Scott (John Scott) Lewis, age 61, of Austin, TX embarked onto the next part of his journey, on May 4, 2017. He was born to the late John and Carroll Lewis on March 24, 1956 in Alexandria, VA. Scott was first and foremost, a man of deep faith and integrity, and lived his life as a loving husband, father, son, brother and good neighbor to all. He was always the first person in any group to ask, "How can I help?". Scott was truly loved within the special needs community of Austin, and he could always be counted on to lend a hand and offer a supportive word to anyone in need. He always had his mechanical pencil and tool box ready, in the event something needed to be done, and he selflessly jumped into action whenever he heard someone say, "Scott Lewis can do it!". Scott had no detractors in his encounters, and his caring nature and enthusiastic service to his fellowman led to numerous close friendships with many fine people. Scott was tireless in his desire to lighten the loads of others, and he was a man of great humor, whose presence always lifted the spirits of those around him. Scott worked for over 30 years at the Titan Corporation and BAE Systems, as a System Engineer and Project Leader on multiple development programs for the US military. He provided an unsurpassed level of technical expertise in countermine-neutralizing technology, and he also served as the principal test engineer on numerous ordnance programs, as well as a major chemical-agent detection program for our armed forces. More importantly, Scott's enthusiasm, productiveness, and the quality of his work, set a high standard of performance throughout his career. He was an individual who could always be counted on to pull many times his own weight in whatever task he tackled. Scott's technical skills, along with his openness and honesty, were valued not only by his coworkers, but were respected by many of the company's customers and contractors, as well. But while his influence grew throughout his career, his door always remained open to anyone who needed advice-be it technical or personal. For above all, Scott was a true friend to anyone who needed one, and he could always be counted on to lend an ear and offer a helping hand. While Scott was honored to contribute his intellect, and devote his stamina and talents to his profession, Scott adored his family, and his noblest calling in life was being the best father his children could ever hope for, as well as being a most loving and devoted husband. Scott was true and kind to all he met, a person of the world who always saw the bright side of life, and one who found meaning, purpose and comfort in our Lord. Scott is survived by his loving wife, Janette Lewis of Austin, TX, and his four children: the light of his life, Joshua Paul Lewis, treasured daughter Jennifer (Joel) Aguilar, cherished sons Thomas (Evelyn) Delaney and Eric (Christi) Williams. He was exceedingly proud of his grandchildren and relished time spent with them. It was his joy to be "Gramps" to Hannah Elise Aguilar, Isabella Aguilar, Taylor Hoover-Hart, Cameron Williams and Owen Williams.

Memorial Services will be conducted at 2:00 P.M. in the afternoon on Saturday, the 3rd of June 2017, at Cook Walden Funeral Home, 6100 North Lamar Blvd, Austin, Texas 78752.
