Benjamin Dane Lewis fulfilled his earthly mission peacefully March 30, 2023 at the family home in Kill Devil Hills. He was 40 years old at the time of his untimely passing. Dane, as he was best known, was born in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

A graduate of Massaponax High School, Dane was handsome, stylish, a dedicated student, and a popular athlete. He was also humorous and witty and a master of the quick comeback. After high school, Dane tried out his wings and left Fredericksburg. Over the years, he learned many skills, took college classes, and practiced various trades.

Eventually, Dane moved to the Outer Banks which he loved since he was a small child. Here, Dane was a valued member with the Sound Feet Shoes team. He enjoyed matching his customers with their perfect shoe. Dane made many friends throughout his sales career. At work or at play, Dane lit up any room he entered.
