Brick Lewis was born in Columbia, South Carolina and raised in the outskirts of Winnsboro, S.C. He is the son of Crosby and Cleo Lewis, a (semi-retired) attorney/legislator and homemaker. Brick graduated high school and continued his higher education at Lander University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. In June 2000 he married his wife Edith Ann Wells of Irmo, S.C. and they have two wonderful boys; Crosby and Wells.

 

He was employed by the City of Columbia for over 11 years in public safety rolls; most recently with the Columbia Fire Department before being hired as the Director of Administration for the Association in April 2018.  Brick enjoys traveling with his family or watching his youngest play for United Soccer and his oldest playing guitar and football for Chapin.  He also likes spending time in the great outdoors, whether it’s in the woods hunting or on the waters of Lake Murray.

 

Although Brick has stayed at a Holiday Inn he isn’t a firefighter, but he does have a bond with the fire service.  He understands the meaning of Brotherhood and wants to make a difference for the firefighters of South Carolina by keeping them informed and educated about the services, resources and training that are available to them from SCSFA.
