Obituary for Charles P. Lowe III
Charles P. Lowe III, age 73, of Ridgeland, MS, passed away on May 4, 2018 in his home with his wife, Ruby, by his side. He had been engaged in a courageous fight with brain cancer for several months. He was reunited in Heaven with his Father, Charles P. Lowe Jr, his Mother, Dorothy Boylan Lowe, and his Sister, Shirley Lowe Stanford. He is survived by Ruby and their two sons, Michael Lowe (Sarah) of Houston, TX, and Brian Lowe (Tricia) of New Orleans, LA, and five granddaughters – Lindsey, Ava, Lauren, Eleanore, and Lucy. Charlie was born in New Orleans, LA on December 24, 1944. At an early age his family moved to Jackson, MS. Charlie (“CP”) as he was sometimes called since he was a “third” attended school at Boyd, Bailey, and Murrah High School. Charlie attended Mississippi State University where he graduated with a BS Degree in Marketing and an MBA. Charlie and Ruby Avara were married on June 24, 1972. Charlie was employed by the Jackson Public Schools for three decades in the business office retiring as Purchasing Director in 2000. Charlie loved to spend time watching movies and TV shows with Ruby and creating websites for his granddaughters, family, and friends. Playing the keyboard and guitar were also lifelong hobbies. He loved his wife of 45 years, sons, and grandgals more than life. Charlie always had a sense of humor right up until the end of his life making the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), Mississippi Methodist Rehabilitation Center, Kindred Healthcare/Hospice, and Home Instead staff smile and laugh. The Lowe family would like to give a special THANK YOU to Rev. Albeenreddy Vatti and Rev. Jason Johnston with St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Madison, MS, Teddy Avara (Ruby’s brother), Stacey Cooper (Ruby’s sister), and the entire staff with Home Instead and Kindred Healthcare/Hospice especially Ida Thomas and Tammy Uthoff for their dedication, support, and friendship they brought these past few weeks. A memorial mass and celebration of life is planned for family and close friends. In lieu of flowers, Charlie has asked that a donation be given to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, in Memphis, TN or the American Cancer Society.
