Lamar was born in Bossier City, LA to Clarence A. Lewis and Glennie Gandy Lewis. He was the youngest of seven children. He attended Bossier High School and in January, 1956 he joined the U.S.A.F. and served his country. He was an avid supporter of his LSU football team. He enjoyed many careers in his life ranging from a professional Trainer of Tennessee Walking Horses to a route salesman with United Bumper.

To know our Uncle Bubba was to love him. He always had a quick comeback with his keen wit and sense of humor. Mostly, he was a kind and gentle soul who never met a stranger. He loved his God first, his country, and he cherished his family.

Serving him as pallbearers are nephews; C.A. “Jackie” Lewis, III, Dennis Ross, great nephews; Jeffery and Tyler Ross and Cody Lewis; and best friend, Sammy Hunter. Serving as Honorary pallbearers are nephews Rick and Mark Faries.

Heartfelt appreciation to his doctors and friends of many years, Dr. Seborn Woods and Dr. Michael Moore. A special thanks to Dr. Jason Nelson who ministered to him in the last weeks of his life; for his kindnesses and gentleness to our loved one in such a caring and gracious manner. We would also like to thank his special friends, Sammy and Bonnie Hunter and Steve and Belinda Nicholson for the same kindness and caring.

Suggested memorial donations to Saint Jude’s Hospital for Children, The American Cancer Society , or The Wounded Warrior Project. He would want us to encourage everyone he knew to seek his Lord and Saviour Jesus for a peace that passes all understanding. He would also encourage to Pay It Forward with a kind gesture or encouraging word to everyone you encounter.
