Robert “Lewis” Hutchins

Robert “Lewis” Hutchins, 67, of Winston-Salem, passed away Thursday, December 6, 2018 peacefully in his sleep.  He was born October 10, 1951 to Buford Neal Hutchins and Alta Vida Swaim.  Lewis was a good friend to many and often said he “would do anything for you if he was physically able.” His sense of humor was contagious and he was not afraid to share his opinion with others.  Lewis loved with all his heart.  His daughters and grandchildren were his pride and joy.  He often boasted about their accomplishments big or small.  He was a proud Papa.  He had lots of friends including one very special friend, Kip Clodfelter, who he loved like a brother.  Kip was always available and much appreciated.  Lewis enjoyed heading up and coordinating the Parkland High School annual “Roundup” and keeping in touch with other alumni.  He was preceded in death by his parents.  He is survived by his daughters, Kristy (Dwayne) Spence and Carrie (Derek) Stephenson, both of Holly Springs; four grandchildren, Katie, Kyle and Ryan Stephenson and Wesley Spence; two brothers, Larry (Karen) Hutchins and Buford (Shirley) Hutchins; nieces – Shana Stewart and Kelly McKee; and nephews, Scott Hutchins, Donald Hutchins and Jonathan Chandler Hutchins.  A memorial service will be held 11:00 AM Saturday, December 15, 2018 at Reynolda Church, EPC in Winston-Salem with Pastor Danny Jarmon of Macedonia Baptist Church of Holly Springs officiating.  The family will receive friends immediately following the service.

    Your Dad was very proud of his children and grandchildren, he often shared stories on numerous get togethers and his face would light up with each story. Thinking of Lewis and his family and feeling sorrow for this heartfelt loss. Dennis and Elizabeth Kale

    I was so sad to hear of Lewis’s passing. We will miss him at the Roundups He was so much a part of. He always talked about family including his beloved Winston. He will be missed but we know he was welcomed with joyful arms. My prayers go out to the family.

    I remember Lewis all the way back to childhood on Waterbury Street. Many years passed as our lives took us in different directions. We reconnected several years ago at the Fall Parkland High School. It was always great fun when Lewis would have friends over where he cooked outside and we all could laugh and share memories. I will really miss Lewis and remember his close special friend “Patti”. It gives me comfort to know both are now “hanging out” together in a place I know as “Heaven”…..

    I know he missed his wife Debbie and often said he would be seeing her again soon! Lewis was a wonderful human who also grieved the loss of his canine pal, Winston. He was my friend and a wonderfully memorable classmate, full of hijinks and wit from day one! We are all better people because Lewis was our friend. Godspeed, Lewis!

    To the family
    There are no words, but know that your hearts are carried before the Cross of CHRIST in a time when it may be hard to place yourself there.

    HE Knows. HE Sees and Yes, HE cares.
