Donald Leon "Don" Lozow

Don Lozow journeyed to his next destination on April 12, 2019. Don was born in Providence, Rhode Island on April 9, 1932 to Myer and Rose Lozow. He and his family then moved to Gary, Indiana. Don attended Indiana University, where he was a walk-on player for their basketball team, rode in the first Little 500 Bicycle Race, and was elected the treasurer of his senior class, all while working his way through school. Don met Janey Atler at IU and they married on August 28,1954. They were elated when their first child, Tarri, was born in 1955. Don joined the U.S. Air Force and became a pilot. After completing his tour of duty, they returned to Indiana, where Don entered law school. The family then moved to Janey's hometown, Denver, Colorado.

Don became a licensed attorney in Colorado in 1959. He practiced law for 60 years, primarily in the criminal defense area. Those who knew him or worked against him knew that he was a fearless adversary in the courtroom. Many aspiring law students watched and learned from attending his trials. One of Don's greatest joys was practicing law with his son, Brad, and daughter, Suzie.

Don's accomplishments are too many to list, but they include serving as president of a B'nai B'rith chapter and serving on the board of the American Medical Center. He played competitive tennis and was an avid marathon runner and all-around athlete. Most important, Don dearly loved his family and friends.

Don is survived by his beloved wife of almost 65 years, Janey Ader Lozow; his children, Tarri Cleveland (Doug), Brad Lozow (Karen), and Suzie Lozow (Bill Cimler); and his grandchildren, Parker Cleveland (Kelley), Emily Lozow, and Jake Lozow. He was predeceased by his parents and brother, Seymour Lozow (Joyce), and is survived by his siblings Carline Schuham (Steven) and Gary Lozow (Joyce); Janey's brother, Larry Atler (Marilyn); and many nieces and nephews.
