Lowell was a graduate of Beaufort High School, Beaufort, South Carolina. He was a millwright by trade, having worked for Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in Findlay and formerly Roppe Corp. and Atlas Crankshaft in Fostoria.
He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing, small-game hunting, trapping, berry picking, morel mushroom picking and gardening, not always just for the pleasure of it, but for bringing home food for the family table. And he loved to cook to fill that table. While in the wilderness, he also enjoyed searching for and finding arrowheads. Lowell was a talented and gifted handyman and builder, as well.
Lowell was a thoughtful, understanding and giving man. The “smartest and toughest” man and father. A “go-to man,” a “go-getter.” He was clever and quick-witted, and adored his children.
