Lewis' Story

 

as told by a family friend

 

Lewis passed away on 10/6/03. He enjoyed all of the cards and found it hard to believe that so many people cared about someone they had never met.

 

Lewis just had heart surgery and was just released from the hospital again. The doctors have told his wife that nothing else can be done and that his kidneys and liver are slowly closing down. He has not been told about it.

Lewis was born in middle Georgia, outside Eatonton in 1923, the youngest of 12 children. There were 7 boys and 4 girls including one that died at birth. He has one brother who is still alive and lives in Eatonton today. He has been married to his wife Sallie for 61 years. They moved to Jacksonville Florida in 1943 when he got a job with the old Seaboard Railroad. Later it was known as Seaboard Coastline Railroad and is now CSX. He retired after 43 years as a sheet metal worker. They have 2 daughters and one son. They lost one son who drowned in 1987. They also have 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Lewis had open heart surgery in 1985. Several years ago his health started to go down and he has been in and out of the hospital since that time. This last time he was released, the doctors said nothing else could be done as his organs are slowly closing down. He has not been told of his condition. He loves caps and before he got so ill, and he loved auto racing.

 

Lewis likes ball caps of all kinds and is usually wearing one. Why don't we all send him one of our hometown baseball teams?!
