Mr. Lowery was a native of Shelby, North Carolina having made New Ellenton his home for the past 65 years. He graduated from Number 3 High School in Shelby, North Carolina in l944 and attended the last Class Reunion in 2014. He was a US Army Veteran having served in the Korean War and always counted it a blessing that he was chosen to serve in "cook" school. It always served him well in life that he had learned to cook and could make a "meal in a pot" with no trouble. Mr. Lowery moved to New Ellenton in the early l950's to take a job at the Savannah River Site where he retired with 40 years of service in l993. He always looked forward to the 25 year dinners for the Site Employees. Mr. Lowery was a member of Foreman Memorial Baptist Church and the Berea Pals Sunday School Class.
