“He was my hero,”his wife Janey said. “I always told him how lucky I was to be his wife.”
Devoted to his clients, Mr. Lozow was often a feared adversary in the courtroom, the family said.
“Many aspiring laws students watched and learned from attending his trials.”
Mr. Lozow was born April 9, 1932, in Providence, Rhode Island to Myer and Rose Lozow. The family moved to Gary, Ind.
A student at Indiana University, he was a walk-on player for the basketball team, rode in the first Little 500 Bicycle Race and was treasurer of his senior class.
Mr. Lozow met Janey Atler of Denver in college. They married on Aug. 28, 1954.
After completing his tour of duty as a US Air Force pilot, he returned to Indiana U, earned his JD and moved to Denver.
“One of Don’s greatest joys was practicing law with his son Brad and daughter Suzie,” the family said.
In addition to his numerous accomplishments, Mr. Lozow was president of his B’nai B’rith chapter and served on the board of AMC.
A marathon runner and all-around athlete, he played competitive tennis.
The family is especially grateful to Advanced Healthcare of Aurora and The Denver Hospice at Lowry.
“His most important success was his love of family and friends,” his family said.
“He was our hero, and will be greatly missed.”
