Obituary for Royce Clayton Lewis

Royce Clayton Lewis, a devoted husband, father, grandfather and faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, passed away Monday, December 21st at the age of 70. He is survived by his wife Patricia; his daughter Kathleen; his 6 sons, James and his wife Theresa, Michael, Wade and his wife Shoko, Jeremy and his wife Britney, Aaron and his wife Kimberly, and Hayes; his sister Dianne; his brother Douglas and his 13 grandchildren.

Royce was born and raised in Missoula Montana, the son of Eileene Stemple and Waldo Lewis. His early years were spent hunting, fishing, hiking and camping in the Montana wilderness. He joined the US Navy in October 1962 and went on to complete both electronics and submarine school. He became a qualified submariner and a second class petty officer serving on the submarine USS Volador until his honorable discharge in November 1966. Royce participated in Cold War operations and is a Vietnam Veteran.

Royce met and married his sweetheart Patricia Lambros while his boat was docked in San Francisco. Later they were sealed in the Mormon Temple in Idaho Falls, ID. Through good times and bad, Royce adored Pat and together they celebrated 50 years of marriage earlier this year. After getting married, they lived in San Francisco, San Diego and upon his discharge they moved to Missoula, Montana. Royce spent much of his early career in Montana working for Mountain States Telephone and US West, taking on assignments in Plains, Glendive and Great Falls.

Royce retired from the telephone company in 1995 and the family moved to Littleton, Colorado. He worked for several communication technology firms and ended up forming his own company, AcomaTech, which he operated until his passing.

Among the things in his life that he loved, Royce enjoyed all things technical, wood-working, reading good books, writing and spending time with his family. He adored his wife, children and grandchildren and often remarked on how he wished he had more time with each of them. His faith in Jesus Christ and his membership in the Mormon church were of significant importance to him. He served in various volunteer and leadership positions in that organization throughout his life. Even in his final days, he honored his role as the patriarch of his family, as he provided counsel to his children and grandchildren to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be consistent with personal prayer and scripture study.

The family would like to express deep appreciation to all his caregivers at Littleton Adventist and Porter Adventist hospitals as well as the members of the Littleton Ward, who visited him in his home and the hospital, and have offered thoughts, prayers and meals for the Lewis family, as well as provided assistance with the funeral service.
