On November 23, 1946 Billy Charles Lewis, Jr. “Butch Little Red) was born to Billy Charles Lewis, Sr. (Papa) and Mary Madelyn Hadley Lewis (Granny Mary) in Corsicana, Texas. He was an only child.

After high school he went into the U.S. Army and served in the Vietnam War. He left the army in 1972 and later met Wanda O’Pry in the late 70’s. They were married on August 5, 1977 and were married over 40 years. They had one son together, Scotty Lewis.
His career started as a mechanic at Tom White Chevrolet in the late 70’s. Billy started driving trucks across the country as a team driver with Wanda until his retirement.
