Lowell Williams Obituary

Lowell P. Williams, 68, was born February 11, 1955 in Nyssa, OR to his wonderful parents, Gordon J. Williams, and Alyce (Pincock) Williams. 

Lowell passed away October 16, 2023 in Boise, ID with his family all around him.

He was raised in a loving family with 6 older siblings who adored their baby brother, sisters Janice and Linda; brothers Brent, Morris, Glade, and David.

Lowell graduated from Nyssa High School in 1973. It was in high school where he met the love of his life, Jodi Holcomb. He told her the minute he saw her, he knew he was going to marry her and so they did on June 14, 1975.

Lowell entered the US Army two weeks after the wedding and the next three years he was stationed in Denver, CO and Wurzburg, Germany where he and Jodi enjoyed traveling to so many wonderful places.

After leaving the Army, they moved to Newberg, OR and he began his career as a plumber. In 1980 they started their family with the birth of their son, Kyle Scott and younger brother, Aaron Joseph joining in 1983. His sons were the light of his life and through his loving example and strong work ethic he taught them how to be good men and contribute to the world. He would do anything for his family by doing millions of little things quietly behind the scenes. Not a day went by that we did not feel loved and safe.

In 1985 the family moved to Grangeville, ID and he started Williams Plumbing. He had an old red panel truck and with a stack of business cards he went up and down Main Street introducing himself. He developed lifelong customers and friends through his business and was proud of his company. In January of this year, he sold the business to Scott Winkler who had worked with him for over 18 years. He was very honored when Scott asked to continue doing business under the name of Williams Plumbing. He did not get to fully retire, as he stayed busy around the apartment complex he and Jodi own. As his health began to make things harder for him, he never gave up. He would get up and go, do his best and then come home to rest. He inspired all of us to be positive and grateful for the life we have. 

Lowell was an easy man to be around. A little on the quiet side, he had a great sense of humor.  He loved to cook and was very good at it. If he got wind of family coming for a visit, out came the pots and pans. In the early 2000’s he and Jodi each got a Harley so they hit the open road as often as they could with his sister, Linda, her husband Jon, along with many friends, making great memories. He enjoyed going on side-by-side rides, snowmobiling, relaxing at the family cabin, working in the yard or on one of his projects. He loved a good project. If his family was there, he was all in. The joy in his eyes when his granddaughters, Emmy, Addi, Aisly and Raegan, were near was so bright. He was proud of them, their accomplishments and supported them in all their endeavors. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Janice and husband Roger Skeen, brother Brent and wife Myrna, brothers David and Glade.

He is survived by his wife, Jodi, of Grangeville, son Kyle (Kelli) Addi & Aisly of Clarkston, WA, and son Aaron (Kaila) Emmy & Raegan of Grangeville, sister Linda and Jon Iverson of McCall, ID, brother Morris and Paula Williams of Mesa, AZ, sisters in law, LeRoyce and Susan along with so many wonderful nieces and nephews.

It is hard to sum up such a kind and caring man in a few short sentences. Who he was at his core, was love and family. We all miss him beyond measure, and we hold him in our hearts forever.

A celebration of Lowell will be held on Friday, November 3rd at 1:00 PM at the Elks Lodge in Grangeville with a meal to follow. Arrangements are under the direction of the Blackmer Funeral Home, Grangeville. Send condolences to the family at
