Sharon Carr Lewis passed from this world, into heaven, on Oct. 31, 2021, at 77 years old. She was born on July 24, 1944, and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida.

She was a fifth-generation Floridian of notable Southern heritage. Her great-grandfather, Norman Fitzhugh, was a steamboat captain on Florida waterways. She graduated from Mainland High School in 1962.

Sharon grew up in a law-enforcement family. Her father was a retired Captain from the Daytona Beach Police Department and Volusia County Sheriff’s Department and Chief Security officer at the Daytona Beach International Speedway. Her husband is a retired Florida Highway Patrol Trooper.

Sharon was a dedicated wife and mother above all else. She devoted her life to her family, treasuring her children and embracing every moment she was given with them. She especially loved her role as a nana.

She is predeceased by her father and mother, Charles and Norma Carr; brother, Walter Carr; and sister, Alice Carr Slack.

Sharon is survived by her husband of 57 years, William Chapman Lewis III; and three children, William Chapman “Butch” Lewis IV, Katherine Lewis Waters and Warren Alec Lewis; her seven grandchildren, Kallie, Rebecca, Morgan, Savanna, Clay, Brooke and Billie; and six great-grandchildren. The love she had for each and every one of them was indescribable.

She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

In lieu of flowers, please send recognition gifts to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Graveside services will be held at Daytona Memorial Park, Bellevue Avenue, Daytona Beach, Florida, at 11 a.m. Nov. 20, 2021.
