Chick-fil-A creates 'missing man table' for fallen deputy
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Orange County Deputy First Class Norm Lewis loved Chick-fil-A, so much so that he visited the University Boulevard location once or twice a week for years.
The 11-year veteran of the Orange County Sheriff's Office and motorcycle deputy died while helping hunt down a man suspected of killing Master Sgt. Debra Clayton, an officer with the Orlando Police Department.
His death has devastated lots of people, including staff at his favorite Chick-fil-A, where it hit them especially hard. To honor their friend, they have created a tribute they call the "Missing Man Table."
"I turned on the TV, and I couldn't believe it. I just started bawling," said Beth Ivey, a restaurant employee. "I can't believe I won't see him ever again. It doesn't seem real."
