      Arthur Rogow, former president of a uniform manufacturing business, sold the Bloomfield company in 1991 but he hardly settled into a sedentary retirement.

      He and Millie, his wife of 62 years, traveled extensively throughout the world, attended parties and played in bridge clubs. He was an avid golfer and tennis player until his mid-80s. And he attended regular Monday night poker games with his buddies until two weeks ago.

      That's when he was hospitalized for a number of serious conditions. He knew his time was limited and his one wish was to get out of the hospital and return to his Shadyside home. He did just that on Tuesday. The next day, Mr. Rogow, died in his home surrounded by his wife and three generations of his family. He was 89.

      "He was happy, contented, at peace," one of his daughters, Barbi Mendlowitz, of Oakland, said of her father's passing. And, she said, that was the way he lived his life.

      "He lived life to the fullest," she said. "He had a great sense of humor, he loved people, he was interested in people. He was a very, very social outgoing person.

      "He was a dear, sweet father, very conscientious about education. His family and his religion were everything to him."

      Those qualities served him well as president of Joseph Rogow & Sons, which was started by his grandfather, Joseph, in 1923, and where his father, Isaac, also worked. The manufacturing company focused on serving the health care industry and flourished until it was sold.

      Mr. Rogow graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1940 and served in World War II as a captain in the Army.

      He was active in the United Jewish Federation and Rodef Shalom Temple, Shadyside.

      In addition to his wife and daughter, he is survived by another daughter, Sally Rogow of San Luis Obispo, Calif.; three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

      Services were held Friday at Rodef Shalom Temple. Interment was in Beth Shalom Cemetery.

      Contributions may be made to Rodef Shalom Sisterhood or Jewish Residential Services, both at 4905 Fifth Ave., Pittsburgh 15213.
