Larry Lowe

Larry R. Lowe, devoted husband, loving father and esteemed educator, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014. Mr. Lowe was an accomplished and respected teacher.

He always strove to inspire his students to achieve excellence in all facets of their education, and many considered him to be a guiding force in choosing the paths of their own careers.

Larry was an avid outdoorsman and true artist. He enjoyed archaeology, stargazing, landscaping, painting, creating original artwork and just communing with nature. He was also a committed family patriarch, spending much time and taking great care of his wife, children, neighbors and pets.
