    To the Family. I am sorry for your loss and hope this scripture bring some comfort at this time. I hope this scripture bring some comfort at this time. Revelation 21:4- And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,+ and death will be no more,+neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.”

    It is comforting to know that the God of all comfort will completely remove all grief at the time of the earthly resurrection. The Bible at, “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and God will wipe away the tears from all faces”. Isaiah 25:8. What a wonderful day that will be when we can welcome William on the day of his resurrection!

    Chrissy and I are deeply saddened by the news of Bill passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Lewis family. Bill was a great leader and coached many of us through the years as we matured in our careers. The impact he has made on me as a friend and a mentor, I will keep in my heart and thoughts for my remaining years, until we meet again. Bill & I always had great stories that we traded about the hills of Oklahoma. I have not seen or talked with Bill in a few years; however, I have thought about him a lot over the years. My heart hurts of the news of losing this great man. Bill, I will meet up with you some day at the bridge, when it's my time to go. I will bring a jar of that moonshine from the hills of Oklahoma, my friend.

    I was hired by Bill and Jimmy Bodin in 1985. I will always be grateful for the day I met Bill and became a part of the NGI family. I learned so much from Bill over the years. We shared a lot of laughs and more than a few drinks. Bill will be missed by everyone that knew him. He was a special man. My thoughts and prayers go out to Barbara and the rest of the Lewis family.

    Bill was part of the soul and the heart of NGI in every respect. He taught me so much and worked so hard for all of us at NGI. We spent many “after-five” hours together; yet you never thought about that because Bill was so great to work with. His true legacy lives on in the so many people that work at NGI now, because of what they learned from Bill. He devoted his career to growing NGI to what it is today. He will be missed. God Bless You Bill Lewis. I miss you buddy.

    Bill was definitely someone you could rely on when there was an issue. Although i did not work with him directly, he was only a phone call away. Bill will be greatly missed. God bless you Bill and my heart felt condolence to the family.

    Everyone who has ever worked with Bill would consider him to be our "Mentor". He could always find a solution to any problem you may have, and made it look easy. He was easy to approach, always supportive and you could take his advice to the bank. I miss his humor, his non-PC comments, and unwillingness to compromise on certain things, like wanting a Jim Beam even when other drinks were 2 for 1!.

    Bill was a great mentor and a perfect example of how to treat one another with respect regardless of one’s background or appearance. He taught me so much in my career. I am truly blessed to have worked side by side with Bill for several years. Many great memories he will be dearly missed. May God Bless and Comfort Bill and his Family.

    Bill was always my mentor at Newtron. We would solve mechanical problems together in the instrumentation field. He was the “go to “ guy at work for just about anything that would come up. I’ll miss you Bill. Your pal, Ronnie Spann
