Entered into this life February 15, 1929. Entered into eternity December 24, 2017


Lowell was born in Ft. Worth, Texas, the youngest of the children. Eventually the family moved to Emory, Texas. He enjoyed living in this rural farm area where he could ride his horse “Dan” to school.


He would later follow his brother “Jimmie” to California to go to work. He worked for Chrysler for over 30 years. After retirement he worked for the Downey Schools.


In 1955 Lowell and his wife Dolores moved to Downey where they lived and raised their family. Although “Dude” lived in the city, he still enjoyed the outdoors. He frequently would take his sons hunting, fishing, and camping.


Always with a smile, usually sharing a joke or funny story, our father was a good hard working, God fearing man who was well loved and will be missed.


He was married for over 65 years when his wife passed away earlier this year. They are survived by their three children Lola, Randy and Arl, and their spouses and children.
