - LETTERS -

YSTRAD MY­NACH Plaid AM St­ef­fan Lewis has died from bowel can­cer aged 34. The dad of three-yearold Ce­lyn and hus­band to Shona died at Ys­byty Ystrad Fawr in Ystrad My­nach yes­ter­day, just over a year after he was di­ag­nosed with the in­cur­able con­di­tion. Mr Lewis had rep­re­sented South Wales East since 2016. A state­ment is­sued by Plaid on be­half of his fam­ily said: “To lose St­eff is the great­est pos­si­ble blow to our fam­ily and we know that there are peo­ple through­out Wales who share our sense of loss. St­eff in­spired us ev­ery day. He was our rock, he was our an­chor and most cer­tainly, our hero. Above all St­ef­fan was a lov­ing hus­band, fa­ther, son and brother. St­eff fought this dis­ease with the same courage and de­ter­mi­na­tion that he ap­plied to his pol­i­tics.wales will not for­get his con­tri­bu­tion and his de­ter­mi­na­tion to make a dif­fer­ence to peo­ple’s lives.”
