I knew Glen in Stamford. He was a class ahead of me. I remember him as a heck of a football player. I also played poker with him, frequently at my house when my parents were out of town. He and his buddy Paul Phy would sometimes play bridge against me and Johnny Webb (also deceased). We had a rollicking time. Glen was a fun very intelligent guy.

Glen Edward Lewis, MD, 80, of Houston, Texas, a retired urologist with Memorial Hermann Hospital System, died peacefully Saturday, July 18, 2015 at home two years after being diagnosed with congenital heart failure.
Glen was born in Stamford, Texas in 1934 to parents, Byron and Laura Middleton Lewis. He resided in Stamford until entering college at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He attended medical school at Baylor University in Houston, Texas where he received his medical doctorate. Glen served as a medical doctor in the United States Air Force in 1961 and was stationed in Sidi Slimane, Morocco, where he and his wife, Jan, were married.
Glen returned to Dallas, Texas in 1963 to begin his residency at The Veterans Hospital. He also did a rotation at Parkland Hospital. They moved to Houston in 1966 to open his first private medical practice as part of the Clinic of the Southwest. He had many fine business partners in his long career, including Dr. Raymond Witt and Dr. William Franklin. For many years, he traveled to Wharton, Texas weekly to practice at the Outlar Blair Clinic.
Glen was a member of the Harris County Medical Society, American Urology Association, and the Doctor’s Club of Houston. He was also a member of the Knights of the Vine Wine Tasting Club.
Glen was the first of his ancestors to attend college, a lifelong dream for his parents. As a youth, he picked cotton in the summers to help contribute to the family purse. He was a dutiful son, taking excellent care of his parents. He and a partner purchased a beautiful farm in Pledger, Texas where their families grew expansive gardens, rode horses, worked cattle, enjoyed hunting and being outdoors. He also loved the bay and trips to Galveston and Mexico to fish and take in the sun.
Glen and Jan were avid travelers, seeking interesting destinations. One of their favorite destinations was South Africa where they enjoyed photographic safaris. They also travelled regularly to see the solar eclipse.
Glen was jovial, happy and ready to enjoy an interesting conversation. He had a fascination with history.
Most importantly, Glen believed his two daughters could do anything. He gave them courage and kindness and was always there when they had setbacks. He was the guiding light in their lives demonstrating the American Dream each day. If a “poor kid” from Stamford could be a surgeon and save lives and make a difference, then his children could surely do more. Many nights were spent eating ice cream in the middle of the night with him advising on life. He gave his girls everything a father could give and then, just a little bit more.
Glen is survived by his wife, Jeanette (Jan) Dilger Lewis, his two daughters and their families, Mr. and Mrs. John Cary (Renee Lewis) and Mr. and Mrs. John Brandon Blossman (Michelle Lewis). His grandchildren, Lila Cary, Blake and Bronwynn Blossman and finally, by his dear cousin, Jim Gammage.
Our family wishes to thank Emma Hull and the many caregivers at St. Luke’s Hospital and to Dr. Lockhart and team at VantageHospice for their heroic efforts over the past couple years in trying to maintain a higher quality of life for our father.
Friends are cordially invited to a Celebration of Life reception with the family from four o’clock in the afternoon until six o’clock in the evening on Wednesday, July 22, at the Bradshaw-Carter Home, 1734 W. Alabama Street in Houston. Online tributes may be posted at www.bradshawcarter.com.
In lieu of customary remembrances, memorial contributions may be directed to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, PO Box 20070, Houston, TX 77225.
