Lewis “Dene” was born in High Point, NC. Upon completion of high school, he entered the US Navy, serving proudly during various military conflicts; including Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

Upon his retirement from the US Navy, he returned to Bryan and had been employed by St Joseph Regional Health System, Tenaska Frontier, and Werner Enterprise.

He fought a brave and courageous battle with cancer, never complaining and maintained his positive attitude to the very end.

While still on cancer treatments, he achieved his lifelong dream of driving in the NASCAR Driving Experience at Texas Motor Speedway.

His family, NASCAR Racing, and fishing were a few of the many things he enjoyed. He took great pride in building and racing lawn mowers, earning several LSMRA State Championships.

His is preceded in death by his grandparents, and his sisters Carol and Glenda.

He is survived by the love of his life, Bonnie; his children, Janalee Seefeldt of College Station, Daniel Driggers of Wheelock, Joni (John) Kocher of Spring; Alma (Cisco) Jimenez of Pflugerville; grandchildren Mackenzie Driggers, Clayton and Carson Kocher, and Xavier and AJ Jimenez; his parents Roy and Sandra Oliver of Bryan; his brother Jimmy Driggers of Bryan, Lisa Dowdall of Temple.

He proved on a daily basis that blood doesn’t make you a family. A special thanks to our Hospice Angel, Laurie.

  1. The family is in our thoughts and prayers. Lewis was a man with a heart of gold and will be greatly missed!

  2. Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of Mr. Driggers. Daniel, Chenae and Mackenzie are very special to me, and I am saddened by their loss of father, father-in-law and grandfather, respectively. God bless you all at this time. Most sincerely, Sheryl Ruffino and Family

  3. We are so saddened by the passing of Dene. We grew up like brothers instead of cousins. He was such a great guy. I can honestly say I never remember having cross words with Dene while growing up or as adults. That’s the kind of person he was. He will be greatly missed. Praying for peace and comfort for all of the family.

  4. We were saddened to learn about Dene’s passing. He was a kind man and loved life. We first met him when he coached a Little League team in which our son, Matthew, played on.

    May you find comfort knowing that he is no longer suffering. May God wrap his loving arms around you and bring you peace and comfort as you go on your own personal grief journey.
