During the Ice storm of 1991, Uncle Lowell and Aunt Patty welcomed us into their home. While it bitter cold outside, we enjoyed their company, warmth and kindness.
Uncle Lowell taught me the nuances of Bocce and how to mow my lawn, but more importantly he taught me kindness, caring and how to be a good man... just like him.

The memories I have of Lowell as we were growing up are filled with laughter. As my cousin, we shared the Powers gatherings that were so much fun. I’m sure he’s enjoying that same laughter and fun in heaven with our Powers clan.

A Brother-in-law? Much more like a brother. A loving man that would and did anything to help others. He was a rock for me along with my sister Patty when my wife Peg passed away with cancer.I will always remember all the good times we had as families with Lowell grilling or making Thanksgiving gravy .
The Lord is getting one great man.
Love you Lowell

My dad has been my hero ever since I was a little girl. He will forever be in my heart and I will miss him always. All that I know about love, faith and the importance of being kind came from him. I will see you again in glory, dad. I love you!

Patty, laraine and I are so saddened to learn of Lowell's passing and of your great loss. Patty Broome called to tell me of Lowell's illness and then his sudden passing. We recall fondly the family parties we shared over the years. We have been searching the D&C for an update. Apparently, because we live in Wayne Co. our D&C does not contain the complete obituaries. Fortunately the online version does. We hope to see you Saturday at Lowell's service. With love, David and Laraine Frohlich
