March 28, 1930 - August 20, 2021
Lowell Purcell Amos (Arden), of Lehigh Acres, Florida, returned home to our Loving God on Friday, August 20, 2021. Lowell was born in Bellevue, Ohio on March 28, 1930 and lived for a brief time in Denver, Colorado where he worked with tennis professionals. He moved to Toledo, Ohio with his wife, Joan, to raise their 9 children. Mr. Amos was employed with the Sun Oil Company for 34 years, working as a machine tool room repair specialist for the majority of his employment. He enlisted in the Army National Guard from June, 1948 to June, 1951, and achieved the rank of Sargent. He was an entrepreneur and developed several home-based businesses during his lifetime. After retirement, he and his wife built their custom dream home in Lehigh Acres, Florida in 2001. Mr. Amos was a caring and devoted husband, generous father, and loved by all who knew him. He had a tremendous sense of humor, and his children remember him most for the hours spent with the family playing board games, softball, basketball, billiards, ping pong and word games. He loved watching Jeopardy and other knowledge-based game shows. He also loved crossword puzzles and computer-based games. Over his lifetime, he enjoyed boating, camping and home renovation. He was proud to be able to repair everything from toasters to cars. He held many part-time jobs in addition to his primary employment at the Sun Oil Company, including cab driver and appliance salesman. One of his favorite songs was The Impossible Dream. “To dream the impossible dream, to fight the unbeatable foe, to bear with unbearable sorrow, to run where the brave dare not go. To right the un-rightable wrong, to love pure and chaste from afar, to try when your arms are too weary, to reach the unreachable star. This is my quest, to follow that star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far. To fight for the right, without question or pause, to be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause. And I know, if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest, that my heart will lie peaceful and calm, when I’m laid to my rest. And the world will be better for this, and one man, sore and covered with scars, still strove with his last ounce of courage, to fight the unbeatable foe, to reach the unreachable star.” Mr. Amos is preceded in death by his wife, Joan Louise Amos, his mother Florence Munsing, his father Arden Amos, and his step-father, Emery Tuttle. He is survived by his children, Karen Tarvin, Sharon Bevington, Deborah Schramko, Bruce Amos, Cynthia Amos, Kevin Amos, Keith Amos, Kristina Amos-Perry, and Darren Amos. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Lisa Germana, Jason Leichty, Brian Widman, Corey Widman, Zachary Amos, Stephanie Amos, Steven Amos, Joey Amos, Christopher Amos, Johnathon Amos, Tristan Amos, Samuel Amos, Grant Perry, Gabrielle Perry, Noah Amos and Denali Amos. Private cremation services with the family were held in Lehigh Acres, Florida. Donations to memorialize Mr. Amos’s life may be made to the American Cancer Society.
