How glad I am that I got to see Lewis at our reunion 19 years ago.  He was a nice  person.

My dear friend and client ,Lewis Lane, passed away on 11/25/2005 in a tragic house fire at his family home on Parkway Ave. in the Enderly Park community. Lewis and I were classmates all through elementary and high school. We all remember he was quite a musician at Harding, as he excelled in playing the trombone, tuba, and saxaphone. His greatest pride was being an outstanding drum-major for the Harding band. Upon graduating from Harding, Lewis and I worked together at Thomas & Howard Co. and  some years later he became an independent  long haul truck driver and my client. He was truly a dear personal friend for most of my life and one I'll never forget.

Who doesn't remember our HHS tall, dark, handsome, and VERY musically talented HHS drum major??  Lewis was a good guy, and I was glad to cross paths with him at our 20th in 1981.  Make you a wager that he's an active participant in that 'Great Band' in the sky.  Lewis, you are missed.

Lewis was a good friend in high school.  Unfortunately we lost contact after graduation.  Lois and I were not in town when Lewis was killed in the fire at his mother's home.  We were shocked when we found out about that through this site.

One of the things of a personal nature that I remember about Lewis was that he nicknamed me "Henry".  I don't know why but he always called me Henry and it caught on with several other people.

Another personal memory was once when Lois and I were double dating with Lewis and Sandra Thompson.  It was late one weekend night and we were in Lewis' car, a relatively new Ford, as I recall.  Freedom Drive was not too busy after 11:00 pm in those days and that downhill stretch going back toward town beckoned Lewis to see if he could get the car up to 100 mph. 

 He did.  We didn't get a ticket and we didn't kill ourselves or anybody else.  However, it did scare the bejesus out of Lois and me and we have never forgotten that night with our good friend Lewis.

Lewis, Lois and I will be thinking about you as we celebrate our 50th reunion with tales of our crazy teen years and fond memories of all.
