March 16, 1970 – Thursday, April 8, 2021
Jimmy Joe Lewis, Sr. age 51 of Stella, Missouri passed away on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at his residence. He was born in Joplin, Missouri to Jerry Lewis and Brenda (Lawrence) Lewis on March 16, 1970.
Jimmy worked most of his life at Able Body Corporation as a fiberglass technician. Later he started his own business in the same field. He was skilled in many other things outside his profession which he graciously shared with family and friends. There was nothing Jimmy wouldn’t do to help. Our most loving memories of Jimmy are his quick wit and story telling that left all of us in stitches no matter what was going on in life. He was our “funny man” and he will be sorely missed in all regards of his special character and what he brought to us by just being himself. God just got a good one. Taken to soon but taken to a place we will see him again. We all love you!!
Jimmy married Charity (Downey) Lewis on September 11, 2020 in Miami, Oklahoma and she survives him.
