Reginald T. Lowe
3/9/1948 - 10/26/2019

Reg, 71, of Jamaica, Vermont, passed away peacefully at home after a lengthy illness. Reg, the 6th child of Herman and Lila (Brooks) Lowe, was born in Wardsboro at the Forester home March 9, 1948. He attended Jamaica Village School.  Reg served in the Army, Company C, 82nd Airborne, from December of 1967, to July of 1969, when he was honorably discharged after serving in Vietnam as a Sargent. In his time in the service, he acquired The Expert Rifle Marksmanship Award, The Bronze Star Medal, and The Army Commendation Medal.  Reg returned and married Sheila Bartlett in 1971. Upon his return from Vietnam, Reg returned to work at Stratton Corporation where he worked as a lift operator, snow maker, and a lift mechanic for 34 years.   As well as working at Stratton, he was also a logger and a caretaker. He was a lifelong resident of Jamaica, where he enjoyed hunting, the Red Sox, farming, his grandchildren and sugaring. He enjoyed spending time at Camp Lowe with his family, playing cards, checkers, and occasionally seeing deer.  

Reg is survived by his wife of 47 years, Sheila (Bartlett) Lowe, sisters Phyllis and Wink Roberts, Barbara Lowe and Robert Arms, daughter Pam and Roy Coburn, son Chris and Julie Lowe, son Ben Lowe and Sara Bernard, and daughter Josie and Ronnie Betit, grand-children Jake Topping, Abby and Kristen Lowe, Evan and Aden Bernard, and Easton Betit.  Reg was predeceased by his parents, and brothers Herman Jr., Paul, David, and Wally Lowe.

Per Reg’s wishes, there might be a service… “unless something comes up” … and something always comes up.

Translation: There will be no service.
