Lowell proudly served his country in the Air Force and was honorably discharged after 11 years of service. For many years he enjoyed working with children serving as a referee in Marcellus. He was also a member of the American Legion Post 220, Lawton, and a faithful member of the Unity Missionary Baptist Church in Paw Paw where he taught adult Sunday school.

Lowell was the owner of the Napa parts store in Paw Paw many years back. He was an avid sportsman all of his life. In high school he was given the nickname "LD" standing for Liquid Death, as he was a very high performer in football. He also loved to go fishing, golfing and bowling. During the warmer months, Lowell took great pride in maintaining his yard.
