Speaker Armstead Statement on Passing of Delegate Tony Lewis

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- House Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, issued the following statement on the passing of Delegate Tony Lewis, R-Preston, who died today following a battle with cancer.

"I am so very sad to learn of Tony's passing," Speaker Armstead said. "Tony was a true West Virginian and patriot. He served for 26 years in the West Virginia National Guard, and fought for our country during tours of duty in Operation Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom. He was a devoted family man, and a faithful and hard-working public servant. Tony's dedication and work ethic left a lasting impression on all of us who worked with him. His strong character was never more apparent than during the recent special session, as Tony continued to come to Charleston and speak up for his district while receiving treatment for his cancer. Anna and I extend our heartfelt prayers to Tony's wife Lyndia and his entire family during this difficult time. Tony earned the greatest respect and admiration of all his colleagues and he will truly be missed as both a legislator and a friend."
