Obituary for Lawrence Lewis Sr.

Lawrence  Lewis Sr.
Lawrence Keith Lewis
May 1, 1957- August 16, 2017

It is with great sadness that the family and soul mate (Linda M. Stevens)
of Lawrence Keith Lewis Sr., age 60, of Toledo, announce his passing on August 16, 2017. Although our hearts are saddened, we rejoice and praise God for the life of Lawrence K. Lewis.

Lawrence, affectionately known to friends as Larry and more affectionately known to his adopted family (The Stevens Family) as Uncle Boo, was born to the union of Grundy and Beverly Lewis on May 1, 1957. He was predeceased by both of his parents, grandparents, and one aunt. Larry accepted Christ as his savior and was baptized at an early age.

Lawrence graduated from DeVilbiss High School in 1975. While attending DeVilbiss, he played on the varsity basketball team. He was an avid fan of many sports, well into his adult life. Larry loved politics. He watched the news and read the news paper and editorials on a daily basis to stay informed about world news. He was a devoted democrat and exercised his right to vote. His work career included EOPA, Manufactures Enameling Corporation and later the Jeep Corporation. In the year 2000 Larry moved to Cleveland, OH, for a short while and was employed for the Morris Funeral Chapel. After returning to Toledo, Lawrence worked for Fisher Used Tires until his health failed, retiring in November 2016. Larry was a handy man and enjoyed mowing lawns.

Larry re-dedicated his life to Christ in February 2017 and was lead in the sinners prayer by his adopted sister, Minister Onevia Allen.

On Sunday May 21, 2017, Larry, along with his adopted family sang on Family and Friends Day at The Solomon Temple Baptist Church. The song he helped to sing was titled " Trouble in My Way".

Lawrence will always be remembered for his beautiful, infectious smile, love and the fond relationships he had with family and friends throughout his community.

Lawrence leaves to cherish his memory, his soul mate of 23 years, Ms. Linda M. Stevens.
