Arthur W. Lotz
Grantham, N.H. — Arthur Lotz, 84, died on Friday, May 30, 2014, at his home in Eastman, Grantham.
He was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., the son of Charles and Clara Lohmann Lotz in Feb. 24, 1927. The family moved to several locations in New York and New Jersey, returning to Brooklyn so that he could attend Brooklyn Technical High School and the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, from which he graduated in June 1947.
He immediately became employed as a junior engineer by the engineering construction firm of Elasco Services in NYC and remained with them for the next 40 years, retiring in 1986 as Senior V.P. of Engineering and Construction. His job included many years of travel throughout the world, the highlight being the five years he and his family spent in Tokyo, Japan. He was assigned to oversee all operations in the Far East. He also spent several years as head of the Atlanta office, returning to New York City and working in the World Trade Center until his retirement.
He is survived by his wife, Ethel, of 61 years; his son, Kenneth, of Grantham; his daughter, Diane and her husband, Michael Millette of Forest Hill, Md.; two grandsons, Jesse Millette and his wife, Logan of Delta, Pa., and Cody Millette of Forest Hill, Md. Also several nieces as nephews.
He was predeceased by his parents, his older brother Walter and his sister Anita Stuhler and her husband, Bill.
The family moved to Eastman after his retirement and became members of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Hanover. He was the founder of the Congeniality Golf Association. He loved being active in his church and in various committees in Eastman, being president of his “special place” for many years. He was also president of the Country Squires in New London. Living in New Hampshire was a dream come true for a kid from Brooklyn.
He loved his Lord and his family above all else and to know him was to truly love him. He loved to joke and tell stories and could take it as well as he could “dish it out.” His kind heart and quick smile will truly be missed.
Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial service on Saturday, June 28 at 3 p.m. at Our Savior Lutheran Church, Summer St, Hanover, N.H.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Our Savior Lutheran Church.
