Deceased July 30, 2019
Myles Lowell, a Michigan native, died peacefully at his Beverly Hills, Calif., home on July 30, with loved ones at his bedside. He was 94. Born on Sept. 20, 1924, in Grosse Pointe, Mich., Myles followed his father into the real estate business. He had a flair for friendship and a love of travel. He befriended and often regaled a small Who’s Who of celebrated characters. These traits took him from the ballrooms and ski slopes of Europe to the mansions of Newport, R.I., and the glamorous homes of Palm Springs, Calif. Paris, in particular, was a city with which he had an ongoing love affair. His wit and sense of humor were legendary, as was his ability to recall names, places and events from decades past and spin them into colorful stories. He matched his affinity for high society with a love of animals and a lifelong advocacy for the protection of all creatures great and small. He was rarely without a beloved Schnauzer by his side.
