Lewis was a proud member of the US Navy and Marine Corp for 8 years of active service before being honorably discharged as a Korean War Veteran. Lewis worked as a teacher for Scotch Plains School District for over 30 years before his retirement in 1994. He was endearingly known as “Mr. Cos” by his students.

An avid NY Yankee and Giants fan, Lewis had many interests and hobbies. He was very interested in archery and was a competitive powerlifter for many years. He enjoyed all types of gardening with great harvests of figs, tomatoes, and grapes. He had a keen interest for fitness, nutrition and holistic medicine. He developed a wealth of knowledge in these areas which he used to help many family members & friends. Lewis also loved animals and was very proud of his cocker spaniel champion show dog, Cleo.

He was also a patron of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Sierra Club and a member of St. Joseph’s Church in Bound Brook. He participated in many other cultural and artistic endeavors. He was a true Renaissance Man.

Most importantly he cherished spending quality time with his family. He will be missed tremendously by all who knew & loved him.
