Gene Lowe lives history

Posted February 26, 2015 at 11:26 am

Gene Lowe still making history

LONG TERM VFW MEMBER – Gene Lowe joined VFW Post 257 40 years ago. He is now the second longest term member, behind Jim Floyd. Lowe was Commander for three years.

At 91, Gene Lowe is a walking history book recalling events in Dederick, Harwood, El Dorado Springs, Japan and Germany. Father time has slowed his steps a little, but on a moment’s notice he can break into a soft shoe dance.

He spent nine of his years after WW II “running” the Park “by myself.” He will tell you, “Leo Lancaster laid all them stones in the Park.”

He can tell you, “El Dorado ain’t like it used to be then.”
