Lewis lived in Baltimore, Ohio for many years and was the owner of the former K & K Market where he made many friends over the years and the kids referred to him as the “Candy Man” because of the penny candy counter where he always threw in a little extra, he often opened up the store in the middle of the night when the fire department had an overnight call and needed drinks and food for the fire fighters that were out on the call. He always had a smile and a conversation to be had with customers when they’d stop in to pick up their reserved Sunday newspaper or a dip of the best homemade hard dipped ice cream.
