Martin Wilson Lowe|
Martin Wilson Lowe "Marty" (58) passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 13, 2014 in the beautiful mountains of Wyoming. He was doing what he loved most; enjoying nature and the adventures it had to offer.
Marty was born to Reed & Anna Ruth Lowe on July 25, 1955 in Montpelier, Idaho. He was an optimistic, busy, fun-loving child who was adored by his sister Donna.
Marty met and fell in love with Annie Dennis while attending Utah State University. They were married on June 7, 1980 in the backyard of Marty's childhood home, Burton Ranch, in Grace, Idaho.
Marty was an incredibly intelligent and driven individual that started his own business, Battery Specialists, in 1979. Marty enjoyed owning his own business especially because it allowed him to work with his children every day.
When Marty wasn't busy at his store he could be found recreating in the great outdoors. He was an active, adventurous and fun-loving man who loved to wind surf, kite board, ski, snowboard, snow kite and snow mobile. His passion for these sports will be remembered by all who were fortunate enough to know him.
Marty will forever be remembered as a generous boss, gifted athlete, loving husband and adoring father & grandfather. He was so proud of his two children, Cassie & Terry, and loved spending time with his grandkids.
Marty is survived by his wife Annie; children Cassie (Ryan) and Terry (Megan); grandchildren Taylor, Aedan, Gabe, Crete & Rafe; his beloved sister Donna (Wayne) Skinner; and many other loving friends and family.
Marty was preceded in death by his father Reed, mother Anna Ruth, and step-mother Thola.
