Waldo Cliff Lowe

Waldo Cliff Lowe, 95, of Morgantown, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family on Monday, Aug. 19, 2019.
He was born March 30, 1924, in Morgantown, a son to the late Ralph Bussey and Icie Forest Cross Lowe.
Waldo attended Morgantown High School until being drafted in the U.S. Army. Waldo honorably served from 1942 until 1945. SGT. Waldo C. Lowe received two Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart. During his time in the service, he successfully landed an aircraft, when the pilot suffered acute appendicitis.
He was a member of the Elks Lodge No. 411, The Moose Lodge and the General Daniel Morgan VFW Post 548.
Waldo returned home and started Lowe Motor Sales in Westover and then worked in sales at Joe Reed Motors, Mileground Lincoln-Mercury and later John Howard Motors. He would continue in sales until just two years ago with Newton Manufacturing Co., where he was awarded top sales professional for two years selling specialty advertising. Waldo never really retired; he was making deals everywhere he went. It has been said Waldo, could sell ice to an Eskimo.
Waldo was an accomplished pilot, enjoyed boating but would rarely leave the limits of Morgantown, earning him the title of the Suncrest Patrolman.
