Gary E. Lewis, 74, of Hudson, Florida, passed away on October 8, 2021. He is survived by his wife, Peggy Lewis; sons, Dennis Harmon and daughter-in-law Roxanne, David Harmon; daughter, Dawn Torres and son-in-law Frank; grandchildren, Gregory Harmon, Sean Harmon, Meghann Zarrillo; eight great-grandchildren; brother, Ronnie Lewis; sister, Abby Hartge. He was preceded in death by his father Harley Lewis, mother Cora Lewis, sisters Barbara Lewis, Janet Nye, and Mary Lewis, and brother Danny Lewis.
He owned and operated Gary Lewis Masonry with integrity for approximately 20 years before retiring to enjoy his hobbies of archery, hunting, and fishing. He was a member of the Aripeka Archers Club and accumulated many trophies and awards for his exceptional archery skills. He also enjoyed hunting all over the state of Florida but spent most of his time in the Ocala National Forest. As for fishing, wherever there was water and the possibility of a fish, he would just toss in his line to see what he might get to bite.
Gary enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. A good meal, a quiet afternoon sitting on the porch watching a western movie or telling jokes to make his family and friends laugh. He loved his family and cherished every moment he had with them. Those are the memories of him that will live on for many years to come.
