  • Private Celebration of Life.

To all of the family, friends and neighbors I extend my deepest sympathy. I have always been intrigued by mr. Lindy‘s creative and out-of-the-box thinking. For him to have created such a wonderful place for so many people to enjoy their life on Lewises islands. I remember going there before the were streets paved and picking blackberries on the riprap along the Burnside River. Thank you Mr. Lewis for being part of the history of Burnside. You will truly be missed. Wayne

I always admired Lindy as a friend, businessman, and customer. A great man who will be missed.

Dear Jean, Porky, Pam and Melinda, I’m so sorry to hear your loss of Lindy. It’s been years since we have seen one another! Even so, I have special memories of your dad and all of you growing up on Burnside Island. I’ve always cherished the love of your family, the numerous boat rides, crabbing and swimming, dance recitals and family dinners you so graciously included me in. Truly, Lindy and Jean were like a second set of parents to me during my tumultuous teenage years! You all were blessed to have such a great man as a devoted husband and father. I know he will be sorely missed. May God comfort you in the days ahead. Prayerfully, Debra Cox DeHart

Charles Lindberg Lewis (Lindy) passed away peacefully October 23, 2019.

Lindy was the owner of C. L. Lewis Construction Company until the late 1970’s. Successful projects included the excavation of roads, schools, Savannah Civic Center and Oglethorpe Mall in Savannah. His company’s best-known achievement was the development of Burnside Island where he lived since 1960.

Lindy, one of twelve children, was born October 13, 1928 in Islip, New York to William Mathias Anthony and Margaret McKenna Lewis. Lindy married the love of his life, Margaret Jean Bennett on August 6, 1951. They were inseparable for 68 years. His three children, Charles Lindberg Lewis, Jr. (Karen), Pamela Lewis Miltiades and Melinda Lewis were grateful they had the best father in the world. The joy of his life were his grandchildren, Charles Lindberg Lewis, III (Stephanie), Brandy Kristen Hilliard, and Kelly Lewis Sellers (Jonathan) and great-grandchildren, Stella and Charles Lindberg Lewis, IV, Jenci and Kinsley Gaudry, Charlotte and Henry Sellers.

Lindy will always be remembered for the love, support and time he had for his family. He was a member of St. James Catholic Church.

Lindy was preceded in death by his parents and his siblings, Frances Algio, Anita Smith, Dorothy Bostock, William “Bill”, Pearl “Peggy” Barbee, Earl, Eddie, Ray, Janet Wagoner and Kenneth. He is survived by his brother, Richard “Dickie” and many nieces and nephews.

The family will be holding a private celebration of his life.

Please send remembrances to the Alzheimer’s Association, 4849 Paulsen St., Savannah, GA 31405.
