Christopher J. Lewis, 37, of Dalton, died Monday morning at VNA Hospice at Geisinger Community Medical Center. His wife of five years is Lisa Davies Lewis.

Born in Scranton, son of Robert and Deborah Ketcha Lewis, he graduated from Bishop O'Hara High School, class of 1994, and received a Bachelor of Science degree from Marywood University. Chris worked at Binghamton University for 10 years as senior assistant director of admissions. He was university center representative on the executive board of SUNYCAP and received several SUNYCAP achievement awards.

Chris worked as an enrollment services specialist at the admissions office at Penn State Worthington Scranton. In addition to his work, Chris wrote, implemented and assessed the campus grant run PAWS Program in collaboration with the NEIU. This program has converted and helped transition high school students to enroll at Penn State Worthington Scranton. Furthermore, due to his technology skills, he was asked to participate in the University's specilazed technology group. Chris was instrumental in developing the campus transfer/adult orientation.
