Obituary: Roy Clifford Lewis

KERRVILLE — Roy Clifford Lewis of Ingram, Texas, passed in his sleep on Friday, Jan. 8, 2016. He was born Aug. 26, 1947, to Oakley Roy and Virginia Mae (Whitehouse) Lewis in Kentucky.

His first love was the structure and discipline of the Army. He served with distinction, earning a Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, two Purple Hearts, an Individual Presidential Citation and many other awards. At one time, he was asked to be the personal driver for Gen. Creighton Abrams when he served as Chief of Staff. Roy survived two helicopter crashes in Vietnam, which led to his later disabilities. While in Vietnam, he answered a pen pal letter generated through “Dear Abby.” This led to a mail courtship and marriage, while on leave, to Catherine Lewis in 1968.
