IRONTON — Larry R. Lowe, devoted husband, loving father and esteemed educator, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014.  

Mr. Lowe was an accomplished and respected teacher. He taught at Ironton High School, Paul G. Blazer High School in Ashland, Ky., and Marshall University. During his career of more than 40 years, he taught physics, chemistry, biology and astronomy. He always strove to inspire his students to achieve excellence in all facets of their education, and many considered him to be a guiding force in choosing the paths of their own careers.

Larry was an avid outdoorsman and true artist. He enjoyed archaeology, stargazing, landscaping, painting, creating original artwork and just communing with nature. He was also a committed family patriarch, spending much time and taking great care of his wife, children, neighbors and pets.

He is survived by his wife, Kathy; a daughter, Sally; and his sons, Robert and Jonathan. Also surviving are his brother, Terry, and his wife, Mary, and their daughter, Sophia.

The loss of Larry will be profoundly felt by all who knew him.

A memorial service will be at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, 2014, at Tracy Brammer-Monroe Funeral Home in Ironton.

Visitation will be after 5:30 p.m. Monday at the funeral home.
