OBITUARY

James William Lewis

December 26, 1988October 28, 2019

James William Lewis was born on Monday, December 26th, 1988 in Los Alamitos, California to his father, Thomas H. Lewis and mother, Kimberly J. Brockman.

James was the most energetic, funniest, and the happiest child growing up. If anyone was down, he’d be the one to pick them up. If his mother was sad, he’d be the one to make her laugh and cheer her up when no one else could. He’d keep his family in good spirits with his facial expressions weird noises and vocal impressions; always the family comedian. He was one of those people that when he walked into a room you knew it was James because he'd go flying through the door full of energy or have some hilarious greeting. He loved every one of his family members and friends individually and never once judged anyone for their shortcomings. Instead, he would remind them that they were better than what they were going through. James was a natural in almost everything he put his mind to. It didn't matter what it was whether it was football, basketball, boxing, skateboarding or being a comedian, he was just good, and everyone around him was in awe of his talent and his potential. James proudly served our country in the US Army from 2007 to 2011, receiving numerous medals and awards thought out his service. He bravely served in Iraq in 2010.

On Monday, October 28th, 2019 James passed away in Anaheim, California

James will truly be missed by all who knew him and his sense of humor, smile and kind heart will be remembered forever.

My favorite memory of you will always be when we graduated 8th grade. Mikhail was given a camera for his birthday or some reason I don't remember but I remember Ramiro was there too lol. We were walking down Orangewood heading towards 9th Street. We were no longer Lake Dragons. We were about to be Argos. Anyway you decided to cross the street from cirkle k to the other side of Orangewood. The whole time Mikhail was recording and you decided to join oncoming traffic by pulling out your buttcheek, you had to moon traffic. We all laughed so hard we pee'd our pants. At least I did. You always kept us laughing. And I'll always remember that obnoxious laugh too. Love you brother.
