CALDWELL, Idaho — Albert Charles Lowman was born Dec. 23, 1944, in Bridger, Mont., to Jesse and Emma Lowman. He was the sixth of nine children. While a teen in Bridger, he worked with Bill Currie on the Currie dairy farm, He also worked in Billings at the city water department. Albert served two tours of duty in Vietnam with the U.S. Navy Seabees. He worked in Corona, Calif., in the manufactured home business.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Jesse and Emma; grandparents, Detlef and Mina Thormahlen; siblings Bill Lowman, Dorothy and Jerry Vetter, Marlene Lowman, Pauline Lowman and his niece Cheryl Lowman.
He is survived by his children, Lex, Stacey and Jesse and his twin granddaughters, Bella and Halle; also, his siblings Archie Lowman of Caldwell, Bob of Park City, Pat (Brad) of Vista, Calif., Jeanette of Billings, Arnold of Boyd, Evelyn (Ray) of Billings; plus many nieces, nephews, cousins and good friend Beverly Clayton of Caldwell.
His siblings have such fond memories of visits to his Idaho home with his then wife Karen and their children. Especially the great banana cream pies that Albert created (he missed his true calling). Albert was a taxi cab driver in Caldwell when he suffered a brain aneurism. The wonderful surgeon operated so skillfully and saved his life but he was left unable to care for himself. His family loves the wonderful memories we have with Albert and his children.
Special thanks for the special care given Albert these many months while he suffered with a fatal case of stomach cancer, to the hospice staff of the Caldwell Care Center.
Albert’s graveside service with military honors will be held Friday, May 31, at the Bridger Cemetery at 2 p.m., with a viewing one hour prior to the service. Services are under care of Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Caldwell. Condolences may be given to the family at www.flahifffuneralchapel.com.
