He was born March 15, 1929, the first born and son of Eldred Thomas and Nora Allan Forbes. He was a loving brother to his two sisters; they lived in Clearfield until they moved to the family farm in East Layton.

Lewis was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as Ward Clerk to three bishops in the Layton 3rd Ward. He had a testimony of the truthfulness to the gospel. The family appreciated the loving service given to them by the Cherry Lane Ward.
Lewis met his bride Bessie E. Eastman, of 52 years, on a blind date. They were married on November 10, 1953. They were later sealed for time and all eternity April 11, 1962, in the Salt Lake City Temple. From this union they had six children.

A grateful thanks to Dr. Roark Neville, his nurse Linda and the loving care from all the staff at Heritage Park Nursing Home.
Dad left us with many wonderful character traits, he taught us to love and respect our country, his constant display of the flag adorned our front yard. His love and care of his land taught us hard work really does pay off. He taught us Christ-like love by always doing unto others as you would have them do and to Love one another, as well as the tender display of love and devotion to our mom.
Dad, you will be missed, your absence is a great void in our lives; we find the comfort in knowing that when we see your beautiful smile again, you will walk to us pain free.
