Obituary

Lowell Harold Klosky, 80, of Carlsbad, CA, died June 13, 2019, at home.

A beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, mensch, Lowell was born in 1938 in Brooklyn, NY. He grew up there and was one of the many successful graduates of Erasmus Hall public high school. He had a great talent and interest in math and financial analysis, and at 17, he went to Ohio State University to study finance and accounting on a U.S. Navy ROTC scholarship.

Lowell’s bent toward financial analysis guided his career both in the Navy and after. He served in the Navy 20 years and had tours of duty on several ships as well as being stationed in Vietnam during the war and in the U.S., before ending his career in the Pentagon and in Washington, D.C. After retiring with the rank of commander, he enjoyed many happy work years at Edison Electric Institute in Washington, analyzing taxes and finance for members of this trade association for electric utilities. Lowell not only used his analytical abilities at work, but as a supervisor he made certain to support and treat well the people he managed. And he discovered a new talent he enjoyed, for planning the meetings of his financial analysts’ group; he had a great time bringing in his sense of fun to these work events—such as the one with a party that let him dress up as the Phantom of the Opera, cape, mask and all.

Despite a busy career and family life, he earned two master’s degrees in business and finance, from the University of Rhode Island and Catholic University in Washington, and qualified as a CPA. Lowell was one of the rare candidates to pass the entire set of CPA tests in one session.

Always throughout his life he gave back to the communities he was part of. Lowell for many years helped to manage the all-volunteer catering service run by the Brotherhood at Temple Beth El in Alexandria, VA. He was also an enthusiastic softball player, playing on teams in Washington and in the senior league in San Diego, where he and his wife Pam retired. He kept a large bonsai collection thriving and was an avid bridge player, teaming up with Pam, and had a great sense of humor and wordplay.

Above all he cared about his family. Lowell and Pam (Goldberg) married in 1964 in the historic Touro Synagogue in Newport, RI. Lowell delighted in being part of the large family he married into, and he was a wonderful and loving father, and then so thrilled to be a grandfather—and have new people to play baseball with (to their grandpa they were clearly future All-Stars at 3 years old). He enjoyed entertaining, and loved family gatherings, as well as sharing conversation with people he came across in his day-to-day routine. And when he cooked it usually took quite a few steps but was worth the wait—like his Sunday morning scrambled eggs that took several precisely cut items (scallions were key)—or the shrimp toast that was a specialty during a Chinese food period.

He leaves behind his wife Pamela; daughter Debbie and son-in-law Diego Rasskin, their children Gabriel and Alexander; son Jeffrey and daughter-in-law Mollie, their children Kaylee, Noah, Kaden and Adalyn; sister-in-law Arlene Zatz (brother-in-law the late Paul Zatz), and niece Jennifer Wydom and her husband Chris.
