Lawrence Michael Horowitz

Lawrence Michael Horowitz, 73, passed away on January 24, 2017 in Shoreline, WA. He was born July 23, 1943 in New York, New York and has been a resident of this area for over 30 years.

He is survived by his wife Sharon Joy Jameson; his son Adam Mark Horowitz; his grandson Elijah (Michael) Horowitz; his brother David Horowitz; his sisters Nina Risdall and Joanne Mayeda; his half-brother Mark Horowitz; his cousin Doris Berton and many other loving friends and relatives.

Lawrence M. "Lonny" Horowitz was known, loved and respected by many. His childhood years were spent in New York. He then grew to manhood in Florida, near Miami. His friendships among his peers as president of USY and his appointment to Blue Star school were among his fondest memories. Lonny excelled in tumbling and was rated as Olympic quality. His prowess in diving was also a source of pride for his family.

After a year in engineering at the University of Florida (Go Gators!) Lonny entered the elite United States Submarine service. He served honorably and was awarded multiple medals of service and excellence in performance. He served his country in the capacity of E-5 for eight years including six nuclear submarine patrols.

Lonny's time in Hawaii as owner of Oahu Realty, the then largest real estate company on the island, gave him much pleasure and provided him with the challenge of his own radio show on real estate.

After moving to the mainland, Lonny was selected by such luminaries as Jack Benaroya to spearhead efforts regarding Parkway Plaza in Southcenter, Tukwila and Rubin Salant in successful efforts to lease up Condominium Builders. Lonny also was part of the team responsible for the Washington State Horizontal Property Regime.

Lonny's business career included in excess of forty-five years of real estate experience of all types. Leasehold and every aspect of commercial real estate were his specialties. Boutique real estate specialties such as medical and dental real estate condominiums were also in his purview. He was a powerful force in real estate and in life and will be missed.
