On December 4, 2019 Lowell Kent Gardner returned to be with our Father in Heaven. He left us very unexpectedly and much too soon. Lowell and his family resided in Mesa, Arizona at the time of his passing. Lowell was an example of kindness and service to all those around him. He genuinely loved with his whole heart. He lived life to the fullest with his family at the forefront of all he did and was a devoted husband and father. Whether with his family and friends, in his job as a Usability Engineer, or serving at church, Lowell was a calming, reassuring presence to all those around him. He will be missed more than words can adequately express.
Lowell was born in Payson, Utah to Richard Allan Gardner and Zilpha Diana Nielsen. He lived in many places, but Thatcher, Arizona was home to him. He graduated from Thatcher High School in 1996. Lowell met his wife, Becky at Eastern Arizona College in 2000 soon after returning from a 2-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They were married May 18, 2001 in the Mesa, Arizona Temple and enjoyed more than 18 years of marriage together before his untimely death.
Lowell is survived by his wife Rebecca “Becky”; his two children, Joshua Logan (17) and Tylee Mabel (12); his parents, Allan and Zilpha; and his siblings, Doug (Maria), Jeff (Lizeth), Randall (Jennifer), Tiffany (Wes Gilmore), Gary (Heidi), and Corrianne (Nathan Coons) and their families.
You will be in our hearts forever… Until we meet again.
