George Lewis, 81, of Granbury, Texas, passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2023.
Visitation will be held from 11:30 A.M., until 1:00 P.M. on Monday, April 17, 2023, at the Wiley Center Chapel, 420 E. US Highway 377 East in Granbury. Graveside Service will follow at 1 P.M. at Acton Cemetery in Granbury. Memorials may be made to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
George was born on October 7, 1941, in Waxahachie, Texas to parents William Harold and Edna Mae Lewis. He graduated from Waxahachie High School and then from UNT where he met his wife, Suzi. They were married on December 21, 1962, in Denton, Texas. Together they raised 3 beautiful children in Midlothian, Texas. As a family, they spent countless hours on the lake.
George served 6 years in the National Army Guard. He then had a very successful 27 year career in pharmaceuticals with Bayer. He was a family man that provided in all ways – financial, love, caring and laughter. Anyone that knew George loved him. He was very personable, quick witted, and “he never knew a stranger.” His last residence at Lakestone Terrace was truly a blessing. He was able to enjoy this last stretch of his life with precious, newfound friends.
George was preceded in death by his parents, William Harold Lewis and Edna Mae Lewis; brother, William Harold Lewis; and by his wife, Suzi Lewis.
George is survived by his daughter, Karen Hinton and husband John; son, Greg Lewis and wife Debbie; daughter, Kim Strange and husband Chris; and grandchildren, Tristan Hinton, Hunter Hinton, and Amber Hooks and husband Wesley. He will be greatly missed by all. He “kept it between the ditches” as he would say for 81 years.
Services are under the direction of Wiley Funeral Home in Granbury, Texas.
