He was born on March31, 1941 in Port Chester, New York to Alice Ferris Lewis and Charles O. Lewis.

Charles – Danny to his friends, Poppy to his family – had a lifelong career as a Union Electrician, last with IBEW Local #3 in New York.

After successfully raising a family he was gifted with a happy retirement chasing the elusive white ball and the 300 game in bowling. He and his lifetime companion Andrea, traveled extensively on their trips back and forth from Greenwich to the golf courses of The Villages. He was fortunate to be able to devote his life to family and many close friends. His easy smile and calm nature will be missed by all whose lives he was a part of.
