Jim Lewis

Jimmy (Jim) H. Lewis, born in Dunlap, Tennessee on September 5, 1935, passed away at the age of 81 at his home in Largo, Florida on November 15, 2016. He grew up in Dunlap, graduated from Sequatchie County High School, served as a young man in the U.S. Army and lived most of his adult life in the Elizabethton, Tennessee area, then moved to Florida in his elder years. By occupation, he was an entrepreneur. He wanted his friends to remember the good times they had with him. The most often heard words used to describe him are “he had a big heart” and “he loved to help people.” God bless all who knew him. He was preceded in death by the mother of his children, Jewell Johnson Lewis; father, Dewey George Lewis; mother, Lillie Kerley Lewis; and his brother, William (Bill) Hoyt Lewis, all of Dunlap. He was also preceded in death by his latter wife, Sondra Cooke Lewis, originally of Elizabethton, Tennessee. He is survived by his stepson, Terry Turner; daughter, Denise (Brian) Huffine; his son, Randy (Darlene) Lewis; nine grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

    If this is the Jim Lewis who owned a nursing home here in Elizabethton then I remember him well. He was so good to my mom who owned a house next to a house he owned. I have been wondering what happened to him. I knew he married and moved to Florida and I lost contact with him and his wife. Jim was kind hearted and someone good to know. May God still be with the family.
