William Lewis

May 30, 1922 — March 26, 2018

Bill was born in Frankfort on May 30, 1922 to the late Robert Alexander and Rachel Scott Brawner Lewis. He was united in marriage to his loving wife, Betty Carol Whallen Lewis, of Frankfort. He was truly a man of many talents and trades. He was a WWII Veteran of the United States Navy and an Elder of Millville Christian Church. In his earlier years, he was the Owner and Operator of Horseshoe Dining Room and worked in construction, as well as operated heavy equipment. Traveling to various surrounding states to build many golf courses, Bill decided that he would rather fly than drive - so, he got his pilot's license. He worked many years as a Realtor. As an avid outdoorsman, he loved spending time on the farm, hunting, fishing, or training his beloved birddogs. He was also the Founder of the Franklin County Sportsmen's Club. He served as a Magistrate on the Franklin County Fiscal Court. Throughout his memorable life, his passion and love for his community and family never wavered.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his siblings, Charles, Elbert, Robert, Henry, and Harry Lewis, Frances Moore, Tommie Hockensmith, Dorothy Henry, and Lura Edith Brown.
Along with his loving wife, he is survived by his children, William E.
