Robert “Bob” Claude Lowery, 81, husband, father, Papaw, friend, and most of all, follower of Jesus, joined the Heavenly angels at 1:00 am Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018. He was born on May 8, 1937 in Kokomo, Indiana. He was the son of Robert and Catherine Lowery. Bob married Ann Bougher on August 24, 1957. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Ann Mari Lowery and his son, Scott Lowery. 

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.” -Tom Bodett. Bob had the hope of Christ and worshipped God with his many talents. He was a gifted artist and musician. He enjoyed learning new things and would often take up new hobbies. Bob loved his family without ceasing and modeled exemplary love to Ann on a daily basis. Bob and Ann spent almost 54 years of marriage, completely inseparable. Their love, care, and devotion to each other was a testament to those around them. It’s all because two people fell in love that he left behind so many that loved him.

Bob is survived by three children, Lori Wisher, Marci Lowery Davis (Greg), and Staci Lowery, all of Kokomo; grandchildren, Lyndsi Smith, Autumn Farr, Sommer Wisher, Cierra Wisher-Williams, Rachel Robinette, Isabella Lowery, and Zander Lowery; great-grandchildren, Hannah Millard, Kalli Smith, Rylee Smith, Kaydence Williams, Lennon Robinette, Hudson Williams, and Finch Burgess. 

Funeral services will be held at 6:00 pm Thursday, October 4, 2018, at First Church of the Nazarene, 2734 S. Washington Street, with Pastor Kraig Hannah officiating.  Friends are invited to call on the family from 4-6 pm Thursday at the church.  Memorial contributions may be made in Bob’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association or to the American Cancer Society.  Messages of condolence may be left online at

Knowing there are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death, I extend my condolence to the family. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Lowery, reflect on the time when aging..., sickness..., death... and mourning will be no more! (Revelations 21:3,4) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29)
May God’s word bring you comfort during this difficult time and in the days ahead as we await the fulfillment of his promises.......
