Car Club hosts Longmont fundraiser for the family of Skyline’s Savian Lowe – Longmont Times-Callo

Friends and community members turned out for a car show in honor of Skyline High Senior Savian Lowe on Sunday, sharing memories of his big personality and offering support to raise money for Lowe’s family.

Savian was 17 years old when he unexpectedly died on 7 September.

His parents, Fred Lowe and Latasha Sanders, brought a Ford F-150 truck that was to be his high school graduation to the Longmont car show, with a banner hanging from the truck that people could sign.

“Every parent wants to say that their son is great,” said Fred Lowe. “The confirmation from the community and everyone saying the same thing, it has been amazing. The community has really come out to our guy and tell us they love him and love us.”

Savian was born in Louisiana, while his family is originally from a small town in Arkansas. Fred Lowe said they had moved from Boulder to Longmont about five years ago, after the flood of support after the death of his son proved Longmont was home.

“I’m just loving love,” he said. “I haven’t felt more at home.”

The family described Savian as a natural defender who fell in love with football at the age of 4. Along with his love of playing football, Savian loved all animals, loved to cook and loved to play music and drums. He loved racing cars, motorcycles and “fast anything and everything”.

Several Skyline High football players joined head coach Michael Silva at Sunday’s event to support the family. Silva said it’s hard to watch the students grieve as they mourn their friend, whom he described as “larger than life”.

“We all loved that friend,” he said. “We will do whatever we can to respect and support them. We can only love each other through this. “

Close friend and football teammate Adrian Rabun, whose father suggested the car show fundraiser, said Savien lives by the golden rule: “Treat people the way you want to.”

“You’ll smile every time you see him,” he said. “Even if you didn’t know him, you felt like you did. He cared about a lot of people.”

He said the support of a close football team, as well as seeing a huge turnout in the fundraiser, is helping as he is mourning his friend.

“It’s great to see how everyone is coming together to remember him and the impact he has on people,” he said.

Rabun’s father, Mike Futrell, is the vice president of the True Reflections Car Club, which organizes Sunday car shows and raffles. Local business owner Dale Catechis, who founded Oscar Blues Brewery, offered his property for the event after the club learned they could not use the Skyline High parking lot as planned.

More than 70 cars entered the Sunday show.

Ken Maze of Longmont brought two cars—a ’69 El Camino with a detailed painting of Longmont’s old Starwoo Drive-in Theater and a ’57 Chevy two-door hard top—to the show. He bought the ’57 after graduating high school, and he’s restored it twice since then.

“The show is for a good reason,” he said.
