His service was held in Troy, Alabama at Troy University where he spent most of his childhood. He was remembered by his friends and family. There were several tributes made towards the representative.

His body was carried through the iconic Edmund Pettus Bridge where he helped lead voting demonstrators back on March 7, 1965 protest their voting rights. Rose petals were scattered along the bridge to show the blood spilled there back in the 60’s. Monday & Tuesday Lewis will spend time at the U.S. Capitol while respects are being paid.

Despite of COVID-19 people still made sure to come out and pay their respects respectfully with their mask on. Inside the memorial service people even practiced social distancing. Lewis is well known for the continuing work he has done for the black community and will be deeply missed.
