George Fritz Horowitz May 19, 1924 - December 27, 2020 Born in Vienna, Austria, George left as a teenager during the Nazi era, taking refuge during the war in Shanghai, China with his parents Bernhard and Gertrude. He met Rose (nee Jacob; b. 1924) right before leaving Shanghai for California in the late 40s. They met again several years later in San Francisco, and were married in 1953. He graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1951, and from USC in 1960 with a masters degree, also in Civil Engineering. He had a long career with the Tidewater oil company and Southern California Edison Company in the 50s and 60s, followed by many years with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. He was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineering in 1965. He resided in Eagle Rock, California from 1954 until his death from covid-19. He is survived by his daughter Susan Elizabeth Horowitz (b. 1954), by his son Franklin George Horowitz (b. 1957), and by his daughter-in-law Pamela Louise Smith (b. 1951). He was pre-deceased by Rose in 2011 after 58 years of marriage, and by his only grandchild, Ian Bernard Horowitz, in 2016. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in his memory be made to the Education Fund of the ASCE Foundation: .
