LAUREN H. COLLOFF, M.D.
Lauren H. Colloff, MD passed away October 25th.But although he has passed away, he is still with us in so many ways. Lauren was an Orthopedic Surgeon who loved his work and loved his patients, and his memory lives on with them. He was a skilled potter, and his work remains for family and friends to remind us of him. He was a skilled bread maker, and the memories of aromas and tastes will stay with us . He was intensely curious, widely read and knowledgable in a wide range of fields. And, he particularly loved astronomy and his association with the Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena.
Most important, he was a compassionate, loving, fun loving and kind husband to Cathy Colloff, caring brother to Ed Colloff, and wonderful uncle to Shamir Colloff and Josh Braun.
He will be remembered with tears and joy — and missed very much by all of us.
Donations may be made in his memory to The Carnegie Observatories (https://obs.carnegiescience.edu), The Los Angeles Philharmonic (https://www.laphil.com), or The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank (https://www.lafoodbank.org).
