Lewis Conway, age 75 of Mt. Sterling died unexpectedly on October 10, 2015 in Mt. Carmel West Hospital. He was born April 24, 1940 in Rowdy, Kentucky. He was the son of the late Elisha Conway and Winnie (Naper) Conway.
Lewis was a former member of both Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club (given the Paul Harris award), member of Knights of Pythias, Madison Plains School Board (8 yrs), Pleasant Township Trustee (16 yrs), Squad Board, Westfall Gospel Sing.
With Lewis it was Family first and foremost. His grandchildren was the love of his life and he enjoyed participating in all of their activities, never missing an event. Lewis was a Community man serving on numerous committees and helping with festivals for the Mt. Sterling community village. One can only imagine how many fish he fried? He loved doing things for other people such as getting them to their doctor appointments, always trying to make himself available. As one might guess, he was an avid Kentucky Wildcats fan as he played basketball in high school himself. He loved watching sports both in person and on TV and always watched Fox News. As for Politics, you wouldn't want to get him started because he fully intended on winning the debate! Lewis will be sadly missed by his family, friends, and community.
