  1. This origin for Lowe as born in Charlottesville March 17, 1964, and living here for a few years has been difficult to prove.

    Neither the phone books nor the UVa Directories for those years lists a Lowe with the appropriate letter C except John C Lowe, a one-time pal of mine unrelated to Rob. (That Lowe became Chief Gordon’s law partner.)

    The owner of the house or apartment where Rob Lowe spent his first years could probably follow the American dream by jacking up the rent.

    Somewhere there must be a source on the net that lists the father’s full name.

He was raised in a in Dayton, Ohio before moving to the Westside of Los Angeles.
