Obituary of Lowell Swisher
Lowell Swisher, 71, of Warsaw, Missouri, formerly of Windsor, Mo., died Tuesday evening, July 27, 2021, at University Hospital, Columbia, Mo., with his family by his side. He was born October 30, 1949, in Windsor, the son of Robert Samuel Swisher and Gladys Margueree (Crawford) Swisher. From his union to Connie Swisher, two children were born, Brett Robert and Bobbi Jean. Lowell was a 1967 graduate of Windsor High School. He extended his high school basketball career by playing for Highland College in Kansas. He earned a bachelors degree in physical education and health and a masters degree in special education. He served in the Army National Guard from 1971 to 1977 and was an American Family insurance agent. Returning to his love of sports, he taught and coached in the school districts of Northwest, Windsor, Leeton, Warsaw, Osage, and Lincoln. Over the years he coached basketball, baseball, volleyball, football and golf and taught PE, special education, and driver’s education. As much as he loved coaching, watching his grandchildren’s games took first place in Lowell’s heart. He also enjoyed playing golf and fishing. He was a member of the Windsor United Methodist Church and the Windsor American Legion. Survivors include a son, Brett Swisher (Johnna), Windsor, Mo.; a daughter, Bobbi Swisher, Warsaw, Mo.; 7 grandchildren, Taylor Swisher, Jaelyn Swisher, Jillian Swisher, Delainey Swisher, Robert Swisher, Jazzmyn Swisher, and Mustang Salley; a great-granddaughter, Marlee Jude DeLong; his loving companion, Lynda Martin and her daughter Jacque Sulsberger (Steve), all of Warsaw, Mo.; and several cousins and a host of friends, fellow coaches, former players, and students. He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant brother, Ronald Neil Swisher. Memorial services will be 2:00 p.m., Monday, August 2, 2021, at the Windsor United Methodist Church, with Pastor Pete Hill officiating. The family will receive friends before the service from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the church. Burial will be in the Laurel Oak Cemetery at a later date. The family suggests contributions to the Windsor Youth Baseball Softball Association (WYBSA) in care of the Hadley Funeral Home, Windsor. The family encourages stories to be shared below.
