Lowell Braden, 86, of Owensboro, passed away June 8, 2021, with cancer. He was born January 9, 1935, in Owensboro, to the late Walter and Marguerite Braden. After graduating high school, Lowell furthered his education at Western Kentucky University and earned his degree in math, with a minor in physics and chemistry. He went on to serve in the Army reserves for twenty years, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. Lowell worked at G.E. and MPD for 40 years before retiring in 2000. After his retirement, he enjoyed boating and camping with his family. He had a strong love for Jesus Christ and attended church with his wife at Crosspointe Baptist. He was compassionate, generous, and would have given anyone the shirt off of his back.
Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Michael Braden; and his brothers, Ronald Braden and Basil Braden.
Lowell is survived by his wife of 67 years, Faye Braden; his daughter, Shawn Braden; his granddaughter, Heather (Derek) Hatley; his great-granddaughters, Bianca Hatley and Ava Hatley; his sister, Aretta West; his niece, Linda Sewell; his nephew, Chuck (Cherie) West; and several other great-nieces and nephews.
