Richard Wayne Lowell

January 27, 1956 — May 1, 2023

RRR Rambling Richard of Ramona

Richard loved movement. Be it in music, dance or electric. His action began in Milwaukee,

Wisconsin. At age 4 his parents, Gertrude Seifert and Vernon Lowell moved to Clairmont, San Diego.

Richard attended Clairmont High School and graduated from SDSU in electrical engineering. Sony was

just opening shop in San Diego. Directly after graduating, Sony hired him to co-ordinate the San Diego

and Japanese shops. He frequently traveled to Japan attending technical and national trade shows.

Richard's personality style and Japanese sensibilities were a cultural match. After 15 years with Sony,

Richard retired early to care for his mother for 8 years until her death at home. During this time he

established and ran a pirate radio station, the original Ramona Town Radio, until the authorities

intervened. He also built and sold computers and had a shoe repair business. Richard was an avid

Ballroom dancer of over 30 years. His favorite dances were Hustle and West Coast Swing. Tall and

slender, he had a Ballroom dancer's elegant figure and it was fun to dance with him.

As Duke Ellington said and Django agreed..."lt don't mean a thing. If you ain't got the swing." So

till I swing with you again, I know you're dancing among the stars in the moonlight. Here, the ballroom is

dark.
