Perry – James Patrick Lowe, 76, passed away Tuesday, January 14, 2020 following a five year battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Jim was born in Eastport on June 16, 1943, son of the late Thomas and Mary (Farris) Lowe.

Jim attended Shead Memorial High School and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. Following his service, he returned to Eastport and worked for Guilford Industries, the Eastport Police Department as a police officer, and Pace-Pearl. Staying active in his community, he also became a firefighter for the Eastport Fire Department. In 1968, he married his love, Carolyn Maker. In 1974, Jim purchased Baycity Garage, owning and operating it for 30 years. After selling the garage in 2004, he worked as a security guard for Federal Marine.

In 1976, Jim became a Master Mason with Eastern Lodge #7 in Eastport where he served as Worshipful Master for several years. In 1980 he joined the Royal Arch Masons, in 1982 the Knights Templar, and in 1982 became a Shriner with Anah Shrine in Bangor. Jim was a member of Cobscook Post #59 American Legion in Pembroke. He enjoyed spending time on the boat on Boyden Lake. His true passion was photography. He enjoyed flying with his friends Dicky Flagg and Pat Candelmo which gave Jim the opportunity to take fantastic pictures of Eastport and the surrounding area.

In addition to his parents, Jim was predeceased by two sisters, Betty and husband Vaughn, and Catherine and husband Jack; three brothers, his twin Joseph, Robert and Michael; and a sister-in-law Nanette. Surviving are his loving wife of 51 years, Carolyn; a son Gene Morang of New Orleans, LA; a brother, Paul Lowe of Eastport; two sisters-in-law, Bessie Curtis of Dennysville, and Geraldine Farley of Edmunds; a brother-in-law Franklin Maker of Perry; and numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends.

A graveside service will be held in the spring at Hillside Cemetery in Eastport. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jim’s memory may be made to Downeast EMS, PO Box 552, Calais, ME 04619. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.

Jim was a kind man and a very good friend of my father (Dick Flagg). I remember Jim being especially thoughtful and gracious to me and my family when my father passed away. Jim took and gave me one of my favorite pictures of dad that I still cherish today. Jim was a man of many talents and photography was certainly one of them! I also remember him helping my dad keep his various dilapidated vehicles on the road! Dad loved flying with Jim! My sincere condolences to your family. ~Richard Flagg~

A great loss for our community-Jimmy's involvement with community -not years but generations of never forget our Veterans and his Masons. Our community has raised up to support him. I have see it when on a Sunday he and the Mason volunteered to show respect to make a cemetery whole after vandalism, Jimmy gave us generations of leadership and standards to reach for.

“My Friends, the roll of the workmen has been called, and one Master Mason has not answered to his name.
He has laid down the working tools of the Craft and with them he has left that mortal part for which he no longer has use.
His labors here below have taught him to divest his heart and conscience of the vices and superfluities of life, thereby fitting his mind
as a living stone for that spiritual building — that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
Strengthened in his labors here by faith in God, and confident of expectation of immortality,
he has sought admission to the Celestial Lodge above.”
Our heartfelt sympathy to Carolyn & family and may Jim be blessed and find peace as he journeys on.
“There are some who bring a light to the world that even after they are gone the light remains”
We knew such a man..
