Donald Reed
Nov. 6, 1939 - Jan. 6, 2021

Donald Reed Lowmaster passed peacefully on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the age of 81. Don was born to Fred W. Lowmaster and Wanda Grace Lowmaster (Hogan) on November 6, 1939, in Upper Sandusky, OH. He married Reiko Saito on July 8, 1968. They had one daughter, Anneliese. Don is preceded in death by his wife, parents, and brother Roger Lowmaster. He is survived by his daughter, Anna and son-in-law Alex Tsakiris, siblings, Melvin Lowmaster, Lucy Schings, and Linda Jones, as well as many nieces and nephews. Don proudly served our country in the United States Air Force from 1962 until he retired from the military in 1982. He continued a career in government service with the United States Postal Service from 1983 until retirement in 2004. He received many commendations, awards, endorsements, and recommendations throughout both of his careers, too numerous to list. The adage, life is not the same without you, strikes hard in the face of grief. While this is true for all those touched by Don, their lives aren't going to be the same, but better for the legacy he leaves with them. While no funeral service is currently scheduled, a Celebration of Life Ceremony may be announced at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations to be sent to the Cure Alzheimer's Fund ( or a charity of your choice in honor of Don's memory.
