With the four year anniversary of TapouT co-founder Charles “Mask” Lewis’ passing, his sister Carla held a candle light vigil to honor his memory. It occurred at the wreckage site from where he was killed when a drunk driver hit his car.
Every year since the March 2009 accident, Carla comes to warn others from morning until night of the dangers of drinking and driving.
Lewis’ car was slammed into a light pole that killed him instantly.
The driver, Jeffrey David Kirby, was convicted on a felony charge of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. In February 2010, he faced a maximum sentence of 13 years in prison, but was given nine.
