Daniel James Lowery Sr., born on February 19, 1941, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, September 6, 2020. His final days were spent surrounded by his family, sharing memories of his very memorable life. He was the beloved husband of 55 years to Carol Firmin Lowery. Loving father of Daniel J. Lowery Jr. Son of the late Charles Lowery Sr. and May Fisher Lowery. Brother of Millie Decker and the late Elizabeth Battle, Manuel Lowery, Rita Hatch, Beverly Guidry, Charles Lowery Jr. and Fred Lowery. He is also survived and fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins, dear friends and especially his Dachshund “Rusty” that brought him such comfort in his final days.

Daniel was born in New Orleans, LA and was a longtime resident of St. Bernard Parish where he enjoyed a 39-year career with the U.S. Postal Service. Following hurricane Katrina Daniel and his family settled in Hammond, LA. Although Daniel suffered long and dearly from Parkinson’s disease, he possessed strength, perseverance, and an ability to overcome incredible odds and physical challenges. His courage has led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. Daniel will always be remembered for his loyalty and dedication to his family, his loving spirit, and his laughter. He was a wonderful example of what it means to care for others and will be deeply missed by us all.

Our memory of Dan began a short time after or post Katrina.While we knew Carol from OLPS Dan became friends after moving to Hammond where we enjoyed gathering out in our back yard and on occasion dinner and outings.
Carol and Dan walked their dog Rusty sometimes twice daily passing our
house .Rusty was always glad to see Sue and me greeting is and pulling poor Carol with no effort.We also made quite a few building projects together with Rusty helping.
we will miss Dan very much .We wish all the best to Carol.

Dan was my uncle even though he was only two years older. My Mom was his older sister. We made many trips from Houston to New Orleans when I was a kid. Dan and I spent a lot of fun time together going to movies at the Saenger and Joy theaters downtown. We would walk to Canal Street and take the streetcar to downtown. It cost all of $.07 with two transfers. We also spent time with his friends. Sometimes we would walk to a corner grocery store and split a large roast beef po boy and wash it down with Barq’s root beer. Those are great memories. Dan was a great friend as well as an uncle. Although we did not see much of each other in later years because I moved around in my job, I will always have wonderful memories of him.
