in Russian you can say, translating the first example of yours:
*Mit ihm haben wir ein-en Freund verloren.
*with he:DAT have:PRES:1PL we INDEF-MASC:ACC friend lose:PPP
*В нем* мы потеряли друга
in he:DAT we lose:PAST:1PL friend:MASC:ACC
As you see, it is the preposition "in", not "with", that we use in Russian.
But then I must say exactly the same thing that Denis has just said: this
construction seems natural only for the first two examples. In the other
cases, other means of expressing this kind of relation should be resorted
