Show Low, Arizona ~ 11/14/2006
Raimie Joe Lewis, known by his family, friends, and acquaintances as "Ray" died unexpectedly Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2006 after a short illness.
He was born Nov. 7, 1960 to Silas and Shirley Lewis in Del Rio, Texas and when Ray was three years of age the family moved to Arizona. Ray has lived in Arizona most of his adult life and was a graduate of Tucson Christian High School.
Ray has been a resident in the Burton area near Show Low for approximately the past 12 years. He moved here from Tucson to live in the White Mountains that he loved. Ray was a licensed masonry contractor and helped build many of the homes and commercial buildings in Show Low and throughout the White Mountains and in the Tucson area. Ray operated his own masonry company called, Solid Solutions Masonry.
He was an avid outdoorsman, hunter, camper, and was particularly fond of the old ways of country living. He was as active member of Calvary Baptist Church in Show Low, part of the Old West Chapel cowboy ministry, and a member of the White Mountain Contractors Association.
Ray was preceded in death by his father, Silas Lewis
He is survived by his mother, Shirley Montano (Carlos) of Tucson; his brothers, Silas Lewis Jr. of Yuma, Randy and Tim Lewis of Tucson; son, Logan Lewis of Burton; daughters, Tara and Hanna Lewis of Show Low; stepson. Morgan Zimmer of Prescott; and a number of nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at Calvary Baptist Church, 241 E. McNeil in Show Low with Pastor Stephen Hair presiding Saturday, Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. There will be a time of refreshments and fellowship to follow in the church fellowship hall. All are welcome.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to the cowboy ministries of Calvary Baptist Church in Show Low which was close to Ray's heart.
