A sports nut, her dad approached everything as a game. "He would tackle it; he was relentless," she said.
She said her father grew up poor in Easton, Penn., and was the first person in his family to go to college, entering Lafayette College on a basketball scholarship. But once he was there, he didn't want to be distracted from his studies, so he got other jobs and dropped the scholarship, Marshall said.
Lowe joined IBM in 1962, when he finished college with a physics degree.
He went on to serve as an IBM vice president and president of its entry systems division, which oversaw the development and manufacturing of IBM's personal computers and other businesses. He left the company in 1988 to work for Xerox, and later became president of Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.
Messages left for IBM spokespeople weren't returned.
In lieu of services, the family is planning a celebration of Lowe's life, but a date hasn't been finalized, Marshall said.
Lowe also is survived by wife, Cristina Lowe, four other children — Julie Kremer, James Lowe, Gabriela Lowe and William Daniel Lowe — and 10 grandchildren.
