Frederick Lowe, age 88 of Hudson, WI, passed away on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at Christian Community Home in Hudson with family by his side.

Fred was born on October 13, 1931 to parents Arthur and Margaret (Chorlog) Lowe in Madison, WI. He graduated from Madison West High School and continued his education at University Wisconsin Madison. He took a break from college to serve in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War before finishing his engineering degree at UW-Madison. Fred was a self-employed mechanical engineer and sold boiler feed water equipment for most of his career. He married Anne Gulbrandsen on December 26, 1955 and together they were blessed with five children. Fred had a strong faith and his church was a big part of his life.  He enjoyed planting trees and bird watching in his free time and was also a talented charcoal and ink artist. Fred was also a traveler and visited many places including several trips to Norway.

He will remain in the hearts of his wife Anne; children Kristine Lowe, Barbara (James) Sabatino, Ruth (Brian) Walsh, Peter (Orvie) Lowe, and Mark (Kelly) Lowe; grandchildren Vince, Joe, Donny, Monica, Maxwell, Jordan, and Kimberly. He is preceded in death by his parents, sister Katharine Arling and brother John Lowe as well as his son-in-law Gary Richter.

A memorial service for Fred will be on Friday, February 14, 2020 at 11am at Shepherd of the Valley Church in Afton, MN. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church. Memorials are preferred to Christian Community Home or Shepherd of the Valley Church.

Frederick's Tribute Wall

Tributes (2):

    • I enjoyed being Fred’s hairdresser for some yrs and seeing him and Ann out and about. Smart man and interesting, RIP.

    • My Dad was a pioneer in Pollution Control back in the 70s before it became a “being green” thing. He was an engineer and worked on electronic precipitators which clean factory exhaust waste. He took us camping and if there was any garbage on the ground when we arrived he would make us pick it up. He would say You are the only solution to pollution! His favorite greeting at church to people was Peace. We love and are proud of my Dad and I’m proud to be his daughter.
