Don passed away quietly in sleep on March 4, 2017, while living in Lake Havasu City, Ariz. Don was born in San Antonio, Texas, to parents Glynn and Florine Lowe. Don's family moved to Alaska in 1968.
Don played baseball and basketball while going to school at Government Hill Elementary School, Central Junior High School and Bartlett High School.
In the late '70s and early '80s, Don lived in San Diego, Calif., then moved back to Alaska, and worked in the oil patch for Nabors Drilling, Brinkeroff and parker drilling, as well as service companies on the North Slope.
In the late '90s, Don traveled to Wyoming and worked as a roughneck on drilling rigs.
Around 2008, Don moved to Lake Havasu and lived there for approximately two years, and then returned to Homer, Alaska.
Don lived in Homer until 2013. While living in Homer, Don worked as customer service for a shipping/office business. Don moved back to Lake Havasu in 2014, with his brother, Micheal Lowe.
Don is preceded in death by his father, Glynn Lowe; and brother, Ted Lowe.
He is survived by his mother, Florine Lowe; sister, Gwen Watkins; brothers, Micheal Lowe and Daryl and family, Stacey, Koya and Matthew; and sister, Kathy Fortain and family, Dean and Robert Fortain.
Don's greatest love was family, friends, his dog, Chewy, and the Dallas Cowboys.
Don worked hard and was always the life of the party. His heart of gold was touched by many; whatever he had he shared.
A Celebration of Life and Potluck will be held on Sept.28, 2017, at The Buckaroo Club - Don's favorite hangout - from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Family and friends are encouraged to wear their Dallas Cowboy, or favorite football team, shirts or jersey.
