Michael Ray Lowe, age 68, of Weatherford, Texas departed this world for heaven on July 22, 2019. After a courageous battle with cancer, he passed peacefully in his home with his beloved wife and two daughters by his side.
Mike was born March 24, 1951 in Fort Worth, Texas. He attended Richland High School. He served in the United States Army from 1968 to 1971.
In 1971, he met and married his true love, Michele. They moved to Weatherford in 1976 and built a little house on a hill in the country where they would spend the next forty-three years living, loving, laughing and raising their family.
A master plumber by trade, Mike successfully owned and operated his own business for many years. He was a self-taught computer whiz and eventually turned his hobby into a job in IT. Due to his failing health, he retired from the job he loved at Joe R. Jones Construction in March 2019.
Mike is preceded in death by his father, Charles Ray Lowe.
Survivors include his devoted wife of 47 years, Michele Lowe; daughter and son-in-law, Tiffany and Brian Bagwell; daughter and son-in-law, Melissa and Chris Flood; grandchildren Alyssa Bagwell, Luke Bagwell, Loren Flood and Easton Flood; mother Patsy Scribner Lowe; sister and brother-in-law Cheryl and Connie Duer; brother and sister-in-law Chuck and Judy Lowe; sister and brother-in-law Darla and Bobby Savage; many nieces and nephews and his church family at Friendship Baptist Church in Weatherford where he was a long time member.
