Lowell Henry Pearson, 83, passed away on Valentine's Day, February 14, 1998, in Bountiful, Utah, of causes incidental to Alzheimer's disease.

He was born December 21, 1914, to Joseph Hilmer and Martha Sharp Pearson in Union, Utah. Married Charlotte Marie Robinson, June 12, 1947, in Pleasant Green, Utah. Later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.After serving his country during World War II, Lowell worked 25 years at Bamburger Railroad and 20 years at Sugar House Park Authority and the U.S. Postal Service.

Lowell was a quiet spoken man whose priority in life was not to be wealthy or prominent, but to be a good husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He loved flying kites, playing ball and especially ice fishing on the Weber River with his longtime friend, George Stringfellow.

While the Alzheimer's disease has taken away the Lowell that we used to know, our memories will be forever of the man that he is.

The family wishes to express their thanks to all family, friends and neighbors whose concern for Lowell kept us going. A special thank you to Nancy and Camille at the Garden Terrace Day Care and the staff at the Rocky Mtn. Care Center for their tender care with Lowell.
