Lewis was a great father, friend, and hard working man. I will always remember the good times he had during the times he spent with my dad GW Bass and me on the drag strip. I will take this time to be happy to remember the enjoy he brought to life and at the breakfast table.
RIP Lewis

With love

As many of you know Lewis was my sister Nancy’s Father in Law, however for the last 20 years since Nancy & Kenny have been together I have been an adopted daughter in law to the Turners. I love Linda & Lewis like they are my parents!
Lewis had even made my husband Michael an honorary member of the breakfast club whenever we were in Lynchburg . The photo was from 2015 at our annual family Dec. 26th tradition.

I didnt get to see Uncle Lewis all the time, but when I did we always shared a laugh together. He loved giving me a hard time and always asked if I needed anything. I will miss him dearly. I found a picture of him at Nanas from some years back and I wanted to share it. Sending thoughts and prayers to the whole family at this difficult time. Take care and God bless..
