Ronald L. Lewis

January 23, 1949 - September 12, 2020

Ronald L. Lewis of Browns Cove, Va., passed away at his home on Saturday September 12, 2020. Ronald was preceded in death by his mother, Florence Lewis; and sisters, Debbie Frazier and Mary Davis.

He is survived by his loving wife, Susan Lewis; one son, Calvin Lewis; sister, Anna Sasser, and a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Ronnie had many things that brought joy to his life. He and his wife both enjoyed gardening and were quite good at it. They also raised and hatched their own chickens. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, driving dump trucks, and was employed with Allied Concrete for 28 years, where he operated a cement mixer.

But, most of all I'd have to say, his son brought him the most joy. He talked about him constantly. Mostly about his accomplishments with his horse Dollywood. Last, but not least Midnight, the mysterious black cat that appeared out of no where or so that's how the story goes, only Ronnie knows the real story.

Ronnie will be cremated, however the family is not planning on having a service at this time.

The family would like to thank everyone for their calls, emails, and meals!

Missy and I will miss Uncle Ronnie very much. He was a wonderful uncle and our favorite uncle. I will miss his weekly phone calls to check in with all the events going on in Wisconsin. Missy and I have talked about the fun times we had with Uncle Ronnie and how he would laugh and tell us stories. I can still hear his voice and laughter. We will remember all the good times and laughter and will keep his memory alive by telling our grandchildren stories about him and share all of the photographs we have. Calvin-he was very proud of you and would keep me posted on your accomplishments. He loved you a lot. Sueann-I know he loved you and appreciated all of the sacrifices you made for him. You made him laugh, which is important in a marriage. Uncle Ronnie will be missed. Love Linda and Missy

Mrs. Lewis and Calvin,
My heart breaks for the two of you. We had the wonderful opportunity of having Ronnie as our number one truck driver. There will never be another Mr. Lewis, through the years our family and the Lewis family became one big family. We talked almost everyday even though Ronnie wasn't driving for us anymore. A piece of our hearts will be missing now that he isn't here. We will miss that mischievous grin that he always had on his face. Please know that if you two need anything we are here for you and we love you both. Many blessings in the days ahead. Love Cj, Crystal, Zoey, and Ivy Hubbard

Sue Ann and Calvin. Our hearts break for you. We loved Ronnie and always enjoyed our conversations with him. My biggest memories will however be Ronnie and Little Henry with the chickens and riding the golf cart. We plan to visit but want to give you both some time. You know where we are day or night. Love you both!
