  • MARVIN A. LEWIS, SR.


    Marvin A. Lewis, Sr. 54, was born December 24, 1961 to the late Ernest Murray and Dorothy M. Lewis in Birmingham, AL. He was the fifth of his seven siblings; Riley Johnson, Jr., Eddie Johnson, Terry Johnson, Veronica “Faye” Lewis (whom preceded him in death), and Derrick “Pooh” Johnson.

    Marvin Sr. moved to Kansas City, MO with his mother in 1970. She later met and married his step-father, Riley Johnson. He graduated from Southwest High School in 1980. There he met Delores Webster. They were united in Holy Matrimony September 2005.

    He started working at Jasper’s Italian Restaurant in 1977 as a dishwasher but quickly moved up to become one of the top chefs in the United States.  He joined United Believers Community Church in February 2011 under the leadership of Darron Lamonte Edwards. He was a devoted member until the Lord called him home on May 16, 2016.

    Our beloved Marvin Sr. was a faithful and loving husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, nephew, and cousin. He was given the nickname “Godfather” and “Dre” by his family and friends.  He was the BEST griller in the world to all of his family and friends.  He was loved so much by many and he will truly be missed, but never forgotten.

    He leaves to cherish his memory:  his wife of 11 years Delores Lewis; four children, Shawntae Baldwin, Keonna Baldwin, Marvin Lewis, Jr., and Delish Lewis; four grandchildren, De’Andrey Gordon, Jr., Keayeja Spriggs, Aniyeja Weathers, and Jerone Weathers, Jr.; four brothers, Riley Johnson, Jr., Terry Johnson, Eddie Johnson (Jennifer), and Derrick Johnson; one sister, Mary Johnson; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, step siblings, and friends that he loved dearly.
