Paul Lowry

July 8, 1951 - February 1, 2021







Paul S. Lowry ~~~ Passed peacefully away February 1st. A partner at KPMG, he devoted himself to his work, overcoming serious health problems to pursue excellence in his field. Mr. Lowry grew up in Norman, OK, the son of Anne D. Lowry and William H. Lowry. After graduating from Norman High School ('69) as a National Merit Scholar, he graduated from Williams College with a Political Science degree and from Yale Law School ('76). Prior to joining KPMG, he was employed at Bank of Boston while studying to become a CPA. Paul was a relentless collector of things that interested him. As a boy he collected coins and stamps and when vacationing with his family in Colorado, boxed, labeled and categorized a collection of rocks and minerals. A bassoonist with a love of classical music, he had many albums in that genre. Later, as a young man in the Boston area, Paul roamed flea markets and antique shows looking for Depression glass and china. He became an accomplished gardener with an amazing knowledge of perennials, shrubs, and trees with an aptitude for creating landscapes in harmony with their spaces. On Sundays he could be found at the Arnold Arboretum with his brother, wandering the paths, studying the specimens. Sadly, in 1988 he contracted a virus that triggered an autoimmune response that could not be repressed by his doctors. His physical disabilities were severe, and would become progressively debilitating over a more than three decade period. He threw himself entirely into work, where he unfailingly demonstrated his loyalty, integrity, intelligence and worth. Both the colleagues with whom he worked and the clients he worked for, maintained their allegiance to him, and respect for his work and service, even as his physical health declined. Paul made a life for himself that was meaningful. He will be greatly missed by his circle of family and friends, co-workers and clients. Mr. Lowry is survived by his sister, Margaret Lowry, her husband, Bradley Steele, their children, of Winchester and Somerville, and his longtime caregiver, Edelmira and her family. He will be interred in Belmont Cemetery.
