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:
