Dr. Lowell Matthew Williams, a member of the Old Fields, WV community, passed away peacefully on January 27, 2024, at the age of 91. Born on December 6, 1932, in Frostburg, MD, Lowell was the loving son of Matthew and DorothyMarie Kroll Williams. Dr. Williams was a longtime member of the Duffey Memorial United Methodist Church and Mountain Lodge #99, A.F. & A.M. of Frostburg, MD and a past member of the WV Board of Chiropractic Examiner’s.


After earning his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri, Lowell returned to his roots and established his practice in Moorefield and Westernport, MD. A pioneer in his field, Dr. Lowell made a lasting impact as a dedicated chiropractor for over 50 years.

Together, they explored the beauty of Deep Creek Lake and ventured to warm destinations during the winter months in Florida. Dr. Lowell's adventurous spirit even took him soaring through the skies as a licensed pilot, allowing him to navigate the world with ease.

He cherished the special moments shared with his daughters, Beverly Ann (Eric) See and Karen Beth (Brent) Williams-Ours-Bobo, and his grandchildren Shayna (Danny) Warnick, Tyson (Kelley) Ours, Ross (Ashley) Sherman, Ryan (Laura) See, and Crosby Ours.
