Lew Violanti of Hamburg just might be the number one Bills fan around.
Hes a loyal Monday Quarterback Club member whos never missed an event.
Lews courage can compete with any player from his favorite team; he flew combat
missions as an Air Force Radio Operator in China, Burma and India during World War II.
After the war, Lew graduated from Canisius with a major in business administration. He
dedicated his business career to the Federal Reserve Bank and Bethlehem Steel.
Although Lews been a fanatic Bills fan since 1963, its his family that can
make the Bills take a back seat.
Married 47 years to his wife, Sarah, Lew enjoys playing with his three grandchildren
who live nearby.
For family gatherings, the couple travels to Europe, Mexico, California and Louisiana.
Traveling plans, however, dont interfere with Lews passion. Hes coached his family well. They know theyll need to check the Bills schedule and work around it.
