Lowry moves on


The low-key, outgoing Lowry — who was first on a pair of skis at about age 5 — goes to work in a T-shirt and jeans, a black “Nor Cal” cap with the brim flipped up and his brown curly hair poking out the back.

He is having a blast using some of business skills he learned at Pepperdine, and others he taught himself by dabbling in the real estate business and turning over houses while rehabilitating all his injuries in Arizona. On a recent Sunday, the owners closed the shop at one of the busiest areas of Santa Rosa and took their entire staff on an outing to Lake Tahoe for one final day on the slopes.

Still, it hurts to hold his daughters, 2-year-old Averlee Rose and nearly 3-month-old Anniston. While Lowry can still golf, other activities that require gripping present a challenge. He is committed to a healthy diet and says, “I stay away from things I can’t do.”

There are no hard feelings now, and Lowry isn’t bitter about the altered path of his career or life. He and his wife, Andrea, would love to expand their family eventually — “keep the family name going,” Lowry said of adding a boy to his brood.

“Early on it was an emotional breakup, I feel like, but at the same time, it’s water under the bridge in my world,” Lowry said. “There were a lot of things I had to have done moving forward from there. I’m just at a point in my life, from a physical standpoint I’m beat up, I’m broken up. But I still have the rest of my body and life about me and I gave everything I could give there, my blood, sweat and tears, literally everything. I take from it a good experience.”
