In his early years, Lewis Sr. worked for the railroad and the family moved back and forth between Brownwood, Texas and Clovis, New Mexico as his father's job required. Lewis was drafted into World War II in January of 1945, and served in the Army in the Pacific area following Japan's surrender. Upon his return to Texas in October of 1946, he enrolled in Daniel Baker College, where he graduated in 1952 with a Bachelor of Science in Education. Subsequently, Lewis attended Howard Payne College, graduating with a Master's of Education in 1956.

Lewis and Helen then moved to Houston, Texas, where Lewis began a 32-year career at Woodland Acres Middle School in the Galena Park School District. Known to all as "Coach Ray," he taught 8th grade math and coached football, girls and boys basketball, and track. When he retired, Lewis said that of all he had accomplished in his 32 years of teaching and coaching, he was proudest of his having taught all three of his daughters, and his teams winning two Girls Basketball District Championships.
Following his retirement in 1992, Lewis and Helen returned to Hamilton, Texas, where they enjoyed spending time with their extended family, their children, and their grandchildren.
