GREENVILLE — Lowell Studebaker, 97, left his earthly home and entered his Heavenly one August 13, 2020, at Miami Valley Hospital, with family by his side. Lowell’s family often joked he was “one tough ole bird” for all that he had went through.
Lowell was born in Richmond , Indiana, July 9, 1923. He moved outside New Madison, Ohio, at the age of 12. Lowell “fudged” his age and joined the Navy at the age of 17.
He served his country in World War II, and was proud of his military service. Lowell kept a picture of his ship on his wall. Under it, he also kept a framed picture of a “thank you to our veterans” that his granddaughter, Rachel, had written in the fifth grade.
Lowell was a unique individual. You never had to wonder what was on his mind. He would let you know (and usually rather loudly!) He was always known for his generosity to his friends.
Lowell worked for Landmark of Greenville, drove truck for the former United States Chemical Company, and retired from Union City Mold.
Lowell loved to coach baseball for his sons. There is a brick commerating those years at the Sater Street Diamonds.
Lowells children are, Toni(Brad) Henninger ofGreenville, Tom(Loretta) Studebaker of Michigan, and Joe, (fiance’Sherry) , of Lebanon, Ohio
The Family would like to thank Kristina Aldora , of Passport Services, Comprehensive Health Services, and Medicine and More. You all helped keep Dad at home and provided his needs.
The Family would also like to thank Dad’s special friend, Kris Culver. You and Dad spent many hours of friendship, companionship, sharing meals, and time together. It was always a comfort to Dad to know that he only had to travel a few doors down to find someone so special.
As Lowell chose to donate his body to Wright State for anatomical research, a memorial service will be held Saturday, September 19,2020 at noon. It will take place at Radiant Lighthouse Church, Sebring Warner Road, Greenville, Ohio. A meal is planned after. Any and all that would like to remember Lowell and share memories are welcome to attend.
