60 some odd years living next door to two wonderful and caring people. This family was a mentor to me in so many ways. You will be missed by all.

I have many fond memories of our early childhoods sharing birthdays and time together with family. May God grant you peace and comfort during this season. Uncle Lowell was always positive and there for family.

Lowell will always be remembered for ALL the people he inspired to be firefighters and emts. He loved the firehouse. The only thing he loved more was Margie. Margie and him use to babysit me. He had his trains and even helped.me build a garage. I know he is at peace now and I will meet him on the other side. My condolences to Margie, his family and all of his friends.

We were so sadden to hear of the death of our dear friend, Lowell. We enjoyed many good times together not only at their home or our home, but also in Ulm, Germany. Lowell will be greatly missed and our deepest sympathy goes out to Margie and the boys and their families. Our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you.

Uncle Lowell. This is to you. We were truly blessed to have had you in our lives and much more to be able to call you family. I am so very saddened to hear that we will never see you again on this earth. You were the very greatest at making people feel good about themselves, you were kind and you were a good person. This world would be a far greater place if we only had more people like you in it. God knew what he was doing when he blessed you with such a great family. HE knew you would treat them right and teach them well. What a loss we suffer today but that is just for today. Rest now and keep a watchful eye upon us. We will meet again and until then....love you!!!

I will always remember Grandpop as being goofy and silly. Joking around and trying to have some fun in any situation - particularly with his grandkids! I'll always remember that he had me convinced for years that his middle-name was Lover: Lowell Lover Lam! I'm glad he was able to live a full, happy life with his true love and a great big, caring family. I will miss him very much.
