I just a moment ago learned of the passing of Arnold Loewy, my favorite law professor at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Law. I am 75 years old and trying to leave a detailed family history for my four children by writing weekly chapters for StoryWorth. This week's question pertained to my favorite college professors, which included Professor Loewy and inspired me to Google him where I discovered he had recently died. I had professor Loewy for criminal law and procedure my first year (1971-1972), and constitutional law my second year. I was one of those students who had a break from college having served in the Navy for three and a half years, to include my last assignment as an officer-in-charge of a Swift Boat in Vietnam. Professor Loewy had a unique teaching style that included a lot of dry humor. He was demanding but not in a demanding way. While I never rose above a Gentleman C in any of his classes, I have always felt confident that I learned so much more than many of my classmates who studied under other professors. My career was in the FBI, which I had planned long before law school. The basics I learned in Professor Loewy's courses served me well over 28 years both as a Special Agent and adjunct position as a certified legal adviser. While Professor Loewy would not likely have remembered me, I will always remember him. I owe him a debt of gratitude for all that I learned in his classes and for how enjoyable his classes were. He has left a great legacy with the countless number of students he taught. May he rest in peace knowing that he had a great impact on more lives than he would probably have ever guessed. I am one of them.

I just heard this sad news yesterday. I was at the SEALS conference, a law school conference where Arnold was a fixture for years. For several years I knew him as a kind, generous, and quirky professor and author. It was only after he invited me to his Texas Tech Symposium that I realized what a profound effect he had on his field and just how beloved he was. People--giants in the academy--would flock from around the country to attend "Arnie's conference." But my favorite part was seeing him dressed up as a cowboy and hearing him sing at his closing dinner. You are missed, Arnold!

Arnold was a wonderful colleague, but more importantly he was a kind and gentle friend to both of us, and we will be forever grateful at having both him and Judy in our lives. We will always carry fond memories of him in our hearts, and we know that his memory will forever be a blessing to those who knew and loved him. Sending our deepest condolences to Judy and the family.

I had the privilege to be one of Arnold’s friends over the past 4 or 5 years since he gruffly invited me to participate in his symposium. Before that, I knew him only by his larger-than-life reputation. To be invited to the symposium was a great honor. That he invited me again for two more of those wonderful events was amazingly rewarding. Sad that we could not do the event in person this past spring. His open mind, the excitement about engaging folks who did not agree with him, was evident always. His loss is felt by so many of us.

Judy, as you know, Arnie was a great friend to me when I came to Tech after practicing for thirty years. He'd pop in my office for a few seconds almost every day to answer questions and see if I needed anything. He was so very kind to me, and always a mensch. I will always treasure the memory of his kindness. May his memory be a blessing.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this hard time. What interactions I had with him here at the law library were always so pleasant. Again, so very sorry for your loss.

Professor Loewy taught my supreme court seminar class this past semester and I had the privilege of getting to be his student (even virtually). He made class fun and his class was my favorite all semester long. My heart hurts for his family and friends. I am praying for each of you during this hard time. I’m so sorry for your loss.

What an amazing gift to have known and been loved by Arnie. I am so grateful for his generosity, warmth, and friendship. A mensch and a mentor, he has taught us all to be better people simply by being himself. Thank-you, Judy, for sharing him with us, particularly in these last, most precious of years.

Arnold and I were good friends for more than three decades. I only want to focus here on what a gentleman he was. Kind, generous, and compassionate. He handled these past years with tremendous courage. His colleagues and former students will miss him, I am sure, and all of us who participated in his great symposia will, too. To Judy, I know this is an extremely difficult time. Like Arnold, you are a wonderful person. Know that we will all have you in our thoughts. (I still remember the Passover matzoh you sent me home with one year.) May his memory be a blessing.

I am so glad I got to know Arnold in the last few years. We bonded over our Tar Heel basketball obsession. He was an amazingly warm host of a a wonderful annual conference. Smart, funny, and kind. We will miss him. I offer my heartfelt condolences to Judy and the rest of his family.

Arnold was a great colleague and better friend. We will always treasure memories not only of his legal acumen, but also his deep love for his family, the Red Raiders, the Tar Heels, and the Red Sox. Judy, thank you for sharing him with the Texas Tech family for the last many years. We will miss him.
