Kenneth Edgar Lowman
September 15, 1940 - August 2023

Kenneth Edgar "Eddie" Lowman, BHS '58, suffered a stroke at his home in July, and passed away in August at a rehab facility. Ed was 82. After BHS Ed attended and graduated from UCLA, and remained a faithful lifelong UCLA football fan attending most home and away games.

Ed lived most of his life on Sunset Canyon Dr in Burbank in a home built by Ed's grandparents, Edgar Lowman and his wife. His father, Kenneth Lowman, lived about three houses away on Sunset Canyon Dr.

Ed and his first wife had three children, Kellie (BHS '79), Kevin (BHS '81), and Kenny (BHS '82). Ed's wife passed away in 1966 at age 26 when the children were very young. He and his second wife had one daughter, Kasey, a Village Christian High School graduate.

Ed's memorial service was held on September 15th on what would have been his 83rd birthday. The service was at Calvary Bible Church in Burbank, where Ed attended for much of his teen years and early married life, when the church was named MacArthur Memorial Bible Church.

Ed was a BHS Centennial Committee member in 2007 and 2008 which lead up to the school's four day Centennial celebration in September 2008. Ed attended his first BHS Senior Bulldogs luncheon in March 2023 at the Burbank Elks Lodge.

Ed Lowman is survived by his wife, Debbie, his son Ken Lowman of Burbank, daughter Kasey Lowman Madeoy of Washington state, four grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and his former wife Barbara Beliveau Lowman. Ed is predeceased by his first wife Adrienne LaSor Lowman in 1966, his daughter Kellie Lowman in 2009, and his son Kevin Lowman in 1994.
