Paul J. Lowers

Town leader organized fireworks display

- — A son of William C. and Elda R. Osborne Lowers, Mr. Lowers was born Aug. 16, 1933, in Wick, Pa.

He attended Slippery Rock High School.

Mr. Lowers had 42 years of service with Cooper Energy Services in Grove City. At the time of his retirement in 1996, he was maintenance supervisor. He was a consultant for Cooper Cameron until 2006. Paul was a partner in Harrisville Auto Sales.
