Gary Leon Lewis

April 23, 1959 — September 9, 2017

Gary Leon Lewis, 58, of Paragould passed on to his Heavenly home on Saturday, September 9, 2017. He was known for his sense of humor and mischievous personality. Gary never met a stranger and was always being a jokester and trying to make someone laugh. Gary was also the first to offer help to anyone in need.

Gary was faithfully married to his bride, Alice, for 37 years, and was the proud father to one daughter, Crystal (Tittlebell) Burrow and husband Mark. He was PaPa Gibbett to Karley Alyson Burrow and Jaxon Blayne Burrow. Gary is also survived by his loving parents, Everett and Betty Lewis; sisters, Charlotte (Calvin) Foster and Marshia (Bill) Bobo all of Paragould; brother, Eddie Kendrick of Joiner; mother and father-in-law, Junior and Jane Stanfill, as well as a host of other family and friends who loved him dearly.

Gary loved spending time with his family on Lake Norfork, riding his motorcycle with Alice and their cousins, watching Karley playing softball, and looking at Jaxon’s drawings. He also spent 13 years as a truck driver for Wal-Mart where he made many close friends who he came to consider more like family.
