It is with hearts full of sadness we announce the passing of Eric Dion Lowe on March 2, 2019. A free spirit, constrained by the limits set by this world, he is now free to be joyful and dance, sing and play bass to his heart’s content for his Saviour Jesus. A proud Alberta boy, Dion was born in Peace River where he became a musician and spent his earlier years travelling the country with his bands Strutt and Hangdogs. He formed a trail of friends across Canada and into the States because music, like Dion, knows no boundaries. As a young adult, he settled into Edmonton and area eventually choosing Leduc as a home. He spent many years working as a dispatcher for several long-haul trucking companies and made an impact on many of the lives he touched during that time. Dion lived life to the fullest and had the gift of always being “in the moment”. He was giving of his time, his words, his gifts, and his friends knew that whatever he had was freely theirs as well. If he had taken a life motto, it would have been “How much is enough?…Just a little bit more.” He loved his family above all else and the world is a dimmer place with the loss of Dion’s light.
He is survived by his wife of 21 years, Lorna Lowe; his sons Lindsay (wife Kristian) and Eric, brother Darren, mother Beverly, and his beloved cats. Also continuing on after his loss are Al and Sarah, Brock, Darryl and Michelle, who are friends that became family.
Dion’s Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. with public viewing from 1:00 – 2:30 at the Leduc Alliance Church, 5503 Black Gold Drive, Leduc, AB. His wish was to be buried at Little Prairie Cemetery, Nampa, AB alongside his grandparents. This will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. with a short graveside service.
