Jimmy Eugene Lowe, 78, of Gosnell went to be with the Lord on Monday, Aug. 5, at St. Bernards Hospital in Jonesboro. He was born in Reedsburg, Wis., to Elsworth Leroy Lowe and Evelyn Solchenberger Lowe on Aug. 11, 1940. He was a high school graduate and completed two years of college.

He was a career serviceman having served 23 years in the United States Air Force. After retiring from the military Jimmy became a locksmith. He owned his own company called Lowe Lock and Key.
