Matthew D. Lewis

Matthew D. Lewis of Throop, formerly of Scranton, died Monday at Geisinger Community Medical Center. His wife is the former Allison Kuehner.

Born in Scranton, son of David R. and Minnie Farino Lewis, he graduated from Scranton High School. He attended East Stroudsburg University and worked in property management.

Matthew was a kind and generous person. He loved spending time outdoors hiking, golfing and skiing. He especially loved being at the beach digging for "wampum."
