David Lewis Life Story

   David Scott Lewis, a cherished family man, dedicated law enforcement officer, and a devout Christian, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on January 28, 2024, in Marshall, Texas. Born on June 10, 1954, in Denton, Texas, David's life was a testament to service, commitment, and the enduring strength of love.

   David graduated from Marshall High School in 1972 and continued his education at Kilgore College before graduating from the Police Academy. His commitment to his country was evident through his proud service in the United States Air Force from 1974 to 1979. Following his military service, David dedicated 27 years to the Marshall Police Department as an investigator, specializing in accident reconstruction and crime scene analysis. He concluded his distinguished career with an additional 10 years at the Harrison County Sheriff's Office, where he was well-respected and beloved by his co-workers.

   Family was the cornerstone of David's life. He was a devoted husband to his wife of 50 years, Carolyn Sue (West) Lewis, and a loving father to his daughter, Fonda Denise Smith and her husband, David, as well as to his son, James Harold David Lewis and his wife, Christey. His adoration for his grandchildren Rylee, Kinlee, Maelyn, Deacon, Bryce (and his wife, Krystal), and Glenn was boundless, and he cherished every moment spent with them, and great grandchild, Everly. David is survived by his sister, Diana Williams and her husband, Jerry; brother-in-law, Bronson Marshall; and sister-in-law, Sandy Bullard and her husband, Charlie. His legacy continues through his nieces and nephews, Jerrod, Robbie, Jenny, Craig, Jessie, Josh, Adam, Wimberley, Justin, Kim, John, and Sara, as well as through numerous other family members, and a host of friends and colleagues who shared in his journey. Preceding him in death were his parents, Col. James Wimberly and Barbara Lewis, and his sister, Donna Carol Lewis Marshall. His family takes comfort in knowing that David is now reunited with those who have gone before him.

   David's interests outside of work were a reflection of his love for adventure and his deep appreciation for the beauty of creation. An avid photographer, he captured countless memories and scenes that will continue to tell his story. He found joy in camping, boating, and made it a yearly tradition to travel to Mena, Arkansas with his family, embracing the simplicity and peace of nature. Above all, his priority was the time he spent with his family, which he considered the most important and fulfilling aspect of his life. A man of profound faith, David lived out his Christian beliefs in every facet of his life, offering kindness, support, and wisdom to all who knew him. His unwavering faith guided him through life's challenges and triumphs, and his legacy is one of love, integrity, and service.

   David Scott Lewis's life was a beacon of light to those who had the privilege of knowing him. As we mourn his passing, we also celebrate a life well-lived, marked by an unshakeable spirit and a heart that was always open. David's memory will live on in the countless lives he touched, in the principles he upheld, and in the enduring love he leaves behind. A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. David will be deeply missed by all, but his legacy will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to have felt his influence. He was, and always will be, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend, and servant of his community and his Lord.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
