So sorry to learn of Lewis' passing. I haven't been in touch with Lewis since high school, but I remember him well as a classmate and part of Bensalem's graduation class in 1964. Very nice person. It was amazing to read about his life's accomplishments and family. Condolences go out to Lewis' family and friends. Another person is gone from our tightly-knit graduation class. Plans are in progress to celebrate our 60th Reunion this year. Lewis will be missed.

Lewis was a nice person and treated everyone with respect. I often visited the Feasterville Post Office where he worked and, if not too busy, would have a small chat. Sorry to hear of your passing. Condolences to your family.

His name didn't ring a bell in my head ... but as soon as I saw his picture I remembered him from grade school. A really nice and friendly guy. I can see how he became the most popular clerk at the PO. RIP Lou and condolences to the family.
