John Patrick Lewis
October 15, 1934 ~ September 25, 2019

John Patrick Lewis, 84, of Selden, met his Savior on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

A celebration of his life will be held Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 6pm at Selden Baptist Church, Selden.

John was born on October 15, 1934, in Dallas to Earl and Elizabeth McDowell Lewis. He married Margie Ann Janzen on May 14, 1955 in Inman, Kansas. Margie preceded him in death on December 27, 2009. John served in the U. S. Navy during the Korean War as an Air Traffic Controller in Great Bend, Kansas where he and his wife had their first child. After moving from Great Bend to Arlington, Texas for 8 years they returned to Buhler, Kansas to finish raising their two daughters. They then moved to the mountains in Tehachapi, California where “Pat” raised rabbits on a commercial basis for many years. Pat later served the State of California as a correctional officer within the prison system. John loved his family, especially his four grandchildren. He built a fort for them complete with bedroom and kitchen facilities. He taught his oldest grandson how to drive in the pasture, and showed him how to use old coke cans to go target shooting. He enjoyed life in the great outdoors on the family’s farm. He built three homes his family lived in over his married life, and got his pilot's license so he could fly around in his Cessna airplane on the weekends. He loved to fly, often taking his family flying over the mountains & towns where they’d drop in for lunch or supper. When John retired, he and Marge returned to Texas, settling in Erath County and bought land in the Selden area. John was active at Harvey Baptist Church in Stephenville for many years and in his last few years became active in the Selden Baptist Church.

John is survived by his daughter, Terri Lewis; grandchildren, Sean Patrick Lewis, Lanell Stanton, Sheldon Stanton, and Donavan Stanton; nieces Becky Lewis and Debbie Lewis, and nephew John Lewis.

Besides his parents and wife, John was preceded in death by daughter, Kathy Lewis Stanton; an infant sister; brothers, Eugene and Joseph; sister, Ilene; and nephew Timothy Lewis.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to TEENS FOR CHRIST c/o Selden Baptist Church in Pat’s name.
