Obituary for Samuel Lewis

On Wednesday morning, February 28, 2018, the angel of mercy appeared at the bedside of or beloved Samuel Anthony “Tony” Lewis and gave him the command to come home to his Heavenly Father.

Samuel “Tony” was born on October 17, 1956 in Munich, Germany to Samuel and Initta Lewis. He accepted Christ at a very early age.

Samuel “Tony” joined Simon Temple AME Zion Church and became a member of the Men of Zion. He was also a devoted member of the Cumberland County Transitional Aftercare Network (T.A.N.) team. Samuel “Tony” was very passionate about ministering to the men who were serving their time in Cumberland County jail and various prisons throughout the state. Samuel “Tony” had a compassionate and caring soul toward others, and would always feed the homeless during the holidays.

Samuel’s “Tony’s” father was in the army and he wanted to be just like him. He went on join the navy and after five years he re-enlisted as a navy reservist for another seven years. While in the reserves he attended Fayetteville State University and received his Bachelors of Arts in Theater.
After retiring from the navy Samuel “Tony” went to work at Fort Bragg as a Results of Trial technician in the Police Records Section within the Provost Marshals Office at the Fort Bragg Directorate of Emergency Services, where he retired after 17 years of service.

Samuel “Tony” is preceded in death by his father Samuel Lewis and his sister Michele Lewis. He is survived by his mother Initta Lewis; one son, Keyante Franklin; one sister, Angela Lewis; one brother, Rickey Lewis (wife Karen); one granddaughter, Ava-Simone Franklin; three nieces Tamika Ely, Dashia Lewis, and Marley Ely; seven nephews, JaWann Ely, Rickey Lewis II, Robert Lewis, Charles Washington III, Jalonta Juarbe, Ja’Quez Ely-McNeill, and Malachi Lewis; one uncle, George Thompson; one aunt Mary Sharpe; and a large number of cousins.


Another soldier gone to get a great reward; he fought the fight, he kept the faith and now he has gone home to God. His soul has gone to God who giveth; the earth will claim its own, his body; But he is shouting around the throne while we are left to mourn. But some day we will meet again, and our love ones who have gone before, some day we will reach that happy land where parting will be no more.

Your loving mother and family
