Remember Lowell as someone quiet and polite.  Sorry to see he passed.

Sorry to read about Lowell's passing.  Many of us knew him as a student a Bradford, but I also had the pleasure of knowing him when I was a Marketing instructor at the old K.T.I. (Gateway), and Lowell was a student.  I'm sure he had many fond memories of his education there and the friends he made.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Linda and the rest of his family.

I am so sorry about losing Lowell.  He was a good trumpet player in our youth.  I marveled at the way he played high notes with such ease.  To Lowell's family and friends including Dennis, I'm thinking of you.

One of the good guys.  Great memories of both MDBHS & KTI.  So long "Man-O-War".

Lowell was one of the most under-rated players in the band.  But not by Don Neau, the first trumpet player.  I used to carpool with Don  (Class of '60), the first-chair trumpet player, and he often told me how much he appreciated Lowell in the section.   The trumpet is a demanding, punishing instrument, and a lead player needs all the support he can get.  Lowell provided that.  At all times.

I'm sorry I didn't get to know him better.  But that's life, I guess--so many great people, so little time.  But by all accounts he had a great life, and that offers much solace.  R.I.P., Lowell.

A funny, loveable brother-in-law.  As the saying goes, "he would give you the shirt off his back and the last dime in his pocket". We've had some great times together.  You will be missed.

So sorry to hear about Lowell's passing.  We played trumpet together from Jr. High through High School and had a friendly competition at first trumpet.  I always enjoyed his company.  I regret not staying more in touch with my classmates -- times goes by so fast.  RIP Lowell.
