Dave Lowery Retires from Co-op
Victory Electric Journeyman DAVE LOWERY will retire after 39 years of service.
The Ohio native moved to Dodge City in the mid-70s and worked as a contractor before beginning his career with Aquila as a second-year apprentice lineman.
Lowery earned his journeyman status while at Victory Electric and has worked with several crews.
"I learned everything hands-on," Lowery said. "It has been a good career."
Lowery announced his retirement and will use his accrued vacation time before retiring on April 20.
"I am going to spend my time raising cattle, farming, and riding horses," Lowery said. "I have four horses and a mule who all need some time on them. Now, I will have the time to do it."
Lowery has three sons and two grandkids, with one on the way. "I will spend more time with them,” he said. “They don't all live in Dodge so seeing them more will be nice."
Lowery is also very active with the Dodge City Roundup and still serves as a board member on the Prairie Circuit.
"I've served on the Roundup since 1987 and have worked all of the ranks from member to president from 2000 to 2001. It's something I really have enjoyed," Lowery said. "I love rodeo. I don't compete anymore, but I like being involved."
Victory Electric wishes Dave a relaxing retirement and thanks him for his many years of service.
