Kelly Dewitt Lewis, of Greensboro, North Carolina (formerly of Fairmont, North Carolina) died on November 23, 2023, at the age of 37 at Moses Cone Medical Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. Kelly was born in Lumberton’s Southeastern General Hospital on January 11, 1986, to James Grayling Lewis and Diane Townsend Lewis. He graduated from Fairmont High School in 2005. Upon graduating Kelly enlisted into the United States Navy and afterwards began his educational studies at Robeson Community College and recently worked at Mondelez International/Nabisco Foods.
Kelly is survived by his parents, James and Diane Lewis, his siblings, James Myron Lewis, Dana Marie Lewis and Dionna Latrice Lewis of Fairmont, North Carolina, Tyrus Rochell Townsend of Harlem, New York and Cecilia Molly Manning of Dillon, South Carolina, his grandmother, Delores “Lois” Lewis of Purvis, North Carolina; his partner of five years, Avolyne Roberts of Lumberton, North Carolina, and her sons, Ethan Roberts, DeZhian Roberts and Zaylin Roberts; his best friend, Quintrail Cummings; cousin group chat “besties” and first cousins, Justin Lewis and Latisha Walter and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and other relatives from around the country.
An avid sneaker collector, superb home cook, sports fanatic and super gamer, Kelly loved his hobbies and would do any and everything to ensure he enjoyed these leisure activities. He would constantly send us images of food he prepared or a new pair of sneakers often within our text groups. Aside from that, he was a doting and nurturing uncle to his nieces and nephews, a friend to everyone, the protective little-big brother, the happy son and very SERIOUS about his hair and beard game!
A man of few words, when Kelly spoke he was serious, deliberate, intentional and direct. His smile would light up the darkest room. His laughter was music to your ears. His handshakes and hugs were soft yet firm. His heart was pure and full of joy. His devotion was solid as a rock. His love was genuine and everlasting. His faith never unwavering. Kelly will truly be missed but the ways in which he impacted each and every person he encountered will continue to live on forevermore and a day.
