The SSDI [Social Security Deah Index] located at home page of www.rootsweb.com
Lewis F Waddell b. 21 Aug 1910 d. 22 Sep 1997 last residence Columbia, Richland Co. SC. I do not have access to the The State newspaper.
I checked Obituary Daily Times also located at homepage of rootsweb but did not see Lewis.
I looked at Spartanburg area obits for 1997 at the followinghttp://www.infodepot.org/kroom.htm
There were some Waddell's listed but did not see Lewis
Could this be your Lewis?
