After 27.5 years with American Family, Lewis has decided it is time to retire. His plans after retirement is to work a part-time hobby job that can occupy his time. American Family plans on bringing in a new full time agent to fill Lewis’ position. Lewis said, “I have always had three mottos: Service, service, service, and I could have never been able to stay in business as long as I have without the years of business from my customers. So thank you!”
