Daniel James Lowery Sr., born on February 19, 1941, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, September 6, 2020 at the age of 79. His final days were spent surrounded by his family, sharing memories of his very memorable life. He was the beloved husband of 55 years to Carol Firmin Lowery. Loving father of Daniel J. Lowery Jr. Son of the late Charles Lowery Sr. and May Fisher Lowery. Brother of Millie Decker and the late Elizabeth Battle, Manuel Lowery, Rita Hatch, Beverly Guidry, Charles Lowery Jr. and Fred Lowery. He is also survived and fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins, dear friends and especially his Dachshund “Rusty” that brought him such comfort in his final days. Daniel was born in New Orleans, LA and was a longtime resident of St. Bernard Parish where he enjoyed a 39- year career with the U.S. Postal Service. Following hurricane Katrina Daniel and his family settled in Hammond, LA. Although Daniel suffered long and dearly from Parkinson’s disease, he possessed strength, perseverance, and an ability to overcome incredible odds and physical challenges. His courage has led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. Daniel will always be remembered for his loyalty and dedication to his family, his loving spirit, and his laughter. He was a wonderful example of what it means to care for others and will be deeply missed by us all. Relatives and friends were invited to attend a visitation held at St. Bernard Memorial Funeral Home, 701 W.
