Daniel Ray Lewis “Danny”, age 69, passed away January 7, 2021 at Paris Regional Medical Center in Paris, Texas. Danny was born in Durant, Oklahoma to Joseph D Lewis, and Eneree Lewis, both deceased. He was a graduate of Durant High School.
Danny is survived by his dedicated wife of 52 years, Violet Anderson Lewis. A son, Joseph Lewis, daughter, Heather Clark, son-in-law, Greg Clark, and two grandsons, Preston and Evan “Deut” Clark.
He was very close to Violet’s family. His mother-in-law, Nita Anderson, of Boswell, Oklahoma was like a mother to him, as was his father-in-law, Elton “Pete” Anderson like a father (now deceased).
Danny adored his big brother, Buddy Cozart, from Washington state (now deceased).
He has three surviving sisters: Betty Hahn, of Denison, Texas, Diana Adams of Durant, Oklahoma, and Joella Comp of Springfield, Missouri, along with nieces, nephews and cousins.
Danny had a long career in a job he loved with Champions Marketing in Grand Prairie, Texas. He was a successful Manufacturers’ Representative.
He loved working outside landscaping the yard, and there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do in the way of building things in his home. He had a natural ability for mechanical work, which he put to good use in home projects.
Danny had a special companion while he was ill. A beloved cat named Criquit.
All of the family will miss Danny’s big, strong hugs when saying hello, his smile and that slow Texas drawl. He will be forever missed.
Bright-Holland Funeral Home in Paris, Texas respectfully cared for Danny’s cremation.
