The Allegheny County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) paid homage to the life and achievements of Deputy Sheriff Mark Lewis, who lost his life suddenly on July 4, 2017 from a brain aneurysm. His family was presented with the Career Service Award in honor of the deputy's 24 years of dedication, loyalty, and service to the sheriff's office.

The Mark Lewis Award was created by the Deputy Sheriffs Association in honor of Deputy Sheriff Mark Lewis.

Deputy Lewis was a graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School before joining the ACSO on May 27, 1993. He is most known for his work with investigations and transportation, as well as instructing training officers at the Allegheny County Police Training Academy. Deputy Lewis left a positive impact on many current officers and deputies who worked with him and trained alongside him. Outside the ACSO, Deputy Lewis also mentored teenagers in his hometown, West Elizabeth.

As another means to honor Lewis, the Deputy Sheriffs Association also introduced a new award, titled the Mark Lewis Award. It will be given to an officer who proves to be exemplary in his or her duties. Deputy Lewis's wife, Lynn Lewis, stated, “I am so honored and humbled to know that Mark Lewis will never be forgotten in the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office.”

Deputy Sheriff Barb Sparrow was the first recipient to receive the Mark Lewis Award. It was noted that her unwavering dedication to the sheriff's office and compassion for all deputies made her eligible for the award.
