James was born August 26, 1955 to the late Willie Ray Lewis and Mildred Cook Lewis. He was greeted in heaven by his dad, mom and brothers Jimmy Ray Lewis and Roger Allen Lewis, and a sister he is meeting for the first time.
James loved NASCAR and dirt track racing, it didn't matter. He was an Earnhardt fan and had many of his collectibles. He was also a Dallas Cowboys fan all his life. He always enjoyed pulling for the UNC Tarheels during the tournaments. James loved people and never met a stranger and enjoyed talking and joking around with people. He was always ready to start up a Rook game and he and his partner would win every time. James loved the outdoors, sitting on his porch, mowing, and planting flowers. He enjoyed the fellowship of his brothers and sisters in Christ at Penn Memorial Baptist Church, where he was a member. He could not always attend because of health issues but he loved to call and talk with the members.
