Dan Lewis Jr.



Dan Lewis Jr., 66, of Seymour, passed away Thursday, April 16, 2015, at his home.

Born May 16, 1948, in Manchester, Kentucky, he was the son of Dan Lewis Sr. and Elsie Parker Lewis. On June 26, 1970, at Seymour First Baptist Church, he married Janet Hall.

Dan was a member of the U.S. Army and served his country with pride. Upon his return from service, he worked in maintenance at Arvin Industries for 33 years.

Once he retired, he was able to spend his time working in his garden, which he enjoyed. Tending the garden and working with his hands are skills that his friends and family will always remember him by. Much the same, he loved to fish and spend time outdoors. Most dear to him was the time he spent with his grandchildren, Kirstyn, Taylor and Brittany. Dan attended First Baptist Church.

Besides his wife, he is survived by his two children, Rob (Kristye) Lewis and Trish Lett; grandchildren, Kirstyn and Taylor Lewis and Brittany Lett; brothers, Kenny Lewis and Jerry Lewis; sisters, Geneva Lewis, Burnetta Trotter, Charlotte Keefer, Jean Post, Jeanetta Montgomery and Alma Boknecht.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by one brother, Ed Lewis; two sisters, Louise Hensley and Cecelia Steele; and one granddaughter, Brandy Lett.

The funeral service will be at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Voss Chapel in Seymour with the Rev. Larry Tingle officiating. Burial will follow at Riverview Cemetery with full military graveside rites conducted by Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1925, American Legion Post 89 and Korean and Vietnam Veterans, all of Seymour.

Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until time of service Saturday at the funeral home.
