Dozens ride for Army vet, Harley master tech who died of COVID-19
BAY MINETTE, Ala. (BIKER DAD) — There’s Always something different about a biker funeral. Yes, everyone is dressed in black, but it’s black leather. Yes, everyone is respectful. But with 50 Harleys in attendance, it’s hard to keep it quiet. And, every Patriot Guard mission is important. But there was just something even more special about the mission Saturday for 65-year-old Danny Lowry.
Danny likely put his hands on nearly every one of the motorcycles gleaming in the Alabama heat yards away from his final resting place. He was a beloved master tech at Mobile Bay Harley Davidson. He clearly didn’t just touch bikes, he also touched lives as evidenced by the large number of bikers, Masons, and others who came to pay their respects. Danny’s family clearly reached far beyond blood.

Lowry died Monday after a battle with COVID-19. He not only served as a master tech but also served his country. Between active duty and the reserves, he put in 38 years of decorated service.
Mobile Bay Harley closed its service department for a few hours Saturday so his co-workers could ride to the service. The Patriot Guard led them and members of the Mobile Harley Owners Group chapter from a Bay Minette funeral home out to the cemetery. His biker brothers escorted him to the gravesite. His Mason brothers performed his committal ceremony.
