Lewtan Industries Chairman Dies at 88
Marvin Lewtan, founder and chairman of supplier Lewtan Industries (asi/67230), died in October at 88, after nearly 70 years in the promotional products industry. Family members say Lewtan loved his company and the advertising specialty industry so much that he was literally at the office until the day he died. Lewtan founded the company in 1947 with his predeceased brother, Robert, offering the popular Mighty Grip Jar Opener. Other products include lanyards, wallets, towels and bags, many of which are manufactured in the U.S.
Lewtan is survived by three children, nine grandchildren and a sister. He was predeceased by Jane Sodokoff Lewtan, his wife of 37 years.
