Lowell A. Cahill passed away at 8:44 am, Sunday, February 28, 2021, at Memorial Gables in Marysville, Ohio.

Lowell was born February 2, 1937 in rural Hardin County to James A. and Mabel (Caldwell) Cahill.  On December 1, 1956, he married Virginia (Nickels) Cahill, who preceded him in death June 2, 2014.

He will be greatly missed by his daughter, Darla (Fred) Reinemeyer of Dublin, OH, and grandchildren Troy Reinemeyer (Samantha Koeninger) of Hamilton, OH, and Kelly (Beaux) Wallace of Hilliard, OH.

He was also preceded in death by sisters Hilda (Chuck) Pearson, Ruth (Bill) Harp, Wilma (Harry) Gunnett, brothers Lloyd (Betty) Caldwell, Ormal (Esther) Caldwell, and several nieces and nephews.

Lowell worked initially as a young man in carpentry and home construction in the Kenton area, then worked as an engineer for the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad, which became a part of the Conrail system from which he later retired.  A life-time member of the Kenton Church of the Nazarene, Lowell was passionate about family, faith, and his church family.  At times, he could be found filling many roles, from Sunday School Teacher or Treasurer to various church board positions. In addition, he was an active participant for many years in the Nazarene District leadership.

Lowell taught us all what it was to be a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, uncle, a great listener, and a very faithful friend to many.
