Fred was born on April 17, 1935, to Newell Tom & Mary Lowhorn in Lillydale, Tennessee. He was the seventh son out of ten siblings. Fred moved to Albany, KY when Dale Hollow Lake was formed in 1943. On May 13, 1954, Fred married the love of his life, Mary Letha Groce in Albany, KY. After their wedding Fred & Mary moved to Indiana to find factory work. While living in Indiana they welcomed their first child, Linda Diane Lowhorn in 1955. Mary was homesick after two years and they decided to move back to Albany, KY. After settling back into Albany, KY they welcomed their second child, Rita Carol Lowhorn, in 1957. Three years later they welcomed their third child, Jerry Lynn Lowhorn in 1960. Fred was a devoted member of Lee’s Chapel Church, where he served as church superintendent, Sunday school teacher and active board member. Fred worked at Kellwood, Osh Kosh and Winningham as a factory worker for several years until retiring to work on his farm.  

In his spare time Fred loved to hunt, fish, and spend time with his family. Fred loved Sunday afternoon meals with his family to catch up on everyone’s week and to spend time with his family. Fred always enjoyed sharing memories of his childhood with his family and loved ones. Fred & Mary were married 66 years before she passed away on September 17, 2020.

He was a avid cattle and tobacco farmer since the 1970's.
