Lowell gave a true meaning to the quote, "children of the breadman, milkman or beerman." He was a hardworking man who always put his family first. Lowell had a true love for bluegrass music, especially Bill Monroe. He was also a talented musician who enjoyed playing the banjo and guitar. Lowell was an avid Nascar and Cincinnati Red's fan and a boxing enthusiast. He will be missed deeply by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and there was one thing Lowell knew for sure, he knew he was always loved.
