Joe Kubert School Class of 1989 Mini-Reunion

Jim Keefe and Pat Lowry

First met Pat Lowery freshman year of the Joe Kubert School back in 1986. We were roommates in an apartment over a bar in Dover, New Jersey — He got me a part-time gig when I was first starting out (in the Empire State building no less) — And New Year’s Eve 1992 (along with fellow Kubert School alum Mark McMurray) we celebrated in Times Square.

Since then he’s worked on such film franchises as Star Wars, Spider-Man, Lord of the Rings – and as a major name drop, has worked for legendary stop-motion animator Phil Tippett

I haven’t seen him since the San Diego Comic Con about twenty years ago, so I made the trek out to St. Louis, Missouri and visited him at his current entrepreneurial pursuit, owner of http://relaxapartmanitara.com/1/casinoclassic-canada-casino-details-additional-68/ The Good Luck Bar and Grill.

In honor of this momentous occasion we recreated a pic from a quarter century prior.
FYI: My wife Deb stood in for Pat’s friend Dave from the original pic.

Had a GREAT time catching up over a few Guinness.
Here’s to good friends who have survived the long haul – Sláinte!
