Don Cleveland Lowery

Don Cleveland Lowery, 90, of Mount Vernon, Illinois, passed away at 3:22 pm May 7, 2022 at his residence.

He was born January 15, 1932 in Mount Vernon, Illinois to the late Hubert and Clara Lowery. Don is survived by his son, Lon Lowery of Florida; daughter, Kim Stoner of Texas; step-son, Robert Fagan and wife, Magaly Fagan of Virginia; grandchildren, Megan Stoner, Miles Stoner, and Aaron Lowery of Texas, Sofia and Darío Fagan of Virginia, and Nicole Wilson of Oklahoma; his sisters, Carol Ann Greenwalt and Sandra Sloan of Mount Vernon; his brother, Randy, and wife, Linda Lowery of Mount Vernon; his close friend   nephew, Ryan Sloan; and numerous nieces nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Ruthann Fagan, his parents, and by his sister, Merlene Houston.

Don was a retired boilermaker of Local 363 and skilled welder. He collected pristine vehicles and may have been seen over the years driving any one of his coveted classics – yellow 1966 Jaguar XKE roadster, a 1995 Mercedes SL500, Plymouth Prowler, 1932 Roadster, and several Harley Davidson’s. Although he was an avid outdoorsman   enjoyed hunting, fishing, and boating, he was also a fashion icon within his circle of family and friends. He loved pearl snap shirts, stylish caps, and was never without his bold, gold American Eagle pendant. Don enjoyed John Wayne westerns, fresh cracked walnuts, and several brain teasers and puzzles. Charismatic and handsome, his family will miss his ornery sense of humor most.
