Name: Darrel Lewis
Birthplace: Moncton, New Brunswick. I grew up on a dairy farm near Salisbury, NB.
What type of work have you done?
I trained as a computer programmer and as an Electronic Technologist. I retired from Enmax Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The City of Calgary, in 2012. Enmax is a utility company that generates and distributes electricity, natural gas, and renewable energy to customers in Alberta. I worked as an Electronics Engineering Technologist with Enmax for 25 years and, before that, with Dresser Industries for 17 years.
How would you identify yourself in terms of religion/spirituality?
What are some of your reasons for joining?
My wife, Wendy, and I were members of CFI, for years, in Calgary. When we moved to West Kelowna, we wanted to join the local group to engage with similarly-minded people.
What were some of the defining moments that led you to the point where you are now, in a religious/spiritual sense?
I was raised in a very strict Baptist family surrounded by religious relatives on both sides. I had always questioned their beliefs and thought that the whole religion business had to be a fairy tale. I have three siblings; of the four of us, three are atheist.
