Age 71, of Pittsburgh, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, October 17, 2023.  Beloved husband of 50 years to his high school sweetheart, Christine (Casey) Lewis; devoted father of Amy (Bill) Kelly, Casey (Eric) Stewart, and Chuck (Gretchen) Lewis; adored “Poppy” of Gabrielle, Taylor, Charles, Cullen, Shane, and Santino; son of the late Charles and Mary (Doyle) Lewis; and loving brother of Mary Kay (the late Ed) Sullivan, David (Debra) Lewis, and James Lewis. 

Known as “Charlie” to his brother firefighters, he proudly served on the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire from 1975 to 2005 earning the rank of Captain.  He served as an Instructor at the Training Academy for many years before retiring at Engine 29.  In retirement, he continued instructing local fire departments through Allegheny County Fire Department and CCAC.
