Laconia-----R. Earl Lowell, 81, passed away at the St. Francis  Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on June 26th after an extended illness.

Earl was born October 7, 1926 in Franklin, NH but spent most of his life living in Laconia.  Earl was a World War II veteran with the United States Navy and was very proud of his service during World War II.  He was a Life member of the American Legion and the Loyal and Protective Order of Elks.

Earl worked for the Laconia Malleable Iron Company for over 30 years as a molding supervisor after which he worked for the Laconia School District until he retired.  As a young man, Earl worked at the Belknap Recreation Area, now Gunstock Recreation Area, and was involved in cutting the first trails of Tiger, Phelps and Smith and loved to reminisce about the old single chair lift and riding shovels down Try-me Trail.  Earl loved fishing, gardening and woodworking in his spare time and was an accomplished storyteller about life in Laconia during his life here.  Earl loved spending time with family and friends playing cards or watching Red Sox or Patriots games.

Earl is survived by his wife of sixty-one years, Irene (Poire) Lowell, of Laconia; two sons, James “Jim” Lowell and his wife, Karen, of Gilford and Alan Lowell and his wife, Brenda, of  Quakertown, Penn.; four grandchildren, Kara (Lowell) Chase, Kristin Lowell, Seth Lowell and Christopher Lowell and his great grandchild, Kendall Chase.
