    I stayed out of trouble because Coach gave me a job and believed in me even when I screwed up. He was the best to a kid like me and many others who had nothing.

  2. John Singleton says:

    Coach Lewis was truly a person who cared about the youth. His involvement with kids at W W Law gave so many an opportunity to be the best they could be. A boss during the Summer as a lifeguard, a coach for the swim team. Each of these were because he enjoyed helping young people be the best they could be in whatever they were doing. My condolences to the family and friends. He will be missed but never forgotten.

    Bernie and I were on the football and track teams in high school. We came from different cultures and sections of town but we had an great personal relationship on and off the field. He had a gentle way and a great sense of humor. He reached out to me several years ago via phone and we had a great conversation about our lives. He was a a great example of service to community.
    RIP, Bernie

    My deepest condolences to the family. To my cousins Deen and Leslie, you lost a Giant! I have sooo many fond childhood memories of time spent with your family as children. I can recall countless nights spent spent at your house and he was so much fun! I will never forget his sense of humor and how as a child I had to figure out when he was serious or playing… lol. I know you are going to miss him and his presence, and I can’t even tell you it will get better, but take your time and grieve and always remember the many good times you’ve shared. He will always be with you spiritually. I love y’all and I’m only a phone call away.
