Paul Lewis, 86, of Wyndmoor, a longtime counselor at Community College of Philadelphia, died Thursday, June 5, of complications from dementia at Gwynedd Square Nursing Center.
Mr. Lewis was born in Philadelphia and raised in Jenkintown. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps when he was 17, although induction took place a year later. After being honorably discharged, he attended Temple University on the G.I. Bill, earning a bachelor of science degree in business administration.
He worked in private industry and for the City of Philadelphia's Personnel Department for a total of 10 years. But, wanting to change careers, he returned to Temple to earn a master's degree in psychology.
