Condolence: I was in his group in school at A level in Aberdare, Wales in the late 1950s. He was 'Brighteyes' to us. It is good to see all the lovely tributes to him from people he taught.

Condolence: Condolences to his family and friends. I only did one math course with him at MUN, but when I saw his name in the Telegram, I recalled him as a good teacher, friendly, and interested in helping his students. Rest In Peace.

Condolence: We were surprised and deeply saddened to learn of Mel’s passing today. I and other members of our family were fortunate to have been students of Mel in Mathematics and in life. Not only did he excel in his teaching but he also took a real interest in the well being of his students which went well beyond the classroom and lasted through decades.
Mel made significant positive contributions to thousands of students and to our University and the Province. He is remembered with great fondness and admiration and will be sorely missed.

Condolence: I am deeply saddened to hear of Dr. Lewis’ passing. He was an amazing professor and person. He saw the best in me at a low point in my life. He believed in my abilities when a lot of people, including myself, doubted them. I would not be where I am today without his help and support during my post-secondary education. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

Condolence: Melvyn we only had a month to get to know you while you were in Australia but found a person with a great dedication and sense of humour. We had a few laughs and were often reminded that you were a doctor. RIP

Condolence: For a couple of years I avoided a math course at University. After getting to a point where I could no longer do that, I signed up for a course and had the good fortune to have Dr. Lewis as my prof. He was fantastic: clear, helpful and funny. I got an A! I often think of the difference he made to me.
