Son, brother, uncle, friend, outdoorsman, and caregiver

In the early morning of Wednesday, November 25, 2015, the day before Thanksgiving, my little brother and only sibling, Kris Lewis, was killed in a head-on collision with a semi-truck while driving my dad's king cab F-350.  We don't have a reason as to why it happened.  The trooper who dealt directly with the accident (and has been one of the most incredible people I have ever met) went above and beyond and dug deep on both drivers and just couldn't find any cause. There was no drinking, no phone activity, nothing. Neither driver was doing anything wrong and because of that, we hold no ill-will towards the other driver. 


Kris was a good man.  He was an emergency responder and ocean rescue specialist in Corolla, OBX, NC. He was always genuinely happy and content with life.  How many people can say they are 100% satisfied with life, especially at 21 years olds?

This foundation was created as an outreach and support for people and ideas that will continue Kris's life, legacy, & be the air he breathes in this world as he works vigilant miracles in & around our lives in the next. Every day we strive to be like him in so many ways. He was & is strong, faithful, a giver, a lover, a friend, a leader, a "sheepdog", & someone who fully understood that life is bigger than ourselves. At only 21, he knew life was about our community, our teammates, our comrades, our family, our friends, our loved ones, wildlife, & those strangers we all meet in life that make the largest impacts with the smallest acts of kindness. Here, we hope to share memories, share updates on the donation-based foundation placed in his name - The Kristopher Lewis Foundation, to meet one another, to provide opportunities to come together & support, etc. 

Today, & every day, we embrace life as Kris always did & strive to encompass his morals, values, & easy love of life as he naturally did. 

Our motto:  Today I am Kris.
