Obituary for Walter R. Lewis

Walter R. Lewis, 78 of Golden, CO, passed away from a stroke on Wednesday, January 3, 2018, at Lutheran Medical Center.

Walt was the son of the late Norma B. and Walter W. Lewis born on August 12, 1939, in Atwood, KS. He graduated from South High School and married Janice L. Chapman in 1959. They had three children who brought them much happiness and pride.

He owned a magazine subscription agency and was a fantastic salesman and entrepreneur and was still working part time. He was known in his younger years as a skilled pool player. He became an avid golfer, belonging to Hyland Hills Men's Club and Lake Arbor Men’s Golf Club. It was quite a loss for him when his failing eyesight prevented him from playing. He enjoyed dog and horse racing and trips to the casinos. He doted on his cats over the years, currently Billy, and they brought him much joy. Old movies and music were also a hobby.

He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Janice, and their children Walter R. Lewis Jr., Susan L. Hunt (Stephen), and Paul W. Lewis (Danielle); one sister, Carolyn J. Dellah (Abdellatif); eight wonderful grandchildren: Andrea, Rachel, Margaret, and Avarie Hunt; Matthew, Zachary and Tyler Lewis; and Courtney Lewis Hawkins; and nephews Shan and Aaron Dellah and niece Nayla Dellah.

Walt was a wonderful person and his death has left an unbelievable void in our lives. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Dumb Friends League or to Autism Speaks.
