Richard E. Lowe, 62, Warsaw, entered the gates of heaven Monday evening March 5, 2018.
There was a distinct look of enlightenment in his eyes prior to taking his last breath. He was surrounded by an adoring mother, loving daughter and an army of siblings. He was loved by all for his humble spirit, zest for life, kind and gentle nature. He made time for everyone and greeted all with a warm welcoming smile. “Ricky” made the world a better place and will be sadly missed in the community.
He was born on March 29, 1955, in Fort Wayne to Phil O. Lowe and Mary Louise (Suelzer) Lowe.
He was a lifetime resident of Kosciusko County where he was a 1973 graduate of Warsaw High School. He was a residential and commercial painter and the owner of The Picky Painter in Warsaw. He was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Warsaw.
