ROGOW: Nathan Mark Rogow died Jan. 15, 2022, in Baltimore, Maryland, at the age of 82. He is survived by his wife, Ferne V. Rogow; sons Bradley Rogow and Maury Rogow (Nai Tang); brother Richard Rogow (Ellen Ansell); granddaughter Summer Rogow; nephew Max Rogow; aunt Millie Rogow; and cousins Walter Rice (Bonnie), Gerda Whitman (Nelson), Sally Rogow and Barbara Mendlowitz (Hal). Nathan was predeceased by his parents, Brunhilda Rice Rogow and Gerson Rogow, and his uncle, Arthur Rogow.
Nathan was born on Dec. 16, 1939, in Pittsburgh. Family was the fabric of his life. He cherished memories of family past and delighted in the next generations. He was the go-to for questions about family history. In his later years, Nathan loved reminiscing with his cousin Walter and looked forward to Sunday calls with granddaughter Summer who especially loved his Donald Duck imitation.
Nathan was a lover of animals. He cherished his dogs Heidi and Tootsie. To the end, Nathan did what he could to respect and preserve nature and bring our attention to the importance of our environment.
Lover of history and antiques, Nathan’s homes were full of art, antiques and beautiful furniture. His real calling was design, though for most of his life, he worked in commercial real estate. He was an abiding member of Pittsburgh History and Landmarks.
Nathan was a wizard of words. Pre- and post-Google, family and friends relied on him for definitions, and were delighted with his clever use of language. Sensitive and philosophical, Nathan used his unique and unexpected sense of humor to make family and friends laugh deeply. We will miss those moments and his enduring love.
