Lowell Herell


Lowell Herell was born on September 29, 1939 in Purcell, Oklahoma to parents Thomas and Abbie (Bice) Herell and entered into eternal rest on Dec. 4, 2019 in Kemp, Texas.

He graduated from Purcell High School, where he played football and was a very active student. Lowell had a tight group of friends during his high school years and they remained in touch with each other through the years. He served our country in the United States Army.

Lowell later married the love of his life, Jolanda “Lonnie” Kindblade in Purcell, Okla. on Aug. 29, 1964. Together they started to build their life, having two children. Lowell was self-employed in the oil and gas industry. He enjoyed hunting, sports, loved being on the lake and watching his western movies. Lowell was very civic minded, serving on many local boards, as well as being a Mason.

After living in Tucson, Ariz., for 27 years, he and Lonnie moved to the Kemp area to retire. Lowell continued traveling with his family and really enjoyed the mountains. He was always a hard worker, loved playing the lotto and never met a stranger. Lowell was funny, even hilarious and was always the life of the party. He was tidy and very clean. He would clean a “clean” car and mow a “mowed” lawn.

He was a member of St. James Episcopal Church on the Lake. Lowell loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His family loved him just as much. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother. Lowell will be missed immensely by all those who knew and loved him.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Tommy Herell.
