Daniel K. Lewis, age 66, of 174 Wemple Rd. Stephentown, N.Y., died March 26th. He was born in Pittsfield, Feb. 23, 1952, the son of the late Ronald and Edna Kelly Lewis. He was educated in the local schools and was a 1970 graduate of Mt. Greylock Regional High School. Employed in the generator assembly at the General Electric Co. for a total of 39 years, he began his career in the Pittsfield plant and in 1990, transferred to the Schenectady plant. Dan retired from there in 2010. He enjoyed camping in the Lake George area as well as other camp grounds here in New England. When camping, he always loved a big bon fire. A huge fan of drag racing, he followed his favorite NHRA Funny Car driver, John Force. Dan enjoyed riding his Kawasaki motor cycles over the years and cherished his 1968 Silver Blue Camaro. It could be said that he “knew what the gas pedal was used for.” A tinkerer around cars and his home, he rebuilt his former home in Hinsdale prior to moving to Stephentown. Most recently, he loved to walk the family dog, “Ruby,” their miniature pinscher.
Dan is survived by his wife, the former Lynda Bouchard Lewis, with whom he would have celebrated their 42nd anniversary this July 23rd.
