Robert M. Lewis

June 16, 1925 — October 14, 2007

Mr. Robert M. "Bob" Lewis, age 82, of Fountain City, passed away at 4:07 a.m. on Sunday, October 14, at Pinehurst Village in Centerville.

Born June 16, 1925 in Fountain City, he was the son of Harry E., Sr. and Ada Burden Lewis, both of whom preceded him in death. He was a graduate of Fountain City High School and served in the US Army at the close of World War Two. Bob returned home to take a job at the International Harvester Foundry. He later went to work in the foundry at Dana Corporation in Richmond, retiring in 1995 after 36 years of service. Bob enjoyed making fudge for his family and friends. He also enjoyed riding around in his car, often chauffeuring others, and helping people in any way he could. He was a member of the American Legion.

Bob will be missed by his wife, the former June Fackson, of Fountain City; his daughter, Cheryl Thomas, of Fort Worth, Texas; grandchildren, his brother-in-law, Bill Routt, of Fountain City; sister-in-law, Kay Lewis, of Fountain City; as well as several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his brother, Harry E. "Junior" Lewis; sisters, Frances Shoemaker, Christine Routt, Betty Burden and brothers-in-law Carl Shoemaker and James Burden.

A graveside ceremony will be conducted by Pastor David Anderson at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 17, at the Willow Grove Cemetery. In keeping with Bob's wishes, there will be no public calling.
