Charles A. Lewis


Charles A. Lewis, age 91. Sunrise January 8, 1928 and Sunset May 27, 2019.
Charles A. Lewis born into a big family and was the last of his siblings to join our Lord Heavenly Father.

Charles Lewis accomplished many things in his life span from joining the Army, served in the Korean War and also built bridges. His biggest accomplishment was raising children to be the best they could. He specifically raised one child from the age of 2, Brandon Jackson. Their bond grew as father and son; Bone Head and Head Buster. The two of them would do anything for each other. They took care of each other in their time of need. There was no better bond. The laughs we used to have with him raising his fist and saying, “This is my Africa Soup Bone”. Any body that KNEW him or ever met him and needed help, you could always ask and if he had it to give, it was yours.

Charles A. Lewis is loved by everyone who knew him. He was the most caring, kind hearted, forgiving person anyone would ever meet. May he Rest In Paradise.

Charles is preceded in death by his parents, Alberta Levina Burnett and Joe Thefes Lewis; beloved wife, Ada L. Lewis; sisters, Marie, Helen, Carolyn, Grace, and Teena; brothers, John, James Lewis; daughter, Janet Cain; and grandkids, Leonard Cain Jr., Kelly M. Jackson.

He leaves to mourn his memory, grandchildren from Janet Cain, Shannon, Velma, David, and Dave (Marlo); daughters with their children, Pamala M. Jackson (Charles O’Bannon), Brandon L. Jackson (son/grandson), Ada K. (Darryl) Carter, Dawn L. Wallace O’Bannon & daughter Kel’Liyah, Renne R. Jackson Jr., Pamala M. Jackson, Kimberly M. Jackson-Sullivan, Aime N. Jackson, Lorraine Wallace, and Lelia Saunder, Robin Johnson, Ora Borden-Moore; and other family members and friends.

    To the Lewis family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) It is not God’s purpose originally for mankind to grow old, get sick and die. To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible study lessons featured and more. Love, Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson
