Default Lowell LeMay

Lowell LeMay passed away 30 Dec 2021. This obit was written by a long time Falcon Flight wingman holding formation card #2. Lowell Lemay began his career in the USAF as an enlisted gunner on the Convair B-36 and finished as a full colonel flying the RF-4C tactical reconnaissance Phantom. As an original member of Falcon Flight, a formation demonstration team based in Texas and flying RV aircraft, Lowell flew many air shows first in his RV 4 and later in the RV 7 he built. Lowell’s military experience in formation flying and his quiet way of suggesting a better way was invaluable to the many new members of Falcon Flight. Personable, kind, and never raising his voice but quietly helping others improve their formation skills was his hallmark. Lowell helped design the very large formation arrivals and flyovers Falcon Flight and other RV formation groups initiated at AirVenture. Lowell was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Wanda. Lowell will be interned at the Fort Sam Houston national cemetery, with a fitting missing man flyover performed by Falcon Flight.
