Of Millis, passed away suddenly at his home on Friday, August 28, 2020. He was 81 years old.
Lewis was born in New York City on February 26, 1939 to the late Benjamin and Celia (Geller) Bergins.
He grew up in Long Beach and graduated from their public school system in 1956. Afterwards, he attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where, graduating in 1960, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering.
He put his degree to good use over the years, working for Raytheon, Incoterm, Microcom, and Mapletree Networks of which he was a founder, President and CEO. His work allowed him to travel quite a bit in Europe and Asia; one of his favorite places was Prague, in the Czech Republic.
Although he was a Massachusetts resident, Lewis was a lifelong Yankees fan, but he felt that was evened out as he was also a huge Patriots fan.
Lewis was preceded in death by his wife Connie (Cole) Bergins and his son Michael S. Bergins, and is survived by his daughter Deborah G. Bergins. Lewis is also survived by his brother Paul Bergins and his wife Joy of White Plains, New York, and his three nieces Jana Bergins of Great Barrington, MA, Pamela Bergins of White Plans, NY, and Toni Bergins of Springfield, MA, and his beloved Old English Sheepdog, Watson.
