Bruce Lowell was born March 21, 1952 in Flint, Michigan. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, great uncle, cousin and friend. Bruce Lowell was an Air Force man, Microsoft man, and most recently a real estate agent, but most of all he was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.
Bruce found the most joy in loving and caring for his family while surprising them with pranks and regaling them with “Daddy” jokes. Bruce met Diana Palmer at the age of 15 while camping with their respective families. He eventually convinced Diana to give him a chance and they started dating and later married and had two strong-willed daughters.
Bruce and his family have had many adventures together at home and abroad, including waterfall hikes, puffin attacks, cruises around Hawaii, Florida Keys fishing and snorkeling, and outings. by boat on the bay or lakes of Florida and Washington.
Bruce was a sports fanatic but switched teams whenever he moved geographically – although he remained a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan for many decades. In recent years, he could be heard for blocks yelling at NFL referees or hitting his chair during hockey games. He built race cars with his brother and cousins as a child and loved to follow NASCAR. He was a huge fan of holiday traditions and loved to create a Christmas village every year with his grandchildren and roam the neighborhood in search of the most Griswoldian light show with his family. Bruce loved the mountains and tolerated the beach for the sake of his family. He loved his family deeply and we miss him dearly.
Bruce is predeceased by his parents, Harvey and Geraldine Lowell, and his brother Gary Lowell. He is survived by his wife, Diana Lowell, two daughters, Suzette Attinelli of Everett, Washington (Jayson Attinelli) and Rachel Oliver of Lakewood, Colorado (Patrick Oliver) as well as his grandchildren Kylie Attinelli of Everett, Washington and Roland Attinelli of Everett, Washington, his brother Steve Lowell (Jill Lowell) of Chesapeake, Virginia as well as several nieces and nephews.
