Peacefully on Tuesday, September 27th Trevor Lowe took his last breath on earth and walked into the waiting arms of Jesus in heaven. He was embraced by his father Melvin whom he dearly missed for the last 35 years.
He was loved and will be missed by his daughters Kailee and Rorie and his wife Myra. Many friends and family members will miss his fun-loving spirit, infectious laugh and captivating story telling.
Trevor was born on April 16, 1969 in Thompson, Manitoba. He remained a resident of Thompson until his passing. He chose to raise his family in Thompson and was an active member of the community.
Trevor was hired on at Inco in the smelter in May 1988. His greatest personal accomplishment at work was following in his Dad’s footsteps by becoming a shift boss. He continued to excel in staff positions throughout his career at Vale.
Trevor was always interested in the activities his daughters participated in. Both girls are members of the TNT swim club. Trevor enjoyed taking Kailee to swim meets and was proud to be able to watch Rorie compete in her first swim meet last winter. He was able to coach Kailee’s basketball team and encouraged Rorie as she took golf lessons.
Trevor loved his sports. As a young boy he played hockey, golf and baseball and continued to participate in all of these sports in his adult life. Eventually his body objected to playing baseball or hockey and golf became his focus. He continued to cheer for the Canucks and the Blue Jays and was fortunate enough to attend games played by both teams. His annual golf trips to Florida were a highlight for him.
Honorary pallbearers are Jim Richards, Dennis Fenske, Lorne Hambleton, Scott MacMillan, Daryl Venne, Paul Svarc, Dale Katchmar, Sheldon Malley and Steve Hennessey.
A memorial service was held on Monday, October 3rd at 4:00 pm at the Lutheran-United Church in Thompson. A time of fellowship was held at St. Joseph’s Hall following the service.
