Robin (Bob) Kim Lowrey was reunited with his son on August 4, 2016, at the age of 62.
Bob was born to Jerry and Patti (Sutton) Lowrey in Pomona, California, on April 13, 1954. Bob grew up in Claremont, California, with his three older sisters.
He attended a military school as a young boy and left school at a very early age to join the Army when his country needed him.
Bob served for six years. During that time, he was stationed in Germany, where he met Vicki Downard. They were married and had their first son Richard. Upon the completion of his military service and returning to the states, they settled in Moab, where their second son Robert was born. Bob completed police academy and served with the Moab City Police Department and later with the Grand County Sheriff’s Department.
It was also at this time in Bob’s life that he had the opportunity to work closely with his good friend Jody Bierschied doing reclamation work.
Bob and Vicki divorced and he moved to southern California, where he reconnected with childhood friend Lynn Harris. Bob and Lynn were married and had three children: Gilbert, Sara and Lee.
There was never a dull moment with a houseful of kids and crafts. These were some of his best memories.
He worked in many different fields in the construction industry while in California.
When Bob and Lynn divorced, he relocated back to Moab, where he enjoyed living with his son Richard and nephew Chad working in various cook and construction jobs.
Bob and Richard then spent some time living in Washington state with their close friends, the Adamsons. Bob was once again drawn back to Moab, where he met and married Lori Halstead.
Their marriage was short-lived and Bob reconnected with his first wife Vicki in Castle Dale. Bob and Vicki shared the next 18 years together, during which time they suffered the loss of their first son Richard. It was during this darkest of times that a ray of light was shone with the birth of their daughter Teah.
Bob was preceded in death by his son, Richard Donovan Lowrey; his father, Jerry P. Lowrey; his mother, Patricia A. Meloche, close friend, Jody Bierschied, and third wife, Lori Halstead Lowrey.
Bob is survived by sons Robert (Heidi) Lowrey of Benson, Utah, and Gilbert and Lee Lowrey of Laramie, Wyoming; daughters Sara (Nick) Meng of Cody, Wyoming, and Teah Lowrey of Castle Dale; sisters Debbie (Jim) Olsen of Logan, Terrie (Fred) Bennett of Monterey, California, and Cindie (Dan) Eichner of Jacksonville, Florida; granddaughters Monique Lowrey of Logan, Kayla Rice Lowrey of Klickitat, Washington, and Haven Lee of Wenatchee, Washington; grandsons Beau, Steel and Skylr Lowrey of Benson; nephews Chad (Lori) Lowrey of Logan, and Bryan Bennett of Carmel Valley, California; first wife Vicki Downard Lowrey of Castle Dale, and second wife Lynn Harris Lowrey of Laramie; and many, many wonderful friends.
