Lowell R. Holycross of Covington, Indiana, entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior at

He was born April 1, 1920, in Warren County, the son of Roscoe J. and Virgie (Crisp)

parents and his sister, Thelma L. Holycross.

Lowell served in the Navy during World War II and was stationed in San Diego, California.
After his tour of duty, he and Maxine settled in Sullivan, Indiana, and managed the Economy
