Lewis attended James River High School in Chesterfield where family and friends remember him as a loving and caring young man.

"He cared about all of his friends and family and anyone else that needed him. He stood up for the ones he loved too. He was loved and cared about by his peers, and all of his family," brother Darron Lewis said. "He was a good friend and the best little brother I could ask for. He is loved and missed."

Lewis called for a stop to "senseless" youth violence.

The family has set up a GoFundMeto help with burial costs.
