Darrell Franklin Lowman of Hickory, NC went to be with his LORD on Friday, May 24, 2013 surrounded by his loving family.
Darrell graduated from Drexel High School. Following his graduation he proudly served our country in the United States Air Force. He furthered his education earning an AA in Mathematics from Western Piedmont Community College, BS degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science from Appalachian State University and a MSIA from Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. He achieved President's List and Dean's List, graduated Summa Cum Laude, and was a member of Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. Darrell began his professional career working for Drexel Heritage in the MIS Department. He retired in 2008 after 25 years of service at General Electric Company.
He was a lifelong member of First Church of God, attending Drexel First Church of God during his younger years. He was a charter member of the current Morganton First Church of God and served as Chairman of the Building Fund. Darrell was active in his pursuit of the LORD, continually sacrificing self to serve others. He enjoyed being outdoors, spending time in the mountains, but most of all he loved and cherished time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
Darrell was born November 12, 1943, the son of George Arvin and Grace Keller Lowman. In addition to his parents, a brother, Jerry Dean Lowman, preceded him in death.
He leaves a devoted and loving wife of 45 years, Hope Ernst Lowman.
A daughter, Wendy Lowman Ward and her husband, Christian of Hickory and their son, Ethan Brock Garrett; and a son, Darren Jeremy Lowman, his wife Tina of Concord, and their daughters, Ashley Grace and Hannah Elizabeth, survive him.
Brothers surviving are Archie F. Lowman and his wife Judy of Drexel; Kenneth W. Lowman and his wife Lisa of Hildebran. Surviving sisters are Carolyn Davis of Cary; Brenda Costner and her husband, Bobby of Drexel; and Peggy Carswell Lowman, wife of Jerry.
In his extended family he leaves Judy Ernst Hopp and her husband Jim of Apex; Jack Clarke Ernst and his wife Susan of Fayetteville; Kirby Christopher Ernst and his wife Jan of Hickory; and Eda Ernst McGalliard of Drexel.
Many beloved nephews and nieces survive. He is preceded in death by one nephew, Devin Ernst Powell.
A Celebration of Darrell's Life will be held at Morganton First Church of God, 675 Summers Road, Morganton NC, at 11 am on Tuesday, May 28, 2013. The family will receive friends in the church sanctuary beginning at 10am.
Entombment at Burke Memorial Park will follow the Celebration.
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Grace Lowman Memorial Fund at Morganton First Church of God in honor of his love for his mother.
Darrell was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend who gave un-selfishly to family, community, and friends. He will be missed.
