Over the years he rode rodeo in California, lived in Meeker, Rangely and Bisbee, Ariz., but returned to the Roaring Fork Valley in the 1970s. Lewis was a cowboy, a prospector, a bartender, a construction worker, and a master storyteller who remembered everyone he ever met, and made friends with most of them. He was a beloved brother and a great friend.
