His youngest brother Henry Grant Lewis spoke on behalf of the Lewis family this week, thanking the nation and the world for the outpouring of tributes and condolences for John Lewis.
“He fought until the very end,” said Henry Grant Lewis. “That was my big brother. He was a fighter with a tenacious spirit. But he was always gracious and kindhearted. A great man and public servant. And even greater father, husband, brother and son.”
