Harry Lewis
Chapel Oaks Funeral Home Hiawatha
Hiawatha , KS

Harry O. Lewis. 75, of Hiawatha, entered this life January 14, 1947 at Highland, one of six children born to Lawrence and Margaret Walton Lewis.  Harry departed this life peacefully with family by his side Sunday, June 26, 2022, at Amberwell Hiawatha.

Harry was a man who did a lot of little odd jobs for a lot of people around the Hiawatha area over the years as well as working full time and coaching when his kids were younger. He made many friends along the way because he was a kind hearted soul that would do anything for anyone. Some may have known him from Flair-Fold/Abitibi-Price days, others may have recognized him as a fixture in the janitorial staff at the Hiawatha Middle School from several years ago. Harry loved working around the kids and was proud to support the Hiawatha sports programs during his time at the school. It was no secret that Harry was a big sports fan.

Through the highs and the lows he was a true fan and may have turned a game or 2 off in disgust one day but would always tune in for that next game. He was always adorned with Royals, Chiefs, KU, and local High school sports gear in support of his grandkids. Those that knew Harry probably also knew a lot about his family that he was always more than excited to talk to anyone about at length. Family meant more to Harry than anything in the world. He was so proud of all of Brenda and his blended family kids, grand kids, and great grand kids who are just devastated at the loss of such an amazing man and family member.

Harry was a simple man who loved everyone so come as you are to celebrate his life with us maybe choose to wear something from one of his favorite teams in honor of him. If you knew him you know he would have loved that.

Survivors include his wife Brenda (Martin) of the home; children Troy Lewis (Michelle), Jennifer Thomas (Bob), Nathan Smith (Rose), Trace Smith (Casey), Randy Smith, Ana Wisdom (Rick), Gary Folsom (Della), Greg Folsom (Angie), and Gerald Folsom Jr (Paula);  siblings:  Larry Lewis, Alice Zahner, Marcia Adams (Dan), Barbara Argabright (Jim); 20 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren with another due in November.

He was  preceded in death by his parents, brothers in law George Powell, Jerry Zahner, sister Mary Powell; sisters in law Doris Lewis, Cathy Lewis, and nephew Kris Lewis.

A Celebration of Harry’s life is planned for 11 a.m. Thursday, June 30, at Chapel Oaks Funeral Home, Hiawatha, with Jason Drahota officiating. Cremation will follow service with private inurnment at Rose Hill Cemetery, Robinson.
