Henry T. Lowe, 91, retired law professor at the University of Missouri, died on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 while visiting his family.

A private memorial service was held.

A native of Colorado, he loved the outdoors and spent as much time as he could in the mountains hiking, skiing, and soaking up the views. He was an avid sports fan and served as the MU faculty representative to the Big 8 Conference. He also loved music and was very involved with bringing outstanding artists to the campus of MU. He served on the board of the Aspen Music Festival and traveled the world to hear the best symphony orchestras, chamber music, and opera. His friends and family loved to hear him recite poetry, and he had a poem in his excellent memory for every occasion.

Henry Lowe graduated from Colorado College, Harvard Law School and earned an LLB from Columbia University in New York. He came to MU Law School in 1959 after working as an attorney in Portland, Ore., for several years. For over three decades he was an outstanding teacher and mentor to his students.

After retirement, he remained active as a legal consultant. Henry was passionate about preserving the natural beauty of Snowmass Creek in Colorado. He helped to form, and donated countless hours to, a non-profit group dedicated to its preservation.

Henry and his wife Nancy were married 63 years.

He is survived by his wife; two children, Edith Auner and Sandy Lowe; and six grandchildren, Eric and Mary Auner, and Harry, Christopher, Katherine, and George Lowe.
