Walter T. Lewis, Jr. peacefully transitioned on to eternal rest on Thursday, December 20, 2012. He was born in Greenville, Mississippi on April 20, 1940 and was the only beloved son of the late Mrs. Luratha Lewis and Mr. Walter T. Lewis, Sr.
From his incredible experience as a PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER in Oguta, Nigeria to his world travels to him single handedly raising his daughter from the age of seven to his stellar 32 years of Federal service to his dedication to the DC and Prince George's County, MD educational systems as a teacher and substitute teacher -just to name a few- Walter T. Lewis, Jr. lived and enjoyed a very blessed and fulfilled life.
Walter is survived by his daughter, Karen Lewis Smith; three sisters, five nieces, five nephews; and a host of relatives and close friends.
The family will receive guests for a viewing and memorial service on Saturday, December 29, 2012, at Pope Funeral Home, 5538 Marlboro Pike, Forestville, MD. The viewing begins at 9 a.m.; memorial service at 10 a.m.
