Lewis Remembered

A long-time office holder in the Wiregrass was laid to rest over the weekend.

Last Tuesday, Kayo Lewis attended his last Coffee County Commission Meeting.

He died Friday after a long battle with bone marrow cancer.

The 71-year-old had served two-terms on the board. He had been its chairman for two years.

Governor Riley will soon appoint someone to fill the remaining two-and-one-half years of Mr. Lewis' term.

The New Hope Community native had a reputation as one of the board's hardest workers, even attending commission meetings while gravely ill.

Several of his colleagues say Kayo will be hard to replace.
