CONCORD - Lowell Edwin Alcorn, age 62, died very suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013.

They lived in Richardson, Texas, until 1996 when they moved to western New York. The family moved to Concord in 1999.
Lowell was a wonderful, thoughtful, caring, loving husband and father of two very accomplished sons, Edwin "Eddie" R. Alcorn, age 28, and Dennis "Denny" G. Alcorn, age 24. Lowell was a strong supporter of Cannon School in Concord where Eddie and Denny attended school and currently are active members of the Cannon School Alumni Board.

Lowell was highly respected, admired and loved by his family, colleagues and many friends. He was a Managing Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, Charlotte office, and he had over 30 years of lending and consulting experience. He led a wide range of consulting projects for the industry's leading commercial, single-family mortgage, and auto lenders covering business process improvement, systems integration, financial management, loss mitigation, technology selection and implementation. His clients included many of the top ten mortgage lenders and he had several large-scale projects focusing on technology and operations improvements.
