Donald Wayne Lewis

VALDOSTA — Donald Wayne Lewis, 71, of Jennings, Fla., passed away unexpectedly Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012, at his home. Wayne was born in Jennings, Fla., on Feb. 25, 1941, to the late James Darrell Lewis and Mrs. Eddie Johns Lewis. He was a lifelong resident of Hamilton County and graduated from Jennings High School. In 1966, he married Eula Starling and started his family. Wayne retired from Occidental Chemical Company (PCS). He continued to work hard around the farm as long as he was able.

Wayne was preceded in death by a grandson, Tyler Rogers.

Survivors include his wife, Eula Lewis; his son, Donnie Lewis and his daughter-in-law, Rhonda; his daughter, Karen Lewis; a brother, John Lewis, all of Jennings, Fla..; grandson, D.W. Lewis and a granddaughter, Tayler Rogers.
