Billy Frank "Bill" Lewis, of Shreveport, Louisiana, passed away peacefully on the morning of March 15, 2009, at the age of 74 after a valiant effort to overcome the effects of cancer. We take solace, but shall miss his endless enthusiasm, giving guidance, and his genuine love of life! Bill was a truly kind person; what a privilege and blessing to have known one of God's special human gifts. His Christian faith helped him through many difficult times.
Bill was born December 22, 1934, in Marthaville, Louisiana, to the late Alvin and Lillie Lewis. He proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1957 to 1963. After an honorable discharge, he was a welder by trade, working for Mid-Continent Steel and Reilly Beaird. He went on to retire as foreman for the Panola County Road and Bridge.
Bill is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Carolyn, his daughter, Deborah McGraw, grandson, Joshua McGraw, sisters, Louetta Pearson (Boyce) and Mary Harris and special friend Willie Perkins. He is further survived by a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Curtis Lewis, brothers C.D. Lewis and infant brothers Elbert and Herbert Lewis, and sister, Emma Jean Driggers.
Funeral services for Bill Lewis were held on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 2 p.m. at Centuries Memorial Funeral Home and Cemetery, 8801 Mansfield Rd., Shreveport, Louisiana. Dr. T. Floyd Davis, Jr. of Woodridge Baptist Church, Shreveport, officiated. Burial follow in Centuries Memorial Cemetery.
Honoring Bill as pallbearers were David Axe, Jimmy Boyd, Mike Lynch, Jay McClelland, Willie Perkins and Wayne Weir. Honorary pallbearers were Charles Jacobs, Jack Kirkpatrick, Cole Roberts, C. C. Sanders, Jimmy Shelton, Pat Watson and Jim White.
The family wishes to express their deepest gratitude to Dr. Joyce Feagin for her competence and compassion; and to Doctors Amit Ahuja, Charles Byrd, Phillip Rozeman and Anthony Stuart for their professional and loving care, the staff of Willis-Knighton Cancer Center, Willis-Knighton North Hospital Floor 4-E Staff and a special thank you to Odyssey Hospice.
