Jeffrey Wayne Lewis Sr. (Vincent Funeral Home)

Jeffrey Wayne Lewis Sr., 63, of Mattaponi, VA passed away March 2, 2024.

Jeff’s passion was always the water. He always enjoyed fishing and being outdoors. Jeff was a family man, all who knew him knew his door was always open. You could find him with his family and friends on the back porch any warm day, steaming crabs and listening to music.

Jeff was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Barbara Lewis, and a brother, John Lewis.
He is survived by two daughters, Jessica Dickson (Chad) and Julia Lewis; a son, Jeffrey Lewis Jr.; three brothers, Jack Lewis Jr (Patti), Jerome Lewis (Mary Ann) and James Lewis (Carolyn). He is survived by three grandchildren; close family friend, Peter Parkhurst; and many nieces and nephews; all of whom he loved dearly.

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing”

Instead of flowers, the family requests donations to Recovery Outdoors,, or Proclaiming Grace Outreach, 20051 Tabernacle Road, Barhamsville, VA 23011.
