Floran Avon Lewis (“Babe”) passed away on January 19, 2019 in Visalia, CA. He was born on October 26, 1930 in Basher, Missouri to Aaron and Bessie Lewis and had been a resident of Lindsay, CA for over 80 years.
Floran A. Lewis was an army veteran who was awarded a combat infantry badge for serving front line in the Korean War. He was a son, brother, father, grandfather & great grandfather and a true friend loved by all. The length he would go to help his family and friends has no measure and he had so much love and pride in calling Lindsay his home. We will cherish his stories, wisdom and our time with him for as long as we live.
