CHILLICOTHE: Vernon M. Lewis, 82, of Chillicothe, known to many of his friends as Marshall, was born February 10, 1932, in Springfield, KY to Nathaniel and Roda (Marshall) Lewis, as one of seven children.
In 1953, Marshall met and married his devoted wife of 61 years, Mary B. (Hayden) Lewis. In 1964, Marshall moved his family to Chillicothe, OH, where he worked and managed two horse farms for several years. After his employer passed away, he worked at General Electric and later worked for and retired from Kenworth Truck Co.
Marshall was a faithful member of Quinn Chapel Church for several years and served as an usher there and was a frequent visitor to St. Mary Church.
Marshall is survived by his lovely and dedicated wife, Mary; their children: James Vernon Lewis, Karl Michael Lewis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Teresa Ann Lewis, David Wayne Lewis, Kathy Jane Bell, Joseph William Lewis and Mark Allen Lewis; 9 grandchildren; and 3 great-grandchildren. We loved him for his jovial and joking manner and we will miss him greatly.
