BRIGHAM CITY — Bud Edward Lowe will celebrate his 90th birthday at an open house held at the LDS church located at 650 Anderson Drive in Brigham City, Saturday, Jan. 18, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Bud was born Jan. 19, 1930, in Joseph, to parents, Maude Mills and Glen Dewey Lowe, the oldest of ten children. He married Sherry Jean Lee, Monroe, and they have been married for 67 years last December. In the first 20 years of marriage they moved 21 times.
Bud served in the National Guard 213th Armored Field Artillery Battalion and the U.S. Marine Corps.
He graduated from Utah State University with a master’s in mechanical design. He worked for the Ford Motor Company for about two years in Detroit, Michigan. He also taught school at East Carbon High from August 1968 through the spring of 1972. But most of his working years were spent at Thiokol Corp in Promontory, while living in Brigham City.
While living in East Carbon the family welcomed Blanche Wilson, an Indian placement student, whom regretfully, they have lost contact with.
Bud and Sherry have six children, 16 grandchildren and 43 great-grandchildren.
