His entire family was killed on Sunday, September 16, 1928 by a train. They were going to pick up his neice, Myrtle Lewis and her children. However, something went wrong. His car with his entire family in it was hit by a train. There was a gruesome account in the Lebo Enterprise (which is reproduced on his ancestry page). It was a huge loss to the Lewis family.
