Fred Lewis

Colorado resident Fred Lewis spent his early years in the US Air Force, becoming its boxing champ and one of a small handful to have knocked down the great Muhammad Ali.

Although ultimately losing his fight with Ali by a single point, Fred never stopped being a heavy hitter. Moving to Colorado Springs in ’69, he established a boxing club called 3D. Those D’s stood for desire, discipline and dedication, three qualities that spread into Fred’s other calling; fighting the Lord’s fight.

Ordained as a minister in ’75, this Preacher was never content to let the crowds flock to the church, instead taking his message on the road in the form of selected scriptures painted across the side of his pickup truck.

That’s why we chose hard-hitting Fred ‘The Preacher’ Lewis to grace our smooth Cream Soda cans and bottles.
