Luther was born June 1, 1977 in Beaufort County, the son of Luther Gary Lewis and Dorothy Alligood Lewis.

When it came to work, he was a pure logger at heart, as was his family’s long tradition of the logging industry, and though it was hard work, he never gave up on wanting the continue what his family had done for decades. He will be truly missed by his family and all that knew him.

Mr. Lewis is survived by his mother: Dorothy Alligood Lewis of Chocowinity; his father: Luther Gary Lewis of Greenville; a sister: Christina Crisp and husband Bobby of Washington; two brothers: Matthew Lewis and wife Christie of Washington and Stephen Tyler Thorp of Raleigh; four nephews: Jacob Pyle, Chase Dixon, Michael Dixon and Bobby Crisp II and a niece: Olivia Dale Lewis.
