Lewis graduated from Garrard County High School in 1969 and graduated from Kentucky College of Business in 1977 with a Business Administration Degree. He then started his journey with IBM shortly after and worked his way up different roles in management. He dedicated over 35 years of work with IBM.
Lewis got married to his wife, Joice, in October of 1976. Lewis served actively in Central Church of God for over 20 years, ushering almost every Sunday. He was a lifelong Kentucky Wildcats fan, lover of supreme pizza, lasagna, and a good cup of coffee.. Every time it was sunny outside, you could find Lewis outside messing in the yard or washing the cars. After the day was over, he had “his recliner” watching episodes of Family Feud, Madam Secretary or a “good ole” Western or War Movie.

We want to express our appreciation for all the love, support, and prayers we’ve received.
