Christopher Lewis

Mr. Christopher R. Lewis finished his earthly journey on January 19, 2017 after an extended illness.  He was born on April 29, 1976 to the late Paul R. Lewis and Mrs. Nellie Lewis.  The nephew of Margia Berkhalter (Larcell), Sara Larry (Joseph), Shirley Johnson, Harriet Bronson, Anne, Karen, and Donald & S. Regina Wilson; Godson of Shirley Mae Powell and Timothy & Sonya Gray.

Christopher began his Christian journey as a child at Zion Community Church of God; with an enduring strength, faith and love for others; serving as a witness for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  He faced many health challenges of his own, but he never missed an opportunity to comfort and inspire others. His unconditional love for his family and friends will forever be etched in our hearts.

Christopher was formally educated in Jefferson Davis County and was a proud 1994 honors graduate of Prentiss High School.  He continued his education at Hines Community College, where he studied Culinary Arts.  In 2003, he made Charleston, South Carolina his home.

Mr. Lewis leaves to cherish his memory: mother, Mrs. Nellie Lewis; daughter Miss Chrissette Ryleigh Lewis; brother, Mr. Duane Lewis, sister, Dr. Kristi Lewis; special friend, Claunette “CeCe” Chandler; God siblings Aaron , Daris and Michael Brinson, Jerrod, Kelia Carter-Atkins, Lashala Davis, LaHope Woullard, Don & Shameka Holloway, Jay & Shierra Myles, and Diedra Green, along with the members of the Men of Perfection, Chas, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, godchildren, and best friend, Theresa Johnson.


Memorial Services in Prentiss, MS and Charleston, SC will be planned at a later date.

Offering sincere condolences. I am so very sorry for the loss of your loved one. No doubt this is a very difficult time for the family. Please find comfort in knowing that soon our Heavenly Father (Psalm 83:18) will give those who have fallen asleep in death the opportunity to live again (Acts 24:15) and serve him in a world under much better conditions than what we see today. (Psalm 37:29; Rev. 21:4,5)
