Mr. Charles Fredrick “Ricky” Lowry of Pembroke, NC departed this life to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, February 6, 2024 surrounded by his family. Ricky was born on November 16, 1957 in Robeson County to the late Mr. Billy and Mrs. Minnie S. Lowry of Pembroke, NC. He was preceded in death by his two brothers and his sister: Mr. Mitchell Lowry, Mr. Billy D. Lowry and Mrs. Deana “Shug” L. Warriax and his grandson, Jamison Hunter Brixey.
He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 38 years, Cynthia “Cindy” Taylor Lowry, his daughter Kristy Lynn Lowry of North Myrtle Beach, SC, and his two sons, Charles Taylor Lowry (Christy) and Jarrett Taylor Lowry (Paige) both of Pembroke, NC. He had five grandchildren, Landri Strickland, Chloe Strickland, Harley Madsion Brixey, Jamison Lowery and Maddox Kase Lowry; two sisters Mrs. Patricia Chavis (Kenneth), Ms. Pam Brooks of Pembroke, NC; one-half sister Mrs. Charlotte W. Link (Brad) of Valdese, NC and sister-n-law Ms. Rosalind Lowry of Pembroke, NC and a host of relatives and friends.
In his lifetime, Ricky worked in several different places, but he retired from Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Fayetteville, NC with 25 years of service in February 2022. His co-workers described him as a hard-working, dedicated man. His ultimate passion was taking care of his family. He was a loving husband, amazing father and papa to his grandchildren. He loved the outdoors, especially hunting with his sons and friends. His finger prints were in the community from coaching little league Baseball to motorcycle benefit rides. He was a charitable, loving and giving person, always willing to help those in need. Along with his love for attending antique car shows, he enjoyed his travel time in the mountains with his wife Cindy and his favorite traveling couple, Ricky and Sylvia Johnson. He considered Sandy Plains to be his home church and enjoyed hearing Gods word whether from the church pews or from the outdoor speaker from the comforts of his home.
