KATZ--Lewis, We honor the life and legacy of our friend Lewis Katz--a leader, philanthropist and dear friend for whom success meant working to help others gain access to education and opportunity. His humble beginnings never far from his mind, Lewis never saw financial success as an end in itself, but a means to generate the most opportunity for the greatest number. Lewis had a great business mind, but more importantly, he had a big heart which touched everyone. The care and love for his family, his daughter Melissa, his son Drew, his grandchildren and his many friends was always first for Lewis. He leaves behind a world improved by his efforts and his life of good deeds. We will all miss you Lewis. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time. Bruce Ratner and the Forest City Ratner Companies Family
