Last goodbye for Butch Lewis

Aug 02, 2011

WILMINGTON — A month before his death, boxing promoter Ronald “Butch” Lewis hosted a grand, weekend-long 65th birthday party for himself at his waterfront mansion in Bethany Beach.

Friends like actor Denzel Washington, musician Lenny Kravitz and Sen. Tom Carper were there and The O’Jays played under a 120-foot tent until 2:30 a.m., followed by a late-night meal of chicken and waffles.
