OBITUARY

Harold Edward Lowe

April 10, 1941April 24, 2021

Harold Edward Lowe passed away April 24, 2021 at 5:43 a.m. while walking to his easy chair, with the hopes of catching an early morning softball game replay on TV. This might have been his best way possible to go, as that is how he had spent his best days; watching and coaching his girls and countless kids play that sport, and all sports he loved! He lived big and loved big and his eyes lit up when he saw his family and especially his children and grandchildren. He was full of praise for those he loved, whether family or friends. Born April 10, 1941 he had just celebrated his 80th birthday. He was predeceased by his parents, Charner and Jessie Lowe of Washburn, Arkansas and his daughter, Lee Anne Lowe Goines.

Always a hard worker, Harold was employed by Tankersley Brothers Packing Co. from the age of 16 until they closed in 1984. He then began his second career, working at Baldor Electric until he suffered a heart attack and his health forced him into an early retirement in 2002.

Harold is survived by his wife, the love of his life, June Carson Lowe. Although most who knew them would have bet that neither Harold nor their marriage would have survived his 57 Chevy, they would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on July 14 of this year. He is also survived by a source of his great pride in his life, his daughter, Robin Lowe Swede and her husband, Grant of Little Rock; the joys of his life, his grandchildren, Cole B. Swede and his wife, Cheyenne, Chase Swede and Carson Swede, all of Little Rock and her fiancé, Hunter Gowen of Searcy, AR. Raised as one of four brothers in Greenwood, Arkansas, he is survived by his brothers, Royce (Linda) Lowe of Jacksonville, Arkansas, Wayne (Sharon) Lowe and Carroll R. (Tresa ) Lowe both still of Greenwood. In addition, he is survived by his sister-in-law, who he raised as his daughter from the age of 12, Cynthia Carson Davis and her husband, Larry of Dayton and his son-in-law, Perry L. Goines, Jr. of Greenwood. Although raised a Greenwood Bulldog, Harold was “converted” to a Mansfield Tiger and was for years seen on the sidelines of every home game, carrying the chains as a member of the chain gang. He was also a very vocal fan of the Lady Tigers basketball teams during the years his daughters played. He amassed a large group of friends over the years.

His honorary pallbearers are Lendall Williams, Charlie Hartsell, Elba Gene Lowe, Mike Carson, Lonnie Hurt, Gary Colley, Chris Campbell, Jeff Brewer, Mike Brewer and Perry L. Goines, Jr. Harold was a longtime member of Dayton Church of Christ where the memorial service will be held, Thursday, April 29 at 2 p.m. under the direction of McConnell Funeral Home of Greenwood. The service will be conducted by Bro. Larry Bridges. Memorials may be made in Harold’s memory to the Dayton Community Building Auxiliary, 1101 E. Hwy 252, Huntington, AR 72940 or Dayton Church of Christ Building Fund, 2230 E. Hwy 252, Huntington, AR 72940.

I remember being at their house before I even started school. June babysat me and I played with Robin.I have to admit, the first time I saw him, I was scared. However, It didn’t take long for Harold to win me over. He was truly a gentle giant. My prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
