Everything everyone has previously said in the guestbook I heartily second...He impacted my scholastic, professional, personal life to a degree even, like no other non-family member....6 courses with him...I'd have taken more if able. Humorous, witty, kind, such a hard worker..he will be sorely missed. All my best to his family.

Dr Lewis was an incredibly gifted, passionate, and engaging teacher who had a profound impact on the way I view the physical and human landscape. He and his contributions to education will be greatly missed.

Dr. Lewis was an inspiration to me as an undergraduate at PSU from 1980-1982.He opened my eyes to the potential geography careers around me as well as the world as a whole. He will truly be missed. Rest in Peace.

I owe a huge personal, intellectual, and professional debt to Peirce. As my doctoral adviser in the 1980s, he was a sage guide, a rigorous critic, and a remarkable inspiration.

Peirce continues to have a profound influence on me as a geographer, a teacher, and a person. He may be gone, but I know that some small part of him lives on in my own work, and particularly in my teaching. My sincere condolences to Felicia, Hugh and the rest of the family.

Peirce Lewis was a remarkable man. I met him as a graduate student in geography at the University of Minnesota, and he provided both inspiration and real help in my doctoral work. Though I left academic geography not long after earning my PhD, the lessons I learned from Dr. Lewis have remained with me all my life.

By coincidence, I am spending this week (February 26-March 2) teaching in the College of Communications at Penn State, and I thought of him many times as I made my way around the campus and across this part of the Commonwealth.

His was was a life well lived. May he rest in peace.

Peirce Lewis was, and continues to be, my inspiration. He was a great teacher who taught me the joy of reading the cultural landscape--something I try to pass on to my students. His enthusiasm and passion was remarkable. A true scholar, a caring person.

The Pierce Lewis Family.

Wanted you to know that about 30 years ago I was fortunate enough to acquire Dr. Lewis's wonderful Steinway Piano on which I have taught many students from 5 to 85 to play. What a privilege it has been! My prayers are with you.

God Bless

Dr. Lewis was one of the best professors I had at THE Pennsylvania State University .... he showed me the importance of The Christian Science Monitor as text book for the history and geography of international affairs, his explaination of the "3 ways to make rain" was something I used as a teacher in the secondary school classroom, his explaination of the "sheer geography" of how Chicago, "a location of terrible site and situation", came to be was another lesson that I've carried with me all these years, and his general enthusiasm and passing for teaching the geography of international affairs was not only entertaining, it was well worth the tuition I paid for my undergraduate education ..... Dr. Lewis, may you Rest In Peace after a job WELL DONE in the classroom !!!

Pierce's teaching added immeasurably to the quality of my life. Even now, as I prepare to travel to the southwest, I am pulling out my Raisz Map, an intellectual gift from Pierce. My geography education in the Master's program at PSU was outstanding, but nothing gave me a lifelong appreciation for the landscape like Peirce's Classes did. Condolences to Felicia and Hugh. May his memory be a blessing.

Peirce was a wonderful man who leaves a remarkable legacy in State College and beyond.
