Robert L. Lowe, Sr.

1927 - 2020

The Robert L. Lowe, Sr. Foundation is the namesake of Robert Leon Lowe, Sr., a native of Penllyn, PA. Robert attended Ambler High School, and was a military veteran with the United States Air Corps. He received a World War II Victory Medal, and Certificate of Honorable Discharge.

Robert was recognized as “Citizen of the Week” by the Ambler Gazette in 1971 for taking pride in his Penllyn neighborhood. He was known in his neighborhood for being on his tractor cleaning out littered yards or towing away abandoned cars. Robert also attended monthly Lower Gwynedd township meetings to urge the township to enforce residents to maintain their properties to the township standards.

Robert had positive, good work ethics. His career and work experiences consisted of being the Maintenance Foreman of the Fort Washington Industrial Park, an Operating Engineer for Lindy Concrete Company, then to becoming partner of Lindy Concrete Company. This partnership flourished as Robert and his business partner, Philip Lindy, began their career path in the real estate investment industry, what we know today as Lindy Property Management. His final major investment with Lindy Property Management was The Towers at Wyncote in Wyncote, PA.

Robert invested extensively in real estate, purchasing and selling several commercial and residential properties. He once owned the Richfield Gas Station on Butler Pike in Ambler, PA. Robert also built and designed the home that he resided in until his demise in Upper Gwynedd Township.

Robert was active in many community projects. He served as Manager in the Lower Gwynedd Little League, he worked on political campaigns of several local candidates, he helped with the paving of Bethlehem Baptist Church parking lot in Penllyn, and he paved the driveway of the Rose Valley Cemetery. In 2006, Robert received a Certificate of Appreciation for his service in World War II from State Legislator Kate Harper, and in 2007 he received a Resolution from State Representative Dwight Evans in recognition of his community service. Robert established the Robert L. Lowe, Sr. Foundation with his grandson Kenneth Lowe, Jr. in December of 2019. The foundation is a Non-Profit Organization that believes in supporting and giving back to the community.

Although Robert’s interest and passion was real estate, his favorite pastime was spending time with, caring for, and providing for his family. He was well known for his love of Cadillacs, the Philadelphia Eagles, and giving back to his community. Robert was a good man with a caring and giving heart. However, his most important attribute was he was a kind and loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great grandfather, and friend to all that knew him.
