He loved to drive his car, wearing baseball caps, playing with dogs, and giving them too many treats. He especially enjoyed his time at Daily Bread. He loved football, always showed excitement buying birthday and Christmas gifts for his mom, nephews, and niece who he adored. He loved them so much! Lewis was outgoing and loved people. He had a great sense of humor and loved to joke. It was a great joy for him to offer rides to his friends for appointments, work, or the store. He will be missed dearly by his family, who are so thankful he’s no longer in pain and now enjoying his time with God.A celebration of Lewis’ life will be conducted at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 12, 2023, Tharp Funeral Home, 220 Breezewood Drive, Lynchburg, Va.
