Stephen E. Lohm
October 6, 1943-September 26, 2016
With heavy hearts and our deepest regrets we announce the recent passing of Stephen E Lohm. As some of you may know, Stephen became seriously ill in the past year. True to Stephen's nature, he never complained! After a valiant fight, he was taken from his family, friends, colleagues and this earth way too soon. Stephen passed peacefully on Monday, September 26th , in the arms of his wife Sharon and daughter Felicity.
Stephen began his career with ILA nearly 20 years ago alongside our founder Donald Young. Over the past two decades, Stephen grew to be one of the most respected Lighting Designers in the industry, and helped shape and grow ILA to where we are today. We are forever grateful. Aside from his outstanding career, he was a good man, and a loyal friend and a mentor to many. He provided a lot of laughs along the way…he will be so very sadly missed by his family here at ILA.
A memorial visitation will be held on Saturday October 1st from 4-6pm with a memorial service to follow thereafter at 6 pm at CC Van Emburgh Funeral Home at 306 E Ridgewood Avenue Ridgewood NJ.
Prior to his death, Stephen expressed his desire to have contributions In lieu of flowers. Donations may be made in Stephen's name to the “For Scout Foundation”, which was established to honor and benefit the things and causes that were important to his granddaughter Scout and to himself. Some such causes as: arts education in school, animal rescue organizations, and aquatic programs for those in need.
