Tragedy struck at the Bolder Boulder yesterday.

Ross “Jack” J. Lowe, 65, collapsed on the course near the intersection of 19th Street and Balsam Avenue and went into cardiac arrest. A call for help went out at 9:43 a.m., but despite immediate response and transport to Boulder Community Hospital, he never regained consciousness.

In its 29 year history, Mr. Lowe was the first casualty. The medical response was swift, perhaps even swifter than if Mr. Lowe had gone into cardiac arrest at a hospital. R.I.P. Mr. Lowe.
