The family has sold shirts emblazoned with with M.R. Ducks dating back to 1983, according to a 1992 Daily Times report. The name M.R. Ducks alludes to a poem on a conversation between two duck hunters, “M.R. Ducks, M.R. not” (“Them are ducks”).

Lewis and his wife, Gail, first opened a gazebo bar without a name in 1982, The Daily Times reported in 2004. The business would later take the name M.R. Ducks after the poem, which the couple trademarked in the bar’s early years.
