The family and some of Lowell’s closest friends know that his life has been like a dark comedy, one misfortune after another. The one that most changed his life and started him down a path that would lead to him to becoming a great curler happened when he was 9 years old. Lowell fractured his leg and spent 8 weeks with a full leg cast from hip to ankle. While healing he became very good at card and board games developing the ability to think 2 or 3 moves ahead, a quality that carried over into the game of curling. The game of marbles as a child finely tuned his touch and translated into a wonderful ability to read curling ice. His competitive spirit developed naturally as the eldest of seven children in his family.
Although fiercely competitive, Lowell has a great respect for the game always shaking hands at the end of the game and joining opponents at a table for refreshments and discussions. His famous sense of humour often appears during stories postgame. Lowell continues to skip a team with his brothers enjoying a sport he has loved all his life.
