I met this great man when I was 26 at Bank Of America. He Inspired me to fly like an eagle, He dared me to find out exactly what wanted. I am in a change of business and a little lost so I decided to google him. Looking for direction and inspiration from him, I came across his obituary. Mr. Lewis Timberlake is still just as Inspiring in life and IN death. Your words live in me. I remember you when I was 26 and I remember you 7 years later. God bless you Sir. I will find a way or make one! Rest easy

I know this is late but I was looking up Lewis and saw that he passed. I use a quote of his when I talk to audiences.

I've just now discovered this obituary (during one of my Google searches checking up on Mr. Timberlake). He lived like few people know how, with a positive attitude and a great understanding for everyone he met. My time working for Mr. Timberlake was brief, but memorable. He was an inspiration, a mentor, and in many ways like a grandfather I never had. Because of this, I am very sad to know he has passed. I don't personally know a man still alive who loved his family more. I remember something his daughter once said, which I heard via Georgia Ann and will paraphrase: Dad was gone a lot, but then he was still always there for us. What a testament. This is how I remember him. I have spent the greater part of the last hour looking at the slideshow...those are wonderful pictures. Much love to the Timberlake family.

Lewis touched my life in 1982 at a workshop he led in Lexington, KY. He gave me an idea that helped change the life of one of my children. I will always be grateful.
He continued to send me "Letters from Lewis" after my promotion and move to Chicago.
He made a difference in many lives. A great legacy.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Lewis' passing. As a young executive at MBNA he made a big impact on me. I still have my "Round to it" coin! I stopped by the web site today to order some copies of Born to Win and found some used on Amazon. I now run the sales force for my company and two partner companies. Amazing how the first book I want to teach is Lewis'. I was in three separate events with him, one of which my organization sponsored. I will never forget how genuine he was and what he brought to me and my people.

May his soul rest in peace. I feel sorry I could never meet you personally. I love your book BORN TO WIN.

I first heard Lewis in 1982 on a cassette tape program. He has been part of my life value system since then. Losing both Zig and Lewis these last few months has been a great loss to our world.

I first heard Mister Timberlake speak at Texas Boys State in June of 2008. One of the most impressionable things he ever said and that I still remember to this day is that "God doesn't give us dreams just to taunt us." It was his exceptional conviction and his talent for tact that inspired me to more rigorously pursue the dreams God has given to me. I am saddened by news of his passing, but I am honored to have been able to receive some of the legacy he left behind. I only regreat that I was never able to write to him and say what a difference his role had in my life. But I know without a doubt that heaven is a brighter place with him in it - just as the world I know was made brighter through the words he said and things he did. -MH

Just as the previous person, I too was a Bank of America/MBNA employee who was graced by one of his seminars. It was great and inspirational. I was going to the website to share his thoughts and vision with a coworker when I discovered the news.

Thank you for everything. May his family be comforted that he has helped so many and made such a large impact on people.
