After graduating, Ted held several jobs for major firms, but eventually returned to the area and opened his own business in Bogalusa. In 1997 Ted and Barbara retired to the home they built in Lewiston, which also served as a museum for high school memories and artifacts from other eras as well. He loved to share his collection and memories with friends, family, and strangers alike. In retirement, he enjoyed continuing to collect antiques, and enhance and maintain the beauty of the property that so many people in the community admired and enjoyed. He was a deacon at Lewiston Baptist Church, and loved his church community. He is preceded in death by his parents, Wendell Lewis and Bertha Stafford Lewis, and his son Joey. He is survived by his wife Barbara, his brother Don Lewis, son Brian and daughter-in-law Susan, and two grandsons, Anderson and Reed Lewis of Austin, TX.

I appreciated the time to get to know a little of Ted during a family visit to Lewiston several years ago. Part of the intent of that trip was to introduce our two adult daughters to Lewiston history. That visit resulted in my contributing to Ted's collection some antique elevator pushbutton stations (circa 1935) from the Emily Morgan Hotel in San Antonio TX. He was excited to receive them and add them to his display.
Anticipation was always that we could meet again and enjoy some time together as Lewis family, but sadly that did not happen. Condolences from my wife & I to Barbara & Brian.
With respect,
