Donald Everett Gorewitz passed away January 17, 2020 after a brave battle with Parkinson's Disease. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 53 years, Judy Gorewitz. Don is survived by children, Marc Gorewitz, Lisa Brill, and Josh Gorewitz; grandchildren, Sydney Gorewitz, Whitney Gorewitz, Sarah Brill, Daniel Brill, Jordan Gorewitz, and Ariel Gorewitz; son-in-law, Sam Brill; and daughters-in-law, Lori Gorewitz and Erica Hakimi. Don also remained close throughout his life with two of his cousins, Darlene Fogel and Sandra Peters.

Don was born on January 29, 1940 in Newark, New Jersey, the only son of William and Elaine Gorewitz. He attended the Ohio State University where he was a member of Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity. Don received his bachelor's degree in business administration from Ohio State. After college, Don moved to Los Angeles where he would meet and soon marry the love of his life, Judy. Don and Judy would move to Fresno, California where son, Marc and daughter, Lisa were born. After returning to Los Angeles, Don eventually moved his family to Denver where son, Josh was born. Soon after, the family settled in Houston where Don would spend the rest of his years.

Don enjoyed a long career in sales, spending much time on the road but always making the most of his time with his wife, kids, and later grandkids, all of whom he loved so much. Don's outgoing personality was a natural fit for his career, and he developed lifelong friendships with many of his customers.

Don had a great love of sports, especially his Ohio State Buckeyes. He shared this passion with his kids, volunteering his time to coach Little League and taking his family to local sporting events. Don received just as much enjoyment watching his daughter's and later granddaughters' recitals. He also loved gardening and could often be found meticulously tending to his landscaping. Don also served his country proudly as a member of the National Guard.

The family wants to thank Colonial Oaks Sugarland, Elysian Hospice, and HF Production Nursing Services for their care of Don.
