I’m so sorry for your loss. Jack always had a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone. I remember him mostly for his shiny tractors. We drove them through a parade one year and he beamed from the positive comments about them. He took great pride in his family and belongings. He will he greatly missed.

I remember Mr. Low well from when I was his math student in the 6th grade at South Elementary. I have thought of him often through the years. He was a great teacher and definitely a favorite from my childhood. He took his teaching seriously, and he had a way about him that made us kids relax and learn. Now, at 74 years of age, I look back on those times and realize how determined he was to prepare us for our future. He was one of the best!

We have a lot of memories of Jack & Millie. Jack mowed his lawn twice a week come rain or shine and never allowed a leaf to take up residence. It was a pleasure to be neighbors with him, knowing that he would call us if anything was out of the norm. Always had a shiny new truck in his garage. He will be missed

Sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I have many memories of Jack and the times we visited. He lived many years next door to my parents, who also enjoyed his friendship, as well as his family.

Again, may the Lord comfort you during this time.

To the Family

I ask God to send down his comfort at this time to all of you. Mr. Low was a fine upright man. He was always thinking positive. He pulled me over several times and talk to me, a lot of times correcting me along with high words of encouragement. We need more men like Jack. I thought of him as my time spent in the U.S. Army myself, I never forgot him. It is one thing for certain, if there were many many more people like Jack Low.......what a world we would have. An old gospel son comes to mind as I close...." Soon we all be done with the trouble of this old world. Mr. Low Thank you Sir! For you words of wisdom. May God bless all of you in times like these... Gary!

Mr. Low was my 6th grade teacher and coach at South Elementary and he moved to Junior High when I did. He was a wonderful man, an excellent teacher, and a true leader of young people. I have spoken fondly of him throughout the years. During my college years at HPU I worked for J.C. Penney Co. Mr. Low would make deliveries in the summer and we always took the opportunity to talk and catch up. He always called me Mac and I can still hear his voice today. Wonderful memories of a wonderful man.

Dear Family of Mr. Low,
I can’t tell you how sad this makes me. I’ve known Mar. Low since grade school. I was blessed to have him as my fifth grade teacher at South Ward and also for home room. One time when I was talking too much he gave me the option of singing a song or staying after school. So, I stood up and sang a song about a frog and left. He was such a wonderful man. I was blessed to know him again after he retired when he delivered cars for the dealership and occasionally drove Mother on short trips out of town. Really, I can’t tell you how sad this makes me. He was a gentle and kind man. I loved him and very much doubt there is anyone who didn’t. He was a very special man and friend.
My love to all of you,
Pamela Holley
