Married to Patricia Gutridge with 3 children and 6 grandchildren. Graduated from Fayetteville Tech with an associates degree in accounting.

Even though Lowell had attended church most of his life, he did not come to a true saving faith until 1998 shortly after being introduced to the reformed faith. He realized then that Christ had been his Savior but never his Lord. His true desire is to serve God by serving his church and his people.
