The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, President of the House of Deputies of the Episcopal Church, released the following statement:

"We are sad to share the news that the Rev. Dr. Harold T. Lewis, former deputy from the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh and stalwart leader of faithful Episcopalians in that diocese, died this morning. 

"In 2012, President Jennings awarded the Rev. Dr. Lewis the House of Deputies Medal, telling him that he had earned “the everlasting respect and gratitude of the House of Deputies and, indeed, the entire Episcopal Church, for your steadfast loyalty to the Constitution and Canons and the traditions and polity of the Episcopal Church, along with your work to preserve the Diocese of Pittsburgh for loyal and faithful Episcopalians. Through your leadership here in Pittsburgh and your service as a deputy to General Convention, we have seen anew how our church’s witness can proclaim the Good News to all of God’s people.”
The Rev. Dr. Lewis is pictured here in 2019 with his beloved wife, Claudette, and Deputy Debra Bennett of Ohio. May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
