U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) issued the following statement after the loss of his father, Leonard Perlmutter:
"My father, Leonard Michael Perlmutter, died July 8, 2018 in Denver, Colorado. “Len” or “Laz” as he was known to many was a great man and a great Coloradan."
"The breadth and the impact of his accomplishments and endeavors is immeasurable. There was no job and no person too big or too small for him. He was an innovator, business man, educator, civic leader, dog lover, Democrat from the top of his head to the tips of toes, and a wonderful father, husband, grandfather and great-grandfather. He worked hard, he played hard and he always kept faith with himself."
"My family and I deeply appreciate your thoughts and prayers. In the coming days, we will provide additional information about funeral services."
