Phillip Lee Lowman
Phillip Lee Lowman, age 80, died on Feb. 28, 2019, in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.
Phil is survived by his wife of 58 years, Lynda; his daughters, Cathy (John) Muckler of Sandpoint, Idaho and Liz (Dex) Vogel of Clark Fork, Idaho; his grandchildren, Ryan McNally and Tess Vogel; his brother Lynn Lowman of Kalama, Wash. and his sister Alice Young of Black River Falls, Wis. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Les and Elaine Lowman of Augusta, Wis. and his sister Jean Lowman of Augusta, Wis.
Phil was born on Nov. 30, 1938 in Augusta, Wis. He went to high school in Augusta, where he lettered in football and baseball and worked on the family dairy farm. He attended the University of Idaho where he majored in the Forestry program, after which he moved to Bonners Ferry, Idaho, when he took a job with the United States Forest Service. He met his future wife, Lynda in Bonners Ferry and they were married on Sept. 17, 1960.
Phil worked for the Forest Service for 38 years where he was active in fire control as a Fire Control Officer, and in timber management. Phil was very proud of “his loggers” and after his retirement he went to work at Crown Pacific and continued his career as a Timber Sale Administrator.
Phil was very devoted to his family and we never doubted that we could count on him for anything.
At Phil’s request, no formal service will be held. His wish was to be cremated and he shared with his family where he would like us to remember him.
