Baruch College mourns the loss of Gerald Milton Lotenberg (’49), a World War II veteran who passed away peacefully on March 13, 2019. Mr. Lotenberg had been looking forward to attending what would have been his 70th reunion of graduating from Baruch College this June.
Lotenberg served in the U.S. Navy during WWII, of which he was deeply proud. Professionally, he joined Citrin Cooperman, one of the country’s largest, full-service assurance tax firms, in 1989 and served as a partner there for more than 20 years. In memory of Lotenberg, Citrin Cooperman renamed its annual day of service to the Gerald M. Lotenberg Annual Day of Service.
In addition to his outstanding career, Lotenberg contributed to his community. He served as a volunteer on the USS Intrepid so that he could share his passion for world history with the next generation and all those interested in learning.
He was a consummate provider and family man, devoted in love to his wife, Selma, children, Barry, Pam, and Gail, his grandchildren, Sienna, Lucas, Eliana, and Twyla, as well as his Daughters-in-law, Lynne and Lisa, and Son-in-law, Alejandro.
Baruch College mourns the loss of this outstanding alumnus but celebrates his service and wonderful contributions as a family man, professional, and veteran. Read his full obituary here.
