Lewis was born on August 24, 1945, in Harlingen, Texas to Albert and Kathleen (Moses) Tversky. He graduated from Palo Duro High School in 1963 and received his Bachelor of Science from West Texas State University in 1968. He then received his Master of Education from Sul Ross State University in 1988.
Lewis was a part of Canyon ISD Junior High School for 48 years. He began teaching science, coaching and then later joined the administration as assistant principal of Canyon Junior High. He also taught driver’s education and was a dedicated leader in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for many years. Later in life, he enjoyed learning about the taxidermy trade with his grandson, Blake.
Lewis was a mentor, an outdoor lover, and a man of wisdom for many. He loved fishing, bow hunting and was a hunting guide for several years. He also enjoyed officiating, but his greatest joy was his grandchildren. Lewis never stopped pouring the word of the Lord into the people around him no matter the occasion. He was devoted to his Bible study and his ministry was sharing weekly devotionals with his loved ones.
Lewis was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his wife, Debbie Tversky; his daughter, Dr. Nicole Lopez, and her children, Parker, and wife, Jessie, Rylee, and Carson; his son, Jon Tversky, and his wife, Joni and their children, Blake, and wife Kylee, Blaine, and Blayson; his son, T. J. Muir, and wife Sarah, and their children, Nate, Hudson, and Boden; his son, Matt Muir, and wife, Erin; his son, Monty Muir, and wife, Stephanie, and their daughters Margot and Eloise; his two sisters, Carol Sanders and husband, Brian, and Linda Purvis and husband, Bob; and numerous nieces and nephews. He also lovingly welcomed Mary Eggemeyer Sixta and Jerome Eggemeyer as part of his chosen family.
