Andrew “Andy” James Lewis (33) of Texas City, Texas, passed away on January 3, 2024 in Texas City, Texas. He was born on April 17, 1990 to Ross Lewis and Rebecca Willson-Lewis. Andrew graduated from Santa Fe High School in 2010. He enjoyed hunting, notably geese and wild hogs.
Andrew is preceded in death by a Turkey, a saint and a bunch of grouchy old men, all loving him eternally: grandfathers Jim Lewis, J. H. Willson, Charley Huddleston, James “Turkey” Graham; great-grandparents Virginia and Bill Tunal, Betty Lou and Darrell O’Connor.
He is survived by his daughter Camilla Rose Tombrella; parents Rebecca and Ross Lewis; sister Kristina Lewis and nephew Nathaniel James Kohr; grandmothers Gloria Huddleston of Texas City and Judy Lewis of Santa Fe; a whole slew of remarkable and unconventional relatives.
Andy “Uncle Nasty” made friends from all walks of life wherever he chose to wander. His family wishes to acknowledge that he is also survived by many friends that became family and family that remain friends.
Andrew enjoyed everything outdoors and loved making people smile. From avian launch technician at 5 years old, summer camp counselor at 12, to hunting guide and heavy equipment operator, Andy had no problem getting a little mud on his boots. Andy knew how to make kids and adults alike at ease in any situation.
Andrew had been a member of IUOE 450, worked as a heavy equipment operator with Imperial Crane and was a guide for Third Coast Outfitters in both Texas and Arkansas. Most recently he was working part time as a mechanic.
A Memorial service for Andrew will be held at Crowder Funeral Home in La Marque, TX, Friday, January 12, 2024 from 3-5pm.
There will be a celebration of life gathering Saturday, January 13, 2024 in Santa Fe, TX at Rooster’s Orange Bar on FM 646 beginning at 7pm.
