Lowell moved his family to Fremont, CA, where they lived for 11 years, and he worked for Likit Windows, traveling over 885,000 miles delivering windows. He, then, moved back to Colusa County and worked for the County Road Department until he retired in 1992. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and was an amazing husband and father.
