Obituary: Lowell G. Howe (Sept. 17, 1931 – July 1, 2013)

 Lowell G. Howe, 81 of Patterson, Calif., passed away peacefully in his sleep on Monday, July 1, 2013.

Lowell was born in Crescent City. After graduation from Del Norte High School in Crescent City, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. Returning from his service as a Military Policeman at Lakenheath AFB, England, he worked in a sawmill for a short time. Working long hard hours on the green chain for little pay, he decided he could do better providing for his family by starting his own business. So he then left the security of corporate employment and began his ambition and dream of self-employment. Using an unusual business model, 100-percent customer satisfaction no matter whether he made a profit or not, a handshake was his contract and his word was his bond.
