Lowell held multiple positions throughout his career in Hendricks, Windom, & Heron Lake. He started working in Hendricks for the U.S. Postal Service in 1956 and retired in 1982 as Postmaster.

Lowell was a jack of all trades and a perfectionist like his father. He raised his family of 5 children; Cheryl, Michael, Jeanne, Wanda & Wendy on an 80 acre farm SW of Hendricks raising crops and animals and lived with Joyce there for 42 years. He enjoyed farming and no one was ever a stranger at their home. Every cousin, child and grandchild have fond memories of fun times at the farm. Once retired they spent winters in Pharr, Texas for 17 years. In 2000, after living in Hendricks for 75 years and being a great member of the community, Lowell & Joyce moved to Longmont, Colorado.

A true part of the greatest generation, Lowell led by example. He was a hard worker, a perfectionist with a great sense of humor, a contagious giggle, always helpful, proud & compassionate. He was a wonderful son, brother, friend, husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He instilled in those around him a sense of purpose, commitment, loyalty, generosity and love.

Lowell is survived by his daughter Wendy Conder and a large extended family.
