    Lowell has been part of our family for the past 18 years. Looking back at all pictures of him and our family enjoying good times and laughter warms my heart. Our daughter Cara was especially close with “Grampa Woa Woa” he even named one of his precious cats after her so he could have his Cara with him always. We have so many memories of pool-side gatherings, family gatherings in Rock, Gladstone or Wausau, WI. His laughter and teasing nature will be sorely missed. He was a great presence in our lives. He carefully followed our son Geoffrey as he served in the Mid-East during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and then his tour in Afghanistan. His caring ways and genuine niceness will be missed forever, he was a good man with a big heart. We are so honored to have had him in our lives for the time that we did.

    My deepest sympathies to the entire Feathers and extended families. I grew up with the Feathers family in Rapid River, graduating with her sister Mary. Rely on your wonderful memories at this seemingly impossible time in all of your lives. You have your own special angel walking with and shining upon all of you…..God Bless!

    Lowell, I will aways remember you for fixing my boat over 20 years and the undying kindness you showed towards cats may your soul rest in piece.
