  • My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, during this difficult time and always. I am available, whenever you may need me.

  • We first met Lowell, the gentle giant, at the Mobile Station in the 80s, owned by Bob Shaw, in Utica. Lowell was the person who gave us the nicknames, Salty Dogs. After that first meeting at the Mobile station, we became great friends. Our adventures included hanging out at the Mobile Station while he worked on cars, movies and many hamburgers at their house. He would call his wife, Becky, and say “Get the hamburgers ready, the salty dogs are coming up.” Lowell would have given us the shirt off his back, had a huge heart and always had a smile ready for us when we came to the Mobile Station. They’ll never be another man like him.

    We’re sorry for your loss and we’re sending you our prayers during this difficult time.
