Our city has suffered two great loses this week. Regis Groff and Henry Lowenstein have passed. Both epitomized the spirit of the Athenian Oath: to “…transmit this city not only, not less, but greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”
Regis and I served in the Colorado Senate together. But he always said that his greatest calling was as a teacher, not an elected official. He and I had that in common. We both served in the legislature and we both taught. But he had wonderful accomplishments in the Senate. He and I (along with Rep. Wilma Webb) worked hard to pass legislation creating the Martin Luther King Holiday in Colorado. As a teacher, his life was a lesson. Regis was a wonderful man and I will miss him.
