WOOSTER – Lowell D Garver, 82, of Wooster passed away Friday, November 13, 2009 in Mercy Medical Center in Canton. .

Lowell worked at Rubbermaid for 36 years, retiring in January of 1989. He was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and served in the Wooster Congretation for over 38 years. His confidence was in God’s Kingdom promises found in the Bible, such as Isaiah 25:8 He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. This hope sustained him through many trails, and he found delight in sharing this with others.
Lowell was a kind, generous and hard working man. He was a good husband, father and grandfather who will be dearly missed by those who loved him.
