Lowell DuWayne Taubert was born October 29, 1927 to Joseph and Louise Taubert in Benson, Minnesota, the first of three children. Lowell grew up in Danvers and spent many days hunting for pheasant to put on the dinner table. Lowell and his sisters and mother moved to Benson when he was in the eighth grade. He enlisted in the Navy when he was seventeen years old and toured the Pacific during World War II. He witnessed atom-bomb tests and was responsible to remove radiated items from the ships after testing.
After honorable discharge from the service, Lowell married his sweetheart from Milaca High School on June 25, 1949. Lowell and his bride, Evelyn (Carlson), just recently celebrated 65 years of marriage!
Lowell attended Dunwoody College to learn automotive repair after being wed to Evelyn. He worked for Coon Rapids Ford for many years, and then worked for Good Value Home Builders.
In that time, Lowell and Evelyn had five children. Lowell was a good provider for his children, and taught them the value of hard work and clean living. They attended Coon Rapids Evangelical Free Church every Sunday and spent summer vacations at Lake Miltona in Alexandria.
Lowell loved hunting and fishing. He was very athletic, pitching softball for the Coon Rapids Evangelical Free Church and enjoyed bowling on several leagues. He raced cars at Princeton Speedway with his sons, and rode horses in Elk River Saddle Club game shows. He passed away on July 24th at the St. Cloud VA Medical Center.
Lowell is preceded in death by his parents; sister, Doris Budd; son, Gregory Taubert, and daughter, Wendy (Alan) Debban.
Lowell is survived by his wife, Evelyn Taubert; sister, Marlyn (Leonard) Anderson; son, Douglas Taubert, and daughters, Janell (Michael) Lefler and Debra (Phillip) Sonnenberg; grandchildren, Loren, Joe, Rachel, Angela, Adam, Jessie, Christina, and Kelly, and thirteen great-grandchildren.
He will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
