OBITUARY

A. Lynn Lowe

March 6, 1936August 14, 2010

A. Lynn Lowe, 74, of Texarkana, Arkansas passed away on August 14, 2010 at his residence.

Mr. Lowe was born on March 6, 1936 to Ruth McKinley Lowe and Jesse Luther Lowe in Miller County, Arkansas. He was preceded in death by a brother, Jesse Luther Lowe Jr. He graduated from Garland High School and attended Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia for two years before he graduated in 1959 with a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural engineering from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. He was proud to be a lifelong farmer in southwest Arkansas.

One of the things that made Mr. Lowe the happiest was serving others. He currently was serving as board chairman of the Southwest Arkansas Electric Cooperative Commission, where he considered everyone there his family. He was Arkansas Republican Party chairman from 1974-1980, and Republican National Committeeman from Arkansas from 1980-1988.

Lynn loved his wife, family, state, country, but most of all he loved his Lord. He was an elder and Sunday school teacher at First Lutheran Church in Texarkana, Texas. He was especially proud that his daughter Ruthie taught the little ones in Sunday school also. We want to thank him for his wise counsel, for all of the special mementos he made with love for us in his workshop, and for his kindness. The treasure of his life was being Warren's 'Poppa'. And he was a wonderful one.

Survivors include his wife Jean Lowe of Texarkana; one son and daughter in law Michael and Diana Lowe of Texarkana; two daughters and son in law, Ruthie Lowe of Texarkana and Martha and Chris Robertson of Little Rock, Arkansas. He is also survived by one brother Robert McKinley Lowe of Weems, Virginia and two sisters Jean Davis of Mesa, Arizona and Dot Fisher of Ames, Iowa. Three grandchildren Christopher Robertson Jr. of Little Rock, Arkansas, Julia Rae Wagner of College Station, Texas and Warren Patrick Robertson of Little Rock, Arkansas.

He will be missed!

Memorial service will be 4 p.m., Saturday, August 21, 2010 at First Lutheran Church with Dr. Berry Kolb officiating. Burial service will follow at 6 p.m. at the family farm. Services are under the direction of East Funeral Home - Downtown.

Mrs. Lowe, I have many fond memories in the neighborhood going to see Martha and Ruthie. You and Mr. Lowe made me feel very welcomed. Mr. Lowe was a sweet man and you all are very special to me!

Dear Mrs. Lowe, Mike, Ruthie,Martha, and family,
I'll always remember what a sweet, warm person Mr. Lowe was. He always had a kind word and was sincerely interested in how others were doing. He was a great friend to my father and a comforter to my mom when dad died. I'm sure he and my dad are in heaven now telling good Republican jokes! I know how very sad you all are right now. I pray that you will be comforted by knowing how many people are praying for you. Sincerely, Julie Kunkel Patterson

Dear Jean and family,
So sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. We have many pleasant memories of living next door to you when David and Lynn were in school at UofA. Both of you were so kind, gracious and very neighborly. I'm so sorry for the pain of his loss for you. Will be remembering you and your family in our prayers.

Deepest Sympathy to all the Lowes.
I have fond memories from childhood
about Lynn and his parents: Christmas
plays at church, 4-H Club, Lynn and his
mother both taking piano lessons and of course, both our mothers being such
good friends through the years. God bless all the good memories.

Jean,Mike, Ruthie, and Martha: I have the greatest memories of growing up on Arnold Drive with you all at the end of the street; most especially seeing Lynn drive down the street coming home from the farm while we played in the creek or on the bridge. He will be missed by my family more than you can know. I will always remember him as one of the greatest men I had the pleasure to know and be raised by in our neighborhood. I have missed you all since you moved back to the farm. You are all in my thoughts as you travel this path - know that God is holding you in the hollow of His hand.

Know it has been a very long week for each of you. I wish I had the magical word to take away the pain and emptiness that you have experienced and will endure, but I don't. You have to have Faith in God and accept Aylmer Lynn is in a better place. He is in Heaven with all our other family members. I know mother (Juanita Garrett) was there to welcome him with her hugs and kisses. It has been nearly a year (Sept 8,2009) since she passed and entered her place of comfort and joy. Lyn and I will be there with you on Saturday. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you today, tomorrow, and always !
With Sympathy and Love,

Mike, our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.Sorry to hear of Lynn's death. He was a person to be looked up to. I remember first meeting Lynn in 1968 when we moved to Texarkana. I remember a story he told as we had coffee in the old Garland Truck stop. I wonder is he telling stoies to our LORD now? Lynn was such a fine gentleman. May God bless your family at this difficult time.
