Lieuwen, John N.



John was born August 19, 1951 in Berkeley California, passed away on July 2, 2016. He was the first son of Edwin and Marian Lieuwen, and is survived by his four siblings, Peter, Andrew, James, and Catherine Lieuwen.



John grew up in Albuquerque and graduated from Highland High School in 1969. During his high school years he developed life-long friendships with a handful of his peers. John began his college career at UNM and later transferred to UC Berkeley where he received his BA in economics in 1973. He went on to get his JD at Hastings Law School 1976 and his LLM in taxation from NYU in 1977. He later moved back to Albuquerque and began his legal career with a small tax and estate planning firm. He quickly became managing partner and helped build the firm to be one of the best in New Mexico.



John was passionate about his work and his recreational pursuits, including marathon running, flying, poker, skiing, traveling, and most of all, fishing. He was also an aficionado of fine foods, wines, and cigars.



He will be missed by his family and his many close friends.
