Vale Adam Lowick – The Unofficial Mayor of Sutherland Street Lane Cove

Adam Lowick, a well known local in the Lane Cove Community, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in March at the age of 55. He left behind his wife and three children.

Adam was a colourful Lane Cove Identity and could often be seen grabbing a coffee and chatting with locals at Unwind Expresso Bar. Adam will be sorely missed for his sense of humour, knowledge of local gossip, and enjoying a beer.

Adam was well known for his participation in the community over the past 30 years, from helping out at the canteen Lane Cove Public School to being an active member local rugby community.

Adam was one of the driving forces being the people power campaign to save the popular Cox’s, Lane Park.  The Lane Cove Council wanted to turn it into a carpark.

Adam was also one of the driving forces behind Sutherland Streets domination of the Lane Cove Christmas Lights Street Competition. He made sure that Lane Cove Christmas Lights Competition was never boring.  Each year Sutherland Street donated their Light Up Lane Cove winnings to the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network.

A fundraiser has been created to support his 3 children and wife he left behind in his dream to complete the building of the family home.

You can donate to the gofundme campaign here.

We will miss seeing Adam’s huge smile around Lane Cove.
