The comic legend and his wife, SanDee "Sam" Lewis, moved into the house in March 1983, about one month after they tied the knot.
“This house was filled with so many memories of friends and celebrities, plus the fact of raising our daughter, Danielle, in this house,” said Sam, a former dancer who had a part in Lewis’ film "Hardly Working."
“I’m sure my husband’s memory will forever be associated with this house. Upon returning from every trip or tour the first words out of his mouth when he arrived home were, ‘I love my home.’"
Lewis was previously married to Patti Palmer on October 3, 1944. The two were divorced in September 1980.
From the late '40s to the mid-'60s, Lewis was an unprecedented force in American popular culture. He inspired many comedians, comedy writers, performers, and filmmakers, according to the New York Times.
Lewis once revealed in a 2011 documentary that he had his first heart attack at age 34 while filming "Cinderfella" in 1960. He had another heart attack in December 1982.
He was hospitalized at a Las Vegas hospital for a urinary tract infection in June 2017.
On August 20, 2017, Lewis, who was nicknamed the "King of Comedy," passed away due to end-stage cardiac disease and peripheral artery disease. He was 91 years old.
In his will, he left his estate to his second wife, Sam, and their daughter.
After Lewis' death, actor and comedian Jeffrey Tambor wrote, “You invented the whole thing. Thank you doesn’t even get close.”
