Lowell Ross McLaren, husband of beloved wife, Denise Zentner of Saskatoon, passed away at home surrounded by family, on July 21, 2022, at the age of 67 years. Lowell was born in Yorkton, Sask.
With an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for music, Lowell lived, worked, played, learned, created, and performed in Langenburg, Calgary, Rocky Mountain House, Japan, Australia and Saskatoon. He had a mind for business, with music in his heart. As his last stop, and full circle, he returned to Saskatchewan and gradually found joy and inspiration in the unique and special Saskatoon music community, including a variety of bands and choirs. Lowell was known and loved as the Barefoot Drummer.
In every role and challenge, Lowell made a lasting impression with his very personalized sense of humor and notorious storytelling. He loved people, travel and cooking. Lowell developed friendships, with people and dogs, and created lasting relationships all over the world. He left a trail of encouragement and inspiration.
As well as his loving wife, Lowell was loved and will be sorely missed by his siblings, Randy, Jacki and Jan, Uncle Bev and Auntie Rae, many close cousins, and Denise’s numerous, special and kind family members. Lowell has so many precious friends, who will dearly miss him in their daily lives.
Lowell is predeceased by his parents, Ross and Beryl McLaren.
