Lowell was born in Hobbs on January 28, 1962 to his loving parents Lowell Sr and Louise Hughes, one of three boys. After high school he attended the New Mexico Jr College where he and his father were the first parent child pair to graduate together in 1982. Lowell then went on to attend Beeville College where he graduated in 1985 with an associate degree in Dental Hygiene. A year later Lowell took his skills over-seas and worked in Switzerland for a year before coming home and working over 30 years in the Hobbs/Lovington area as every child's favorite dental hygienist. Lowell married his childhood sweetheart, Janet, in 2005 and together they shared just under 14 years. He is preceded in death by his son, Jonathan Thomas Hughes.
Lowell will always be remembered in the hearts of those he left behind, his lovely wife Janet Hughes, parents Lowell Sr and Louise Hughes, 2 brothers Micheal and Von, and children Kelsey Garcia, Amber Davidson and Chris Trujillo all of Hobbs.
He will be remembered for the love and dedication he had for his job. We will miss his beautiful smiles, his laughter, his love for dogs and for children. Lowell will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
