West Columbia, SC

Stanley Bruce Lowell, 74, of West Columbia, SC, died at his home of natural causes on February 20th, 2024. After a rough year medically, we celebrate his ultimate freedom to ride into the great beyond. Stan was born in Biddeford, Maine on July 7th, 1949 to Norman and Dorothy Hatt Lowell. After graduating from Biddeford High School, Stan served in the Navy in the late 1960s. After his discharge, Stan became a jack of all trades but was most known for restoring and selling motorcycles, cars, and motorcycle parts. And, of course, his prized Harley-themed Corvette. Stan was preceded in death by his parents Norman and Dorothy, his sister who died as a baby, his sister Sharolyn Lowell Gagnon, and his grandson, Andrew Pierce Wells. He leaves behind his daughter, Deborah Besinger, and her children, Gaige, Bliss, and True Wells all of Raleigh, NC. He leaves his son, Benjamin Lowell, and his wife, Kim, along with their sons, Liam Lowell and Nicholas Senasy of Cumberland, Maine. He also leaves behind his nephew, Tim Westleigh, and other extended relatives in Southern Maine. Stan was passionate about a few things in his life; storytelling, helping people through recovery, and restoring motorcycles and cars. After wading through his recovery journey 40-plus years ago, he dedicated the remainder of his life to sponsoring and helping countless others on their journey. He leaves behind a host of decades-long friends from both recovery and the biker world. Anyone who knew Stan knew you'd get a random phone call from him if he had your phone number and he could talk your ear off. He was a colorful storyteller and liked a captive audience. His daughter invites friends to an intimate memorial gathering to come and swap "Stan stories" on Saturday, March 2nd, 2024 at noon at Murray's Bar and Grille at 2433 Charleston Hwy, Cayce, SC. Stan will be buried in Southern Maine Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Springvale, Maine. He will receive Military honors at the burial and ceremony details will be announced once they are confirmed.

Sylvia Mae Young

Mar 29, 1934 - Feb 24, 2024

location-icon

Columbia, SC

Sylvia Mae (Royer) Young joined her heavenly Father on February 24, 2024, while in the home of her eldest daughter in Columbia, SC. Formerly a resident of DuBois, PA, Sylvia enjoyed living out the dream of her beloved husband of more than 60 years, Bill, of soaking in the warmth of the Carolinas over the past two years. Born on March 29, 1934, near Lock Haven, PA, the daughter of Leah Shady and Harry Royer, Sylvia became a self-taught gifted pianist, talented seamstress, and one heck of a cook. She loved sharing her recipes and kitchen skills with her three daughters, seven grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. Sylvia was also known as a lover of hummingbirds, hosting the symbols of joy and happiness on her front porch as they joined her for songs of praise and worship. Sylvia's most admirable accomplishment was her knowledge of God's Word, and putting her knowledge of God's Word into action through the way she loved others, and that her relationship with Christ brought the next three generations of her family to know and love Jesus. She constantly learned new things about God throughout her entire 90 years, being a great role model of what our lives with God are supposed to be like. She blessed so many during a variety of church gatherings, and her time ministering to patients and their families in the hospital, a true prayer warrior. Her family is so grateful to have had that example just living with them. As Sylvia joins her husband, William M. Young, and their son, Harry, she is survived by three daughters: Valerie (Paul) Barndt of Columbia, SC; Julia (David) Small of Carlisle, PA; and Patti (Andy) Spicher of Falls Creek, PA; seven grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
