OBITUARY

Dieter "Dan" Daniel Lewin

March 24, 1936November 19, 2019

Dieter Daniel Lewin, 83, of Hot Springs, passed on to be with the Lord peacefully in his bed on November 19th, 2019. Dan was born March 24th, 1936 in Schloppe, Germany, just before the start of World War II. He came to the U.S. with his mother after barely surviving the holocaust where he tragically lost most of his extended family.

Dan enlisted in the Air Force and become a photographer, serving for 20 years. This service included a tour in Korea and two in Vietnam. Dan retired from the Air Force to Hot Springs where he ran several photo businesses with his wife of 58 years, Mary, who preceded him in death in 2013.

Dan is survived by his eldest son Roger, twins Trevor & Tracy; his daughter-in-law Lynda; son-in-law Bryan; granddaughters Misty (Aaron) Burroughs and Merry (Jason) Stachey; and great grandkids Chase, Blake, Logan, Kaitlyn, Andrew and Adam.

Dan and Mary always welcomed people into their home, hosting many foreign exchange students and caring for others who had been cast out or needed help.

Dan was a faithful member of Trinity Church. He was passionate about teaching the Bible and involved in several ministries including the food pantry.A faithful member of the Gideons, Dan helped distribute thousands of Bibles.

Although his early life was filled with destruction and brutality, he lived as an overcomer. Once a critic of faith in God, he was transformed by supernatural intervention as he explains in his autobiography. www.hallelujahstory.com

Dan will be remembered for his unique sense of humor, unashamed honesty, outspokenness and his positive outlook on life. He will be missed by many.

Visitation is at Trinity Church, 670 Panama St. in Hot Springs, Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019, at 2 p.m. and a service to honor his life at 2:30 p.m. All are welcome.

In lieu of flowers, Dan would appreciate a gift to the Gideons.

Dan will greatly be missed. I always enjoyed his wry sense of humor, the love he shared with Mary was a model for us all, and the victory they share with Jesus now has got to be dynamite! God bless his family.

Dan was a fine man that always treated us as family. He supported the church food pantry many years with food collections and encouraging vendors to support the food pantry as well. He was loved and respected. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
