I never knew Lowell very well (exchanged "hi" in the halls between classes), but I admired his athletic ability on the basketball court. Several years ago when my own son was playing basketball against TLs varsity in the TL gym, I thought of Lowell. Great guy on and off the court, what a loss.

Lowell was TL's greatest track man. He still holds the #1 all-time Marin County best for the 120 yard (now 110 meter) high hurdles. No one has been able to beat his time for 41 years!

I went up to Oregon State University with Lowell upon graduation in 1968. He was on a full track scholarship and went on to have an excellent college career, including medaling at the Pac-8 Championships. We roomed together for a short time at OSU, until he was required to move into the athletic dorm and I moved into the party dorm. I only lasted one year at OSU and lost track of Lowell after I left OSU and went into the Army.

Lowell was genuinely one of the nicest people that I have even known. He had the unique ability to be completely intense on the track, but as nice as can be off the track. I miss him a lot and I know many others do, too!

Lowell was my Government class buddy as he sat next to me and we had more fun not paying attention and we h elped each other on tests. He always let me rest my casted leg on his chair and he would always say I had the biggest most beautiful brown eyes he ever saw. Of course I told him he was one of my elegant runners I would ever see in my life. And how handsome he looked in his letterman sweater. How true that still is. I considered him a man of true class and loved watching him run and would often tell my significant others years later, about how elegant he ran and what a champion he was. Even though he was gone far too soon, I'm glad to see his record still stands as a tribute to the incredible talent he was, Lowell will forever be that extraordinary young man to all of us.
