Harry Lebow passed away on June 30, 2018 at the age of 76. Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1941 to Victor David and Helen Kaufman Lebow, Harry was known for his quick wit and sense of humor, his boundless energy, his love of life and his life-long devotion to friends and family. He was an avid traveler, sports enthusiast, and loved horseback riding, tennis, scuba diving, and skiing. Growing up in Baltimore, Harry graduated high school from Baltimore City College in 1958 and then went on to obtain a Bachelors of Business Administration from Tulane University in 1962. At Tulane he met his future wife, Beth Flowers. The two were married in 1963 in Beth’s hometown of Lexington Mississippi. Shortly after their marriage, the couple moved to New York City where Harry began his professional career in the family’s men’s clothing business. In 1969, Beth and Harry moved to Baltimore for what was supposed to be a one year business assignment but ultimately decided to settle in Baltimore and raise a family. In 1970, Harry was named president of Lebow Clothes and served in that role until 1982. Later he transitioned into a career in real estate with The Shelter Group and continued to be active in various real estate ventures. He also served as a Trustee of Maryland Permanent Bank and Trust Company, a member of the Young President’s Organization (YPO) and the President of the Chesapeake Chapter of the World’s President’s Organization (WPO). Always civically minded, Harry was deeply involved in a number of non-profit organizations throughout his life. Most recently, he was a passionate supporter of the SEED School of Maryland, where he served as an Executive Committee member of the Board of Trustees since its inception in 2008. He was also a Member of the Associated Jewish Charities Investment Committee and served on the boards of the Jewish Community Center and Jewish Vocational Services. He is survived by his loving wife Beth Flowers Lebow, children Lisa Lebow (Mark) Kaufman and Bradley Harris (Jodi) Lebow, grandchildren Caroline Kaufman, Lucy Kaufman, Kaitlin Lebow, and Brooks Lebow, and brother Victor David Lebow, Jr. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, July 7th at 10:30am at The Baltimore Country Club (Roland Park location), 4712 Club Road, Baltimore, MD 21210. Please omit flowers. Contributions in his memory may be sent to The SEED School Of Maryland, Attn: Katie Byram, 200 Font Hill Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21223.
