Robert Lowrey was a piano authority, retailer and friend

Leaside native Robert Lowrey died on Christmas Day. Mr. Lowrey is survived by his wife Kim of 35 years, by his daughter Katie, sister Sylvia Christensen and other family. His business, Robert Lowrey Piano Experts, located at Eglinton Ave. E. and Brentcliffe Drive, is a community landmark. His obituary is published in the Toronto Star and reads in part: “Rob’s keen interest in all things allowed him to speak with anyone regarding any topic, whether it was sports, politics, literature, history, music or the arts. He had an extensive knowledge of all these subjects but at the same time he was humble and had a way with people, which put them at ease. He was extremely thoughtful, sensitive, articulate and witty and took joy teasing those with whom he was closest. He loved his dogs, whom he walked or cross-country skied with every morning and could not sleep at night until he knew the birdfeeders were filled for the morning birds.”
