Born on September 27, 1926, in Casey County, Kentucky, he was a son of the late Calvin and Mayme Vanoy Allen. He was a United States veteran serving in both the Army and Navy. Lowell was a Licensed Funeral Director in the State of Kentucky. He began working at McKinney-Brown Funeral Home in 1987 and obtained his Funeral Directors license in 1991. He formerly owned the Montgomery Ward store in Liberty. He also worked for NuTone in Ohio. Lowell was a member of Newtonsville Baptist Church. He enjoyed reading, square dancing with the Casey Swingers, camping, and traveling with his wife. Lowell can best be described as a genuinely kind person.
