It was inspiring to know Lou Lowenstein, and a great privilege to have him as a colleague, mentor, and friend. Lou was proof of the idea that there is no necessary correlation between excellence and ego, and that the highest of achievers can be the sweetest and most decent of people. Lou's intellect and character were the gold standard. He had a brilliant analytical mind, exceptionally good judgment, a tireless work ethic, and ironclad integrity. He was forceful when he needed to be, but only when he needed to be. Lou had a warm and generous spirit, always cheerful, attentive, and thoroughly understated. His extraordinary talents inspired the deepest admiration, and his warmth and decency inspired the deepest affection.
