Charles Delbert Lewis, 78, passed away Tuesday, February 16, 2021 in Prairie Village, Kansas.

Memorial service will be held Friday, February 26, 2021 at Callaway-Smith-Cobb Funeral Home.

Charles was born on September 7, 1942, to Virginia Ott in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Known as Doug,
he spent his early childhood in Marlow, Oklahoma and was particularly close to his grandparents,
Georgia and Thomas Cox, and enjoyed spending time at their family owned restaurant and learning to
play pool. He also liked playing sports, particularly basketball. Even though he was an Oklahoma Sooner
fan, he went to Oklahoma State for his undergraduate degree in Mathematics. He would go on to earn
his Master of Business Administration at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Charles enjoyed a long career as a computer programmer, which he found challenging and rewarding.
He met his future wife, Maxine Davidson, when they were both computer programmers at Boeing in
Wichita, Kansas. They would marry and move to Kansas City, Missouri and have four children: Robert,
Richard, Elizabeth and Catherine. Charles was a family man and loved spending time with his kids,
whether it was driving them to their sports’ practices (while singing his favorite songs), being a Boy
Scout leader or helping with their homework. Every summer, they would pile into their car and drive
across the country for their family vacation, often to a national park or Civil War site. He was a lifelong
sports fan and enjoyed watching the local Kansas City teams and of course his Boomer Sooners. He was
loved and will be dearly missed.

Charles was preceded in death by his mother and stepfather Virginia and Noble Crownover and his
grandparents Georgia and Thomas Cox.

He is survived by his son Robert Davidson Lewis and wife Jamie Elaine Lewis, son Richard Thomas Lewis,
daughter Elizabeth Chama Newby and husband Scott Clyde Newby, daughter Catherine Macha Lewis
Adams and husband Jared Monroe Adams, brother Paul Crownover and wife Barbara Crownover,
brother Doyle Crownover and wife Janie Crownover, and ten grandchildren.
