Owens Photo: Lewis Marnell Tribute

After hearing the horrible news this past week about Lewis passing away due to complications from his Type 1 diabetes, I’ve been thinking about him a lot and thought I’d would just do a little post with some photos that I shot of him on a 2010 Volcom trip to Sydney. This was the only time I spent any real time with Lewis, so I feel fortunate to have gotten a small taste of the positive energy that Lewis possessed. He made us listen to reggae constantly in the van while he was riding shotgun and I hate reggae but it was alright because Lewis ruled. He was a genuine and very humble guy that I felt immediately close to, like we had been friends for a long time. I still can’t believe that Lewis is gone. My thoughts go out to all of friends, families and fans around the world. You will be missed brother. R.I.P. Lewis Marnell 1983-2013.—Jaime Owens
