He enjoyed trapping and tanning hides, collecting arrow heads, rocks and pocket knives. Lewis loved taking things apart to see how they worked. He liked to read about American history, listen to country music, watch westerns and write in his journals. He also liked to garden and raise oxen and goats. He was almost never without a dog and had several pets over the years. Lewis had strong opinions and wrote to the editor several times in the local paper about local concerns.
