Lowell Watkins "Lefty" MOTT

Obituary Condolences


News Death Notice

His career continued as he was asked to come back often to do consulting and development for the company, leading to a major development in 2004 that led to a patent. He was credited with the development of several mild steel all purpose wires and his products were used on the Sears Tower, The World Trade Center and by major U.S. manufacturers such as Ford and Chrysler and the U.S. Navy submarine fleet. He was inducted last fall as a Counselor into the American Welding Society held in Chicago, IL. His nominators described Lowell as having an ingenious approach to solving problems and as an incredible teacher and as a fun person to be around with a relentless pursuit for perfection. He was referred to as a classic Horatio Alger story of a man who through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty accomplished much for his company, his industry, and his country. Friends may call from 3-7 PM on Sunday, July 20, 2014 and funeral services will be at 10:30 AM on Monday, July 21, 2014 at Baird Funeral Home in Troy with Rev. Ed Beeson officiating. Burial will follow in Casstown Cemetery in Casstown. The Veteran's Honor Guard will provide services at the graveside. Memorial contributions may be made to the Miami East Athletic Boosters, 3825 N State Route 589, Casstown, OH 45312 OR Elizabeth Township Community Center, 5760 E Walnut Grove Road, Troy, OH 45373.
