Lewis Drexil Wofford Obituary

Our beloved brother Lewis Drexil Wofford passed from this earth on Saturday, May 7th, 2016 at Southwest Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Lewis had reached the age of 21.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 10, 2016 at the First Osage Baptist Church in Fairfax with Rev. George Weston officiating. Arrangements are under the direction of Hunsaker-Wooten Funeral Home of Fairfax, OK.

Lewis was born in Ponca City, OK on August 13, 1994 to Hillary Dawn Drexil and Stanley ”Tony” Smith. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Francis and Bobbie Drexil, parents Hillary and Stanley, and one brother Gregory Wofford.

Lewis is survived by his sister Elizabeth Irons of Oklahoma City, brother Nathaniel (Alex) Wofford of Stillwater, brother Jonas Shunkamolah of Pawnee, cousin Junitress Freeman of Hominy, uncle John and aunt Faith Drexil of Fairfax, aunt Adrienne Drexil of Tulsa, aunt Kim, uncle Don, and cousin Megan Medley of Missouri, and a host of other friends and relatives.

Lewis attended high school at Woodland High in Fairfax as well as Jenks High School where he lived with his Aunt Adrienne. Lewis got in touch with his artistic abilities while at Jenks and learned to love drawing and pottery. He was also in Boy Scouts in his younger years.

Lewis was a proud Osage and Pawnee tribal member, and was eager to learn more about his cultural traditions and heritage.

Lewis enjoyed playing video games in his spare time. He also loved to eat! He was a fan of the OU Sooners and Oklahoma City Thunder. He was also a big fan of wrestling thanks to his brothers Alex and Greg. Lewis liked listening to all kinds of music and would often be seen with his earphones in, jamming to his favorite YouTube videos.
Lewis was a happy guy and would usually be seen laughing and smiling. He made friends wherever he went and people loved to be around him. We will cherish the great memories we had with him and he will live on through those memories.

The family of Lewis would like to thank everyone who sent kind words and condolences during this difficult time. May God Bless You All!
