James "Red" Lowe Obituary

The Family would like to invite everyone to join them for Jim's Celebration of Life Gathering on Saturday, June 8, 2024 at 6 PM at the Tin Dog Saloon located at 3245 S. Harvard Ave.,Tulsa, OK.


James Manson Lowe, known to many as “Red” and to most as “Jim” was born to parents Manson Eliott Lowe and Mary Jane Lowe (née Sherrick) on April 5, 1955, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the youngest of three. He had two older sisters, Kathy and Gail, whom he thought the world of. The siblings lived and spent most of their formative years in Jenks, Oklahoma.


Jim was quite the ornery one growing up. Enough so that he was threatened on a regular basis by his sisters with a hairbrush or fry pan over the head. He was always full of it, and it was one of the traits he managed to pass on to Taylor! One might call that karma! In school he played football and ran track, and he was quite good at it until after his sophomore year, when we think girls took over! He was also a friend on a slalom ski. He spent many summers behind a boat, water skiing and you could consider it a real feat if you could dump him!


Jim lived his entire life in the Tulsa area and as an adult worked either as a Survey Technician or as a Welder. He enjoyed most everything that involved being outdoors including camping, fishing, and volunteering many years for River Parks and Oktoberfest. One might say he did it for the free beer, but really, he just enjoyed being around people. The fun, the comradery, and the friendships developed over the many years meant a great deal to him. Bending his elbow, for free, was just a nice perk!


Jim met his High School Sweetheart, Lisa (née Baldwin), while attending Jenks High School. Jim and Lisa went their separate ways after high school, eventually marrying other people. By the late ‘80’s fate had brought them back to each other. They shared a daughter, Erin Hunter (b. 1982) and together had Christopher McKenzie (b. 1989) and Taylor Mariah (b. 1996). Jim was also a stepdad to Lisa’s sons Joel & Sean.


Jim is survived by his wife, Lisa, children; Erin, Christopher & Taylor and husband Jayro, stepsons; Joel & Sean, and niece, Heather and his extended family of cousins who he cherished deeply as well as many longtime friends.


Jim was preceded in death by his father; Manson, mother; Mary Jane, sisters; Kathy & Gail and nephew, Jimmy.
