Theodore Franklin “Ted” Lewis, age 53, passed away on April 2nd. He fought a hard 7 week battle with COVID, but is now at peace. Ted was born on July 29, 1967, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Julie, and his precious “Fur Baby” Annabelle.

He worked in the software Industry for over 30 years and has friends, peers and co-workers all over the world that have been shocked and saddened by his untimely death. When not at work, and most weekends, you would have found him on his beautiful motor yacht, which he insisted on calling “Julie Ann”. (That is when Julie really knew he loved her J). He spends this time with his dear friends in Boat House-2 at the Eisenhower Yacht Club. Ted will be laid to rest beside his much loved Uncle and namesake, Franklin D. Lewis. Julie and Uncle Frank’s wife, Gloria, will like to think they will be up to “no good”, as they enjoy the views of the Dallas skyline and wait for them all to be together again.

Along with Julie, Ted leaves behind his sister, who he loved so much, Jennifer Waine and her husband, Paul of Carrollton, TX; Parents, Jim Lewis and wife, Marge of Belen, NM; Bette Armstrong and husband, Jim of Carrollton, TX; Mother and Father-in-law, Jim and Ann Selig of Ft. Smith, AR; Brother and Sister-in-laws, Mitch and Cindy Jones of Compton, AR, and Doug and Michelle Morgan of Clarksville, AR; Nephews, Forrest and Hunter Waine of Carrollton, TX; and Niece, Lindsey Jones of Compton, AR; as well as many more uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. He will be missed forever.

Visitation will be at the Sparkman/Hillcrest Funeral Home, on Northwest Hwy from 4pm-7pm on Wednesday April 7th.

Graveside service will be at the Greenwood Cemetery, in Dallas, Texas, at 11:00 am on Thursday, April 8th. 3020 Oak Grove Ave., Dallas, TX, 75204.

Living in Denver, I only have the opportunity to be at the boat house 3-4 times per year. And every time I walked down the boat ramp I always looked for Ted. He was always the first person to greet anyone and everyone at Boathouse 2 with a smile and a sincere welcome. Throughout the long weekends I enjoyed all of our conversations over coffees and beers. Ted was a wealth of knowledge and had incredible insight into pretty much anything and everything. Somehow I always left our chats feeling a tad better and a great bit smarter. I'm going to miss you buddy!!

I was lucky enough to work with Ted during my time at RightScale. He was a larger-than-life figure when I joined the company and I'll never forget the first time he spoke to my entry-level team about technology. After a single in-person meeting with Ted, I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in tech sales - but more importantly, I wanted to model my career after Ted. I think he leaves that impression with most people he meets, the “what would Ted do?” mentality.

Thank you, Ted. For mentoring me professionally and personally, even long after our careers parted ways. For teaching me what it means to be an exceptional sales rep and an even better human.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Lewis family.

Ted,
You taught me a lot. You made me see things I didn't see, understand what I'd never thought of. I admired your relaxed attitude towards things and your humor. You'll always remain in my fondest memories. The world is a poorer place without you.

Love ya, bro!

Ted, I just want to say thanks for everything you did for me when I was younger. Even if you didn't see it right away you truly helped shaped me into the man I am today. I was a kid that thought I new everything and you were patient and told me of things to do that would help me out later in life (financially and in my personal life). I truly regret allowing time to go by without hanging out. I truly thought we would have more time together. I know our family will happy to see you in heaven especially since you have always been a family favorite. We love and miss you so very much! Kevin Franklin Lewis

Barbara and I are greatly saddened by your going home to The Lord so soon in life. We know you are no longer suffering and our Lord and Savior is comforting you as we speak, but we are going to miss you so much. I know you will always get a chuckle when you think of the bottle rocket you almost got me with many years ago. We will always love and miss you and will miss that smile and wonderful sense of humor. We look forward to the day when we will all be together again.

It was a privilege to be Ted’s friend and working with him at Integrated Systems.
Ted’s positive attitude and his charisma filled a room with a unique ability to make everybody feel comfortable. He was a creative and strategic business guy and always found ways to create win-win situations for everyone.
You couldn’t help but love Ted. He worked hard and played hard.

Julie, we were blessed to be part of your lives.

RIP buddy -

We love you Julie and you will forever be surrounded by friends.

Ted and I have been and are friends. We’ve had a lot of fun together along with Julie and Shannon. Vacations, cruises, martini bar, private cabanas, ziplining, pre-cruising in South Beach, Coco Loco, Punta Mita. At the lake at Cedar Mills, Eisenhower State Park, the Mariah, What Recession, Julie Ann, day and night cruises, just chillin. Our pets Gretchen, Sable, Peanut and Dottie. At homes, playing shuffleboard til wee hours in the morning, Halloween parties, in a pool. Yep, we’ve had a lot of fun. I’m glad we became friends.
