August 28, 1939 — January 23, 2022


Donald "Don" Bain Lowrie, age 82, passed away peacefully with loved ones on January 23, 2022, in Midlothian, Texas. He was born on August 28, 1939, in Inverness, Scotland to Peter and Esther Lowrie. Don was the oldest of three children. His brothers are Peter Lowrie of Canada, and Alastair Lowrie of Sweden. In England, Don met and married Patricia "Pat" Coltman and were married over 60 years. Don and Pat have five children: Robert Lowrie, Peter Lowrie and wife Lisa, Michele Chancey and husband Tim, Alexander Lowrie and wife Lisa, and Sandy King. They have eight grandchildren: Brandi Carswell, Stormi Lowrie, Dylan Chancey, Jared Chancey, Leah Chancey, Joshua Lowrie, Zachary Lowrie and Brittney King. They also have one great grandchild, Ensley King Salazar.

Don worked and retired from the steel industry. He worked for steel companies in England, Canada, Minnesota, Texas, and Virginia. Most of his career was working for Chaparral Steel in Midlothian, Texas. He retired from Chaparral Steel in Petersburg, Virginia and then returned to Texas. He enjoyed traveling with his wife, playing the bagpipes, listening to all genres of music, watching English football, rugby, and golf, and loved reading and continuingly learning new things. He loved telling everyone his stories and history and had a mind like no other. He also was an avid runner who completed many races and marathons, often winning his age group. Through the years, he enjoyed all his children, grandchildren, and great granddaughter. He loved supporting them in their activities, being a tutor and teaching them magic tricks.

Don was an amazing husband, father, grandpa, gran-gran, and great grandpa. He was loved deeply and will be missed dearly by all. In lieu of flowers the family prefers donations be made to the American Cancer Society or St. Jude Children's Hospital.
