Mary Jean, “Friends forever”, a term I knew to be true after being with Lowell only a few times starting a lot of years ago. He was a true friend, always upbeat and could even make my bad rounds enjoyable. I will miss him greatly. Love and Blessings, Gene and Jeanie

I feel fortunate to be able to call Lowell my "golf buddy". I first knew Lowell from work at the Ohio Casualty (Bond Department guru). Then, we started hitting the ball together, adding a million laughs, and situations that just happen when you share the passion. I always considered Lowell a "class act" and will miss him greatly.
