His parents were Robert and Martha Justice. The family moved to Charlotte from Mooresville, NC at a very early age where he lived all of his life.

He was a machinist mate 3rd class. Lewis was honorably discharged in 1964. After leaving the Navy, he very much enjoyed attending the ship reunions of the John W.

He was a 32nd Degree Mason and belonged to the Scottish Rite and a member of the Shrine. Lewis loved to fish and hunt with friends. One of his greatest pleasures was maintaining contact with his many good friends. He adored his grandson, Reid and was blessed to see his month old granddaughter, Abby after her recent birth.

...and one final post...
That no-fail recipe for a New Year!

RECIPE FOR A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Take twelve whole months.
Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness,
hate, and jealousy.
Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.
Now cut each month into twenty-eight, thirty, or thirty-one different parts,
but don't make up the whole batch at once.
Prepare it one day at a time out of these ingredients.
Mix well into each day one part of faith,
one part of patience, one part of courage,
and one part of work.
Add to each day one part of hope,
faithfulness, generosity, and kindness.
Blend with one part prayer, one part meditation,
and one good deed.
Season the whole with a dash of good spirits,
a sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play,
and a cupful of good humor.
Pour all of this into a vessel of love.
Cook thoroughly over radiant joy,
garnish with a smile,
and serve with quietness, unselfishness,
and cheerfulness.
You're bound to have a happy new year.
