Dr. Paul Boatman, Dr. Lowery’s long-time colleague and co-dean of the Seminary, sent this announcement via campus email shortly after 8:00 AM today:
Bob Lowery spent a peaceful night in his hospital room with his family nearby. His breathing is halting and labored, but he does not seem to be in pain. His departure appears to be imminent, but his strong heart keeps pumping for now. We join family in praying for his peaceful passage.
While visitation with Bob is not appropriate at this time, the family in the waiting area would be receptive to a few visits.
NOTE: Dr. Lowery is at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln, IL.
