VAUGHN C. LOWE, 89, of Follansbee, WV passed away peacefully on April 11, 2023 with his loving family by his side at PAM Health Specialty Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA. Vaughn was born on October 7, 1933 in Hundred, WV to the late Frank and Edna (Church) Lowe. Vaughn was very proud to have served his country during the Korean War as a member of the U.S. Air Force. He retired from International Mill Service in Weirton, WV after 22 years. After retiring, he worked security for DataTrac and Wal-Mart Distribution Center. He was a loving father, husband, grandfather and friend, with a deep and loyal commitment to his family. He also loved spending his time helping animals. Vaughn led a full and active life. He had a strong work ethic, bringing the quality of excellence to everything he set out to do, and could fix almost anything.
