In Loving Memory

Lou Lewis

April 9, 1938 - October 4, 2019

Tribute

Clinton Lewis, “Lou” to his friends, was born in the mountains near Boone, NC on April 4, 1938, and left this earth on October 4, 2019 after a battle with Leukemia.  He had family and friends that stretched form Alabama to the Carolina mountains.  He was a capable carpenter who built his own home and loved to garden and go fishing.

Lou enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1958 and proudly served our country in Okinawa until his honorable discharge in 1964.  Upon his return, he started a career as an AC and refrigeration repairman, but his greatest lifelong passion was trading in antiques and unique items.  He was fondly referred to by his friends and family as a collector of all things.  Lou was also a prankster and was well known for pulling gags that just might include a rubber finger or an artificial leg.

Lou is survived by his daughter, Renee; his son, Mike; his granddaughter Jacqui; his devoted companion, Bo Diddley; as well as many friends.

Services for Lou will be held at Hughes Funeral Home, 7951 American Way, Daphne, AL, on Friday, October 11, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

Expressions of condolence for the family may be made at www.hughesfh.com.  Hughes Funeral Home is assisting the family.

    Renee,I am so sorry to hear of Lou’s passing. I’ll keep your family in my prayers. I was just thinking about ya’ll a few weeks ago and wondering where y’all had gotten off to. Don’t know if you remember me but my wife Annette and I lived next door to ya’ll on Gimon circle back in the early 70s. She passed away in 2015.

    Clinton “Lou” has been and will be missed… everyone here at the auction house enjoyed seeing him and Bo Diddley. He was a good friend and always enjoyed conversation w him and his jokes.
