Dick Lowrey was born on September 9, 1934 to EJ “Pinky” and Ruth Lowrey in Lubbock, Texas. He grew up in a family of educators and athletes. A graduate of Lubbock High School, he played on the two-time state championship football team. He went on to play football for the University of Texas and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in cotton marketing. In the summer of 1956, Dick met the love of his life, Nita Wood, at Camp Davis near Rociada, NM. The two had a wedding at home on August 3, 1957. Together they enjoyed raising five children. After working as a rancher near Slaton, TX, Dick taught math and coached for 34 years in Lubbock ISD. Faith in his Lord Jesus Christ, commitment to family, and love for friends held utmost importance to Dick. He enjoyed family vacations with his dearly loved grandchildren, playing golf, hunting, and gardening–especially growing tomatoes. A competitor to the end, he demonstrated character and fortitude in all that he did.
Survivors include his wife, Nita Lowrey; children, Sara Matthews and husband, Jimmy; Brent Lowrey and wife, Petie; Pam Gaschen and husband, Paul; Becky Denton and husband, Ashley; 17 grandchildren and their spouses; 8 great-grandchildren; brother, Jim Lowrey; and two brothers-in-law, Clark (Jan) Wood and Joe (Sandy) Wood.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Lyn Honig; and son, Michael Wilson Lowrey.
