Lloyd Owens, 72, executive at UBS Paine Webber

July 19, 2002

Lloyd Owens, a former Baltimore resident and account vice president at UBS Paine Webber, died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma at his home in Winnetka, Ill. He was 72.

Mr. Owens was born and raised in Riderwood. He was the son of James Hamilton Owens Sr., editor in chief of The Sun and The Evening Sun, who died in 1967.

A 1947 graduate of the McDonogh School, he earned his bachelor's degree in physics and mathematics from the Johns Hopkins University in 1952.

FOR THE RECORD - Lloyd Owens Sr.: An obituary published Friday for Lloyd Owens Sr. omitted the name of a surviving son, Lloyd Owens Jr. of Cleveland. The Sun regrets the error.

During the 1950s and 1960s, he worked as an inventor and scientist for the Army Signal Corps in Cleveland. He later conducted research for the Atomic Energy Commission and worked with NASA at the Manned Space Center in Houston in ground-based instrumentation.

He later earned a master's degree in business from Case Western Reserve University and changed careers. In 1974, he went to work for Blunt Ellis and Simmons, a Cleveland investment firm.

An expert in biotechnology and computer securities, he later worked for Kidder Peabody in Chicago, now UBS Paine Webber, where he was an account vice president and financial adviser.

He was a former president of the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association of Illinois.

A memorial service will be held July 27 in Winnetka.

Mr. Owens is survived by his wife of 47 years, the former Luvean Moore; two daughters, Luvie Myers of Winnetka and Betsy Owens of Racine, Wisc.; a brother, Gwinn F. Owens of Ruxton, retired Evening Sun op-ed page editor; a sister, Olga Owens of Chestertown; and five grandchildren.
