Dean Luke "Deano" Lowerre Obituary
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished brother Dean after an extended illness. At the time of death, he was surrounded by loving family members and a staff of wonderful caregivers at Silverado Beach Cities Memory Care Community in Redondo Beach.

Dean is survived by his sisters Linda Wahl and Janet Laws, brothers George Lowerre and Mark Lowerre, sisters-in-law Ann Lowerre, Vicki Lowerre and Chris Salem, brothers-in-law Vince Salem and Rolly Wahl, and first cousin Bill Lund. He was predeceased by his parents Barbara and George Lowerre, whom he devotedly cared for in their declining years, and his dear sister Karen Lowerre Salem. He was loved by his 9 nieces and nephews and 10 grandnieces and grandnephews, who always looked forward to hearing "Uncle Deano" play his guitar and harmonica for them. Whenever they saw him, with a twinkle in his eye he just happened to have a couple of extra harps in his back pocket.

Throughout his life Dean displayed a special gift for music (guitar, harmonica and ukulele), often accompanied by his melodic and captivating voice. He composed many of his own tunes, including a lovely tribute song for his late mother. Frequently entertaining family and friends, he was also a popular performer in local clubs. Dean enjoyed gardening, landscaping and home maintenance tasks, as well. Growing up in the South Bay, he loved the ocean, surfing and swimming off the California coast and in Hawaii, where he lived for a time and revisited over the years.

The family would like to acknowledge the professional and compassionate care provided by the nurses, caregivers and Hospice team at Silverado Beach Cities Memory Care Community in Redondo Beach.
We will always remember Dean with a song in our hearts, aptly expressed by one of Hawaii's legendary musicians, Kui Lee, a favorite of Dean's:

"I'll remember you
Long after this endless summer is gone,
I'll be lonely, oh so lonely,
Living only to remember you..."

A celebration of Dean's life and scattering of his ashes will take place at a time and date to be announced in Manhattan Beach and Hawaii.
