June 6, 1935 — June 2, 2024


Mr. Lewis Edward Carney was born June 6, 1935, in Port Royal Tennessee; near the Clarksville, Tennessee area.  He was the son of two lovely parents:  Mr. Herbert Carney, Sr. and Sallie Ann Carney.


Lewis attended school in Montgomery County, near Clarksville, Tennessee, and night school at Attucks in Indianapolis, Indiana.  


He became a skilled bricklayer, and later he became a Masonry Sub Contractor.  He bricked many houses throughout Indiana.

In 1971 Lewis got to know Jehovah; he dedicated his life and was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.   As time passed he became an elder in the Congregation.  During his life as a Christian, he went to his first quick build in Marion, Indiana.  He thoroughly enjoyed working on theocratic projects and had the privilege to lay bricks on over 38 Kingdom Halls.  And during the course of his life, he was a member of several different congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses such as Glendale, North, College Park, Meridian, and Kessler Congregations.
