David Lowe


“For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”  1 Corinthians 15:22 

(underlined in David’s bible)

“Courage is being scared to death…and saddling up anyway.”  John Wayne


Our God-Family-Country Loving cowboy David Lowe, age 78, was lovingly lifted into his Savior’s arms on March 26, 2020. David was born to Wesley Lowe and Luella Lowe.  He graduated from Mahaska High School and Kansas State University before embarking on his lifelong dream and career in the farming and cattle industry, retiring at age 76. He was preceded in death by his parents.  David is survived by his wife of 45 years, Aliece; son Jason (Katie) and grandson, Maxwell; son Clay (Stacey) granddaughter, Sydney and grandson, Aaron; daughter, Cristen and grandson, Carson; brother, Michael Lowe and sister, Elaine Hostetler. One of David’s favorite places to be close to God is in the Flint Hills of Kansas, especially during the summer months when cattle are grazing on lush green prairie grass.


A time of sharing love for David with family and friends will be planned on a Flint Hills cattle ranch this summer.

    A Cowboy’s Prayer……

    I’ve been a long time coming, Lord,
    But now, I’m riding in.
    I see those gates just shining,
    Where no pain is felt within.

    I heard the angels singing, Lord,
    When they came to escort me.
    They let me ride my favorite horse
    On in to eternity.

    I’m thankful for my days on earth,
    And my friends & family there below.
    They knew quite well my time had come,
    But they grieved to see me go.

    I ask that you give them comfort, Lord,
    For I’m in a better place.
    Please let them know that I rest in peace,
    Thanks to your matchless grace.

    Please let them know that I love them, Lord,
    And all fear has been put aside.
    I will wait for a grand reunion,
    When they, too, cross the Great Divide.

    Godspeed David…

    Growing up with Jason, David was always kind to me. He let me call him ‘Dad’. Many great nights were spent in their home watching TV and playing basketball in the driveway. He always had a funny story and a kind word. I will remember him fondly.

    He was one of the finest men that I have ever known. He was honest, strong, dependable and conservative, to name a few attributes. He was truly a man’s man and I will miss talking with him.
