Arthur Thomas Lewis

d. February 21, 2023

On Tuesday, February 21, 2023, the Lord called Arthur Thomas Lewis, Jr. to come home at Henrico Doctors Hospital. After 76 years of sharing his love for his family, friends, and other lives he touched along the way, Arthur’s battle with insurmountable health conditions has been put to rest. Arthur was born on November 25, 1946, to the late Arthur T. Sr. and Mary P. Lewis in Fredericksburg, VA. He graduated from Walker-Grant High School and earned a B.S. degree in Business from Howard University. While in college he joined the Air National Guard Reserves where he served and was honorably discharged. He spent his early post-college years in Fredericksburg working in the City Manager’s office. In 1972 he married Larunatta Barlow (Pollard) currently of Midlothian, VA with whom he raised two sons, Brian Arthur Lewis (Lyndsey) of Rumson, NJ and Justin Thomas Lewis of Alexandria, VA. After a divorce from his first wife, he married the late Rose Thomas who is deceased. While in the Richmond area, Arthur moved to Chesterfield County, Virginia where he resided until the present. Arthur was a passionate and loving father, husband, and real estate professional for over 45 years. Including his two sons he leaves to cherish his memory four sisters, Rita Bundy of Fredericksburg, VA, Carolyn Davidson of Orlando, FL, Colleen Hesson (Jerry) of Upper Marlboro, MD, Joyce Johnson (George) of Fredericksburg, VA and close family members including three beautiful grandchildren, Jordyn, Isabel, and Lennox, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who will all mourn his passing. He leaves behind his wisdom from studies in real estate, finances, and his passion foe knowledge about medicine and survival. These are just a few things Arthur was passionate about. Arthur was a member of numerous organizations, real estate groups, and survivalist programs, as well as the National Black Alliance Network. Arthur prided himself on education, networking with like-minded professionals, through participation in post-graduate courses at Virginia Commonwealth University. Arthur was also a faithful and long-standing member of the First Baptist Church of South Richmond. Arthur will be remembered for his sense of humor, natural gift of conversation, strong faith, and heartfelt consideration for the well-being of others. While Arthur was not able to adopt all the rapidly developing technology in today's world, he was one of the few of God's children that still valued a phone call. That is just one of the many small things about Arthur that we cherished and will miss. You always knew he was going to check in on you. Thank you and God bless Arthur and his loved ones who are feeling the difficulty of loss but celebrate the joy of his life, share in his wonderful memory, and who pray that he has joined other loved ones in heaven.
