Lewis is survived by his wife Marla, son Bill (Jody) and six grandkids: Brianna, Gabriella, Levi, Sam, Emily and Hannah; sisters: Sandy Ott, Georgia Bement, Wanda Edwards and one brother Jim. And many nieces and nephews that he held close to his heart. Lewis never met a person he didn’t consider a friend and all the kids he helped with in Little League baseball.
