July 11, 1939 ‒ July 19, 2019

Marion, Ohio

Gerald Lowry, age 80 of Marion, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 19, 2019 at the Presidential Care Center of Marion.

Gerald was born on July 11, 1939 in Marion, the son of Leroy and Louise (Prudy) Lowry.

Gerald was a devoted employee of the Marion City Schools where he served in custodial care for many years. He impacted the lives of countless students and faculty in his years of service to the district. When Gerald wasn’t at the school, you could most certainly find him at the bowling alley. To say he was an avid bowler is to put it mildly, he thoroughly enjoyed every minute spent bowling. He also had an appreciation and love of cars.

He is survived by his children: Jeff (Monique) Lowry of Marion and Lori (Johnny) Osborne of Ansted, WV; grandchildren: Brandi Osborne, JW (Abbi) Osborne, Drew, Bryce and Owen Lowry; 7 great grandchildren; and siblings: Sandra Lynch and Judy Feil.

Gerald is preceded in death by his beloved wife Judith Ann (Thomas) Lowry and siblings: Harold, Connie Sue and Buddy Rae Lowry

Gerald’s celebration of life service will be held Monday, July 29, 2019 at Cooper’s Bowl, 191 Barks Rd W, Marion from 6 PM to 8 PM.

The Snyder Funeral Homes of Marion are honored to be serving the Lowry family.
