Melvin Guy Lewis, 67, and a lifetime Warsaw resident, passed away quietly in the care of Autumn Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation in Wabash on Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020, at 12:40 a.m.
Born in Warsaw on March 15, 1953, he was the son of the late Frederick Lewis and the late Virginia Brown. He was a 1972 graduate of Warsaw Community High School and worked for Medtronic for many years.
Melvin was a “gentle giant,” a steadfast friend and was always willing to lend a hand to others in need. He was an avid Harley rider and loved traveling west, to the Dakotas and for many years lived for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He enjoyed deer hunting, fishing and was rarely without his dog and best friend, Brownie.
Those who survive lift a PBR in his memory including his son, John Hunziker, of Warsaw; sister, Phyllis Leek, of Warsaw; brother, Kent Lewis, of Phoenix, Ariz.; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in passing by his mother, his father and a brother, Estel Lewis.
