Having the good fortune to have been born into a family of very great wealth, Lewis was was raised at #10 Westminster Place, a secluded private neighborhood in the central city where only palatial mansions could be built. His father was one of the most important men in St. Louis; one who could, with genteel modesty, refer to himself as a capitalist.

Young Lewis inherited the home at his father's death in 1914 and sold it in 1920. The couple built fine home at 5577 Lindell Blvd, across the street from lovely Forest Park, where the World's Fair of 1904 had been held.

Lewis came to be president of the United Wood Heel Company. Some of his products were thoughtfully innovative; especially for shoes that were worn for farming and ranching. He sold to the Samuels Shoe Company in 1943. He was also a grain broker.

His first marriage was to Elizabeth Overton of Memphis. They were married in June of 1916. Their children were James Overton Dozier, Lewis David Dozier III, and Marya O'Fallon Dozier. The couple divorced 8 September 1933 in Clayton, Missouri. Elizabeth was awarded custody of their three children. In less than a month she became the wife of August A "Gussie" Busch who soon became president of the Anheuser Busch Brewery.

He was a member of the St. Louis Country Club and a former president of the Racquet Club. At the time of his death, he made his home at his Ladue estate, #38 Log Cabin Lane.
