Obituary for Kenneth Dowey Lewis

“I am a fisherman. It’s not merely something that I do, it’s who I am.”
Kenneth Dowey Lewis departed on his final fishing trip on Tuesday, February 6, 2018. He fought a long and difficult battle with cancer. Kenny was born February 20, 1954 in Pascagoula, MS to the late Leon and Voncille Lewis. He grew up in Escatawpa and retired from Dow Incorporated as a chemical operator.
In addition to his parents, Kenny is preceded in death by his only son, Jeremy Blake Lewis.
Kenny leaves behind his loving wife of 42 years Cheryl Marie Lewis; daughters, Shanna (Derek) Jenkins, Kayla (Daniel) Blevins; granddaughter, Taylor Jenkins; sister, Rhonda (Bro. Rodney) Coleman; mother-in-law, Joyce McKinley; along with many friends and fishing buddies.
Kenny never met a stranger. He would become fishing friends with anyone he met. Most of his time after retirement, he could be found with a fishing pole in his hands trolling up and down the riverbanks. He spent many hours in his “ole blue boat” waiting for the next fish to bite. Kenny loved to share his catch with friends and family, and of course this was after he took the fish photo of the day! He would take time to line up each fish and have Cheryl take the picture. Kenny created “Reel Outdoor Adventures” on face book to share his photos.
Kenny will be missed by many. He made an impact on everyone he met. The “Fish Whisperer” will live on in our hearts and memories. As soon as Kenny greeted his son, a new heavenly fishing adventure began.
“Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men”. Matthew 4:19
Services for Kenny will be Saturday, February 10, 2018 beginning at 2p.m. at Temple Baptist Church with Bro. David Williams officiating. Private burial will follow.
Heritage Funeral home, locally owned and operated in Escatawpa/Moss Point, Ms is in charge of the arrangements. You view and sign the online book for Kenneth D. Lewis at
