Obituary for Jerry Dean Lewis

Jerry Dean Lewis, age 74, passed away on January 30, 2019 in Springfield, Mo after a long, hard fight with cancer. Jerry was born on October 28, 1944 in Blue Eye, MO to Fred and Mildred Lewis who preceded him in death. He graduated from Blue Eye High School in 1962, where he was a lifelong resident. All who knew Jerry can tell you he went to the school of hard knocks, was a jack of all trades and master of coon hunting. Jerry’s hobbies included coon hunting and raising walker coon hounds, winning the AKC World Coonhound Championship in the 1980’s. His pride and joy were his coonhounds Spike, Buck and Terry. He also loved fishing, hunting, playing cards, and baseball but his greatest love was his family. He spent many hours showing his kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews not only the love of outdoor sports, but how to cheat at poker – most recently his 3-year old grandson Corbin. Jerry was of the Christian faith and knew Jesus.

Jerry is survived by Sondra Osborn and Helen Lewis, his two ex-wives and best friends. His brother Bob Baker of Bois D’Arc, MO along with eight children - Melinda, Susan, Angela (Wade), Melanie, Josh, Joe (Erin), Chris (Wendy), Samantha (Tommy) and Will (Tiffany). Jerry is also survived by 20 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, a host of nieces and nephews as well as many other close relatives and friends.

Jerry was preceded in death by his sisters Edna Gardner and Virginia Scott, his brother Pete Jones and his best friend and cousin Dale Booth.

Funeral services will be held Friday February 8, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Charles M. Nelson Memorial Chapel in Berryville, Arkansas. Viewing will take place prior to the services beginning at 1:00 p.m.
