BRIAN CHARLES LEWIS, 37, of Huntington, W.Va., went home to be with Jesus on Tuesday, September 22, after battling a short illness. His life was blessed with a sweet wife, Nikki, and three precious sons, Decker, Merrick and Arlo, whom he adored. Brian was loved by his family, which includes his parents, Russ and Terry; his sister, Morgan and her husband Joe Trout; nieces, Breeze and Ember; and grandparents, Charles and Rosalie Lewis. Brian was also well-loved by his aunts and uncles, Randy Lewis, Susan (Brady) Lipscomb, Trish (Skip) Harris, Chaun (Scott) Maddox, Bill McAlister Jr., and a slew of cousins that love to share stories of childhood shenanigans. Nikki’s family also loved Brian as if he were their own: Nikki’s parents, Rick and Kim Clay; aunts and uncles, Sheila (David) Caproni, Gwen (Randy) Everman, Brenda (Joe) Fraley; and several cousins. Brian was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charles and Barbara Hensley. He had many friends that include Tyler Cantrell, Caleb Lyon, Eric Simmons, RK Gissel, and several other co-workers from J.H. Fletcher’s. Brian’s greatest enjoyments were spending time with Nikki and his boys, standing on a creek bank fishing for muskie, deer hunting, teasing his sister and being the best Uncle B. The family would like to collect memories of Brian to keep for his sons. Please come to the visitation with your favorite memory in mind. Stationary will be available for you to record your memory. We are requiring masks to be worn due to many medically fragile family members that would like to attend the services. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Brian Lewis Memorial Fund at WesBanco for his three sons. We are grateful for the compassion and kindness shown to us by the staff at St. Mary’s Medical Center, especially those who provided such excellent care while Brian was a patient in the ICU. We are also thankful for our family and friends who have loved us so well during this very difficult time. We love each of you. Funeral service will be conducted 1:30 p.m. Saturday, September 26, 2020, at Hall Funeral Home and Crematory, Proctorville, Ohio. Burial will follow in Dock’s Creek Cemetery, Kenova, W.Va. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, September 25, 2020, at the funeral home. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.ehallfuneralhome.com.
