Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by five brothers: Otha, John, Bill, Hugh and Cleve Lewis; five sisters: Gladys Seivers, Lottie Waggoner, Lois Irene Lewis, Hattie Cheek and Nina Torres. He is survived by his wife, Helen; one son, Kenneth Sherman Lewis and wife, Jo; three grandchildren: Heather Norman (Lee), Donna Clayton (Steve), Donny Lowery; great-granddaughter, Savannah Norman; two sisters: Mozelle Sheffield and Latisha Tripp and a host of nieces and nephews he dearly loved.
