Foy was born June 7, 1923, to Josh and Hazel Lowe. He fell in love with a beautiful young lady, Williadene "Billie" Coffman, and they married May 2, 1941. Foy and Billie were inseparable for 70-plus years. They took care of each other for as long as they both lived on this earth. Their love for each other produced three wonderful children, Marshall, Roger and Lynda. Foy served his country in the Pacific during World War II.

Following the war, he served as a salesman and eventually retired as an executive for Franklin Labs after 30-plus years. Foy's job required he and Billie to move for brief periods of time, but Springtown was always home. Foy and Billie loved Springtown and its people. Foy served the people of Springtown as their mayor for several years. Foy and Billie loved their church family that extended to many places around the world, but specifically the members of the Church of Christ in Springtown. Foy served faithfully as an elder of the church for 40-plus years.
Foy and Billie's true love was their family of three children, eight grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. Proverbs 20:7 says, "God-loyal people, living honest lives, make it much easier for their children." As Foy and Billie's family, we celebrate Foy's exhilarating finish in and with God, and his eternity in heaven. Pappaw, we thank you for making it much easier for your children.

Foy was preceded in death by his parents, Josh and Hazel "Dude" Lowe; his brother, ML Lowe; his daughter-in-law, Freda Lowe; and his great-grandson, Ryan Lowe.

Survivors: His loving wife of 70 years, Billie; sons, Marshall Lowe and wife, Shirley, of Springtown and Roger Lowe and wife, Ellen, of Watauga; daughter, Lynda Bryant and husband, Bill, of Poolville; eight grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren.
