Ken was born February 9, 1939 at Keota, OK, the son of Norman and Pocahontas "Pokey"(Cooper) Lowe and died Sunday, November 6, 2016 in Tulsa, OK.
Ken graduated from Stigler High School in 1958. He then married his high school sweetheart, Orela, and they made a home in Keefeton. Ken was a member of the Keefeton Free Will Baptist Church where he served as deacon for many years. Ken worked at the Muskogee Phoenix "paper office" before deciding to become a plumber. After the death of his first wife, he married Myrna Foreman. With their kids (his and hers) grown, Ken and Myrna enjoyed their time with each other and being very involved with all the grandkids. Whether it is PaPa Buddy or Papa Ken, it's always PaPa!
