Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Douglas High School 1968 state runner-up football team, we would like to extend our deepest heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of our beloved teammate Shannon Lewis who passed away recently.

He was laid to rest at the Pirtleville Cemetery on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2018.

As well as a tremendous athlete, Shannon was an all-around dear friend and a humble person. He was dedicated to his chosen field of law enforcement as he was on the gridiron.

I know he will be extremely missed by all of the people whose lives he touched.

So, Shannon, you rest in peace our friend. We will all wait to huddle up with you someday.

God bless you.

Our hearts are heavy with your loss.


Teammates: Jerry Torres #40, Gary James #74, Steve Marshall #23, Fernando Cortez #75, Sergio Ruiz #76.

1969 classmates: Hector Leon, Fernando Hurtado, Bill Martin, Ray Elzy, Art and Betty Carrizoza, Lawana Zins, Marilyn Selchow, Sergio Mendez, Hector Salinas.
