MSGT Retired 
Cancer

 

Entered Into Eternal Rest
Tuesday, July 13, 2010

11 Dec 1938 - 13 Jul 2010 

MSgt (Ret) Lawrence Michael "Larry" Lower passed away the evening of July 13, 2010, after a long battle with cancer. The current CCA Treasurer and a former two-term Association President, Larry will be sorely missed by all of us.

Born December 11, 1938, in Seattle, Larry enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in June, 1956, at the age of 17.

His first CCT assignment was to the 2nd Aerial Port Squadron at Sewart AFB, Tennessee. Over his twenty-year military career, Larry repeatedly distinguished himself while serving as a Combat Controller, a member of the "Blue Masters" Parachute Demonstration Team, a parachuting instructor at the U. S. Air Force Academy and, in the closing years of his career, an Air Force Recruiter. Among his decorations is a Bronze Star medal awarded during his 1968-1969 tour of duty in the Republic of Vietnam.
Retiring from the Air Force in 1977, Larry spent the next 25 years running a successful travel agency in Reno, Nevada.

Permanently retiring in the 1990's, Larry relocated to the Florida Panhandle in 2001. He was an avid lover of German Shepherd dogs. Larry is survived by his wife Beverly Anne, step-children Cynthia, Martin, and Lee May, good friend George McLain, and his loyal canine companions BJ and Baron.
