Edward Leshowitz
1915 - 2008

Edward Leshowitz died peacefully on April, 21, 2008.

Born on April 12, 1915, Edward grew up in Passaic. He graduated from Montclair State University, became a high school teacher, and served in the Army in World War II.

After the war, he and his partners, John and Angelo Cali created vocational schools for World War II veterans, and then created Cali Associates, a construction business, building homes and office buildings in New Jersey and the greater New York area. It later became Cali Realty and then Mack-Cali Realty.

Edward was a successful entrepreneur and a generous benefactor.

He was a loving and giving father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. He had a great sense of humor and strong opinions about politics. He traveled the world and loved to tell stories about his travels, his youth, his days in the Army and in the classroom. He will be greatly missed.

He leaves behind a daughter, Susan Sandson; a niece, Terry Singer; two sisters, Ethel Singer and Sylvia Leshowitz; three grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Esther, and his son, Jed.

In his memory, contributions may be made to The Parkinson Foundation.
