“For I am ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith.”   II Timothy 4:6-7

Some things in life are impossible for mankind to fully understand. No matter how long God has entrusted our loved ones here on earth, their sudden departure is hard to understand. We must
accept God’s will and abide by his holy words. The bible tells us that to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. Minister Rudolph “Rudy” Lewis was born December 2, 1947, to the union of the late Mr. Randolph Lewis, Jr., and Mrs. Johnnie Altamese Lewis-Jones in Leesburg, Florida. After moving to Brunswick, Rudy received his formal education in the Glynn County School
System. He attended Risley High School and was a graduate of the class of 1965.

Rudy was employed for many years at the Southeast Georgia Health System in various positions. He was also employed at the Summit Professional Plaza as a concierge and was featured in the
Brunswick News because of his love to sing to the patients. He was affectionately known as “the singing doorman.” His spiritual journey began at an early age when he joined Abyssinia Baptist Church. He later moved his membership to Bright Star Baptist Church and then to Greater Jerusalem Baptist Church. He then returned to his home church at Abyssinia Baptist Church, where he served on the ministry staff.

He was preceded in death by four sisters, Alice E. Lewis-Childs, Sandra K. Lewis-Holmes, Eve Lewis-Oneil, and Carrie Lewis. He leaves to cherish his memories: his loving wife of fifteen
years, Forestine E. Lewis of Brunswick, GA; three sons, Everett L. (Adrianne) Lewis, Sr., of Guyton, GA, and Alphonso L. (Shanda) Hunt and Frederick K. Hunt both of Brunswick, GA; one daughter, Stephanie R. Lewis of Brunswick, GA; three sisters, Miriam C. Lewis and Margaret Lewis, both of Kingsland, GA, and Betty Watson of Rodeo, CA; one brother, Everett (Susan)
Lewis of El Paso, TX; two sisters-in-law, Minnie P. Christopher of Brunswick, GA, and Vivian L. Sims of Jacksonville Beach, FL; seven grandchildren, Everett L. Lewis, Jr., Briana J. Singleton, E’ll
Lynette Lewis, Alphonso Hunt, Jr., Sh-Nesha Hunt, Kierstin Hunt and Nathaniel Hunt; one great-grandchild, Kariel Davis; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and sorrowing friends.
