FRANKFORD — Willard Nathan Lowman, who died March 18, 2013, will be honored at a memorial service on Saturday, April 13 at 3 p.m. in the Herzbrun Room at the McDowell Public Library in Welch.

After Pearl Harbor, Willard enlisted in the Marines, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant, and served during World War II with the Third Air Wing. He also served during the Korean conflict.
