Lowell Alan Lumpkin
Born: November 6, 1949
Died: August 22, 2021
Lowell Alan Lumpkin, born November 6th 1949, age 71, entered his eternal rest on August 22nd 2021, and is with his Savior Jesus Christ, walking the streets of gold. A loving and devoted husband, father, grandpa, son, brother, cousin, uncle, brother-in-law, neighbor, friend, and believer. He was the most Christ-like man his family knew, always putting others before himself. He loved his family richly and unconditionally.
Lowell's greatest passion in life was for all things that grew from the earth. Farming and gardening was a gift and love that God gave him. His heaven on earth was on his mother and father's farm in Modoc, Indiana. It was there that Lowell used his gifts and talents to continue on his parent's legacy of planting and farming, ensuring their farm was ever better for future generations. This spring Lowell hand-planted over 500 trees on his parent's farm to build a new woods for future generations to enjoy. In 2019, Lowell planted over 10,000 flowers at Crossview Church, his home, his friends' homes, and his parent's home. He was proud to say that year was a record year. Lowell graduated in 1968 from Union School, Modoc, Indiana. From there he went on to become a Purdue University graduate, receiving his Master's in Agricultural Economics with an interest in Seed Genetics, and graduated top of his class.
Lowell was married to the Love of his life Cindy Lumpkin (Brooks) for 39 years. They were blessed to adopt their two surviving children, David and Daniel Lumpkin, together. Lowell loved to travel with his family, never missed a holiday, and would always be the first to go on a long walk with you. Lowell was also blessed to enjoy five and half years with his granddaughter and best friend, Michaela. Lowell got to share and teach his passion of gardening, long walks, and days spent at the park with her. His love for his wife and children were felt by all.
He was a hard worker, a patient man of character and integrity, and was filled with love for God and others. Lowell's passion for helping others ran very deep. He gave blood at his local blood bank 129 times since 2014, donating nearly 16 and a half gallons of blood to help save the lives of others. In his final years before retiring, he worked and drove for the Voluntary Action Center (Trans-Vac), driving the local elderly and those in need to their doctor appointments. Lowell was so proud of his bus and the families and individuals he was able to help. The impact he made on his family and others is a legacy that will never be forgotten.
In late July, Lowell and Cindy had traveled to be with her sister who is battling cancer. The whole family was exposed to the Coronavirus. Lowell and his brother-in-law, Rich Mastin, lost their battle to this virus. The greatest decision Lowell made in his life was to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and know God's deep love, forgiveness and that heaven would be his eternal home. None of us know what tomorrow holds or when our last breath on earth is drawn. The Bible says, one day we will give an account of our lives before a Holy God. We will either stand on Christ's righteousness or our own deeds, which do not measure up. May you have peace with God.
We love you forever Lowell, and all we can ask is for God to fill the void that we have in our hearts for our loss of you.
Our beloved Lowell is preceded in death by his father, Ray Lumpkin, and is remembered and loved by:
His wife Cindy Brooks Lumpkin (Sycamore, Illinois), his mother LaVora Lumpkin (Modoc, Indiana), his sons David Lumpkin (Indianapolis, Indiana), and Daniel (Hannah) Lumpkin and granddaughter, Michaela Lumpkin (Sycamore, Illinois). His brothers Darrell (Sandi) Lumpkin (Modoc, Indiana), Ernest Lumpkin (Modoc, Indiana), sister-in-law Dee Lumpkin (Muncie, Indiana), Everett (Cindy) Lumpkin (Galveston, Indiana), sister-in-laws, Cheryl Mastin (North Port, Florida) and Rose Brooks (Port Charlotte, Florida), and so many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A memorial service for Lowell Lumpkin is planned to be held in the near future.

Dearest Cindy, You are in my thoughts and memories, and if I could send a loving hug across the oceans to you, I would. I hope that your own recovery is happening and that the love of family and friends can help you through your loss. I'm sorry that I only met Lowell once when Kathy and I were lucky enough to stay with you many years ago, he sounds like a man that left a true legacy to the world, and he will be truly missed. Lots of love my Mentor and friend, Debxxx

Lowell was a sterling example of what it means to be an ambassador of Christ.

I had the good fortune to work with Lowell for 6+ years at Trans-Vac. He was one of the drivers that helped train me. He was a great and caring man that always had time to answer your questions and help out in any way he could. There were times that I would drive his route while he was on vacation and without fail one of the first questions I would get asked by his regular riders was "When is Lowell coming back." He left a lasting impression on me and will be greatly missed.

There are so many things to remember Lowell for; his smile, his sense of humor, his simplicity, his awesomeness, his love and care for others, his love for God, his calmness, his service to humanity, his wisdom, his humility, his handsomeness, and the list goes on. I always admired the unbreakable bond between Lowell and Cindy. The way he completed her sentences and vice versa. I did not hesitate to call them my American parents. Cindy, I know you miss Lowell so much more because you spent a lifetime with him but we are comforted that he is wrapped in God's love and glory sitting in eternal rest till we meet at Jesus' feet. I love you Lowell. I love you now and always.

I met Cindy and Lowell in the year 2019 when I newly came to the US for my graduate program. They have since played the role of American mom and Dad in my life. I can't continue to mention how God have used them to be a blessing to my life in every single way. I am deeply sorry for this great loss Cindy. Lowell was indeed a Christ like man, loving, kind hearted, calm, and easy going. I so much emulate his humility and his love for the things of God and his family. I have gotten plenty memories of Lowell's kind acts within my short period of knowing him, and they would forever remain in my heart. My prayers goes to Cindy and the entire Lumpkin family, that God will comfort you all and give you the fortitude to bear the loss. Your eternal rest Lowell. You will be greatly missed!

Truly I am so very sorry for the loss of your beloved Lowell. In God´s Word it says to give respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed ~Romans 13:7. Lowell was a man of Honor in how he provided and cared for his Family and others he barely knew. I was one such individual, as when I was without a vehicle during a tumultuous season in my life, Cindy and Lowell generously offered me the use of their van. I want to pay tribute to Lowell in the way he LIVED rather than the circumstance surrounding his untimely passing! My prayers go out to Lowell´s Family for peace and comfort that only God can provide. He will be greatly missed!! ~Marilyn Di Venti
