Central City—Bob Lowery, 65, of Central City, formerly of Princeton, passed away March 6 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., following a three-year battle with cancer.
He was a retired Kentucky Baptist minister, having served four churches—Bainbridge Grove in Christian County, Concord in Hopkinsville, Barbourville First, and Central City First.
Lowery was a member of the Mission Board of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, chairman of the KBC Business and Finance Committee, and served on the Administrative Committee.
“Bob loved evangelism and missions and led his churches to outstanding support of Cooperative program and other mission programs,” said David Royalty, pastor of First Baptist Church of Joelton, Tenn.
“Bob was a dear friend and fought a courageous battle. He spoke the truth without hesitancy,” he added.
Survivors include his wife, Charlotte Rowland Lowery of Central City; father, Pete Lowery of Princeton; two sons, Jason Lowery of Eddyville, and Eric Lowery, of Frankfort; two grandchildren; and two sisters, Margie Lewis, of Princeton, and Teri Herbert, of Denver, Colo.
