He was born in Daytona Beach, Florida on September 25, 1965 to Helen Nunn Lewis and Andrew Jackson Lewis both whom survive.   He proceeded in death by grandparents: Sally Mae and Andrew Lee Lewis and John Edward and Emma Allen Nunn; and sister, Leslie Dawn Lewis.

He graduated Middlesboro High School Class of 1983. He worked for Middlesboro Fire Department from which he retired. He loved being outdoors as he was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved gardening and all sports which Kentucky Wildcats were his favorite. David will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We take great comfort knowing he is resting in the arms of Jesus.
