Lowell C. Grose of New Boston, passed away on February 13th at the age of 99 ½. He was preceded in death by his parents Leonard and Anna Grose and his beloved Lois.
Lowell spent most of his work life in the sales department at Detroit Steel, retiring in 1975. Subsequently, he worked as office manager for Belleville Coal and Ohio Asphalt. Once Lois retired in 1982, their life became very busy indeed - golfing, playing cards with many friends and family, Shawnee State basketball and of course any Golden Bear activities that came along.
Lowell served his country in WWII in the 811th Army Ordnance Unit and was posted to England and France from 1942 to 1946. In his younger years he was an active member of Valley United Methodist Church and a Mason for over 70 years.
The Groses traveled extensively over the years, but the one constant in Lowell’s life was his love of his southern Ohio home. His life can truly be summed up as a life well lived and a life well loved.
