Admin: Bear River High School basketball coach Ralph Lewis dies

The cause and timing of Lewis’ death were not stated in the message.
“Ralph has been a member of the Bear River family as a campus supervisor for three years and longer as a coach and mentor for our students,” Roberts stated in email and voicemail messages. “He was a valued member of the Bear River staff, as well as our community, and built strong relationships with students and staff alike. He will be dearly missed.”
