Zachary Tyler Lewis, age 30, of Martinsburg, W. Va., died Thursday, April 7, 2022, in Buckhannon, W. Va. He was born July 14, 1991, in Clarksburg, W. Va., a son of Tim and Bev Smith Lewis, who survive of Buckhannon.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his partner, Melissa English, of Martinsburg; one daughter, Teagan Rose Lewis, of Martinsburg; one son, Everett Mark Lewis, of Martinsburg; one sister, Erica Baker and husband Nick, of Wexford, Pa.; one brother, Nathan Lewis and girlfriend Stephanie Armentrout, of Junior, W. Va.; three nieces: Delaney Lewis, of Weston, W.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Ped and Millie Lewis; and maternal grandfather, Loyle Thomas Smith.
Zach attended West Virginia University and worked in the oil and gas industry. He had just accepted a new position for the City of Martinsburg and recently closed on his new home. He was excited to be opening a new chapter of his life after years of hard work.
He grew up attending the Tallmansville Baptist Church. He loved to be outside fishing, hiking and exploring. Zach could master a new hobby in days, sometimes hours, and was always learning something new. He loved to travel and had an amazing sense of adventure that he surely imparted on Teagan and Everett. Above all, Zach was a compassionate, loyal friend and a devoted, loving father. The ache left by his loss is only comforted by the blessing of knowing his warm and caring soul.
Friends will be received Saturday, April 16, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Tallmansville Baptist Church in Tallmansville, W. Va. A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. at the church with Rev.
