Lowry, Joseph A. "Joe"

Joseph A. Lowry (Joe), 81, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully after a brief illness on Thursday, July 8, 2021 surrounded by his family. He was born in Philadelphia, PA., and was the son of the late Teresa (Durney) and Joseph F. Lowry.

Joe started his career at Deloitte Haskins and Sells and then went on to DuPont de Nemours, Inc spending over 30 years in a variety of corporate finance roles including mergers and acquisitions, financial analysis while ending his career as Director of Accounting Policy.

He had many interests including flounder fishing off the Jersey Coast, golfing (racking up 3 holes-in-one), reading and traveling (especially to Italy and Ireland) but what gave him the most joy were holiday dinners with family and relatives and summers at his Jersey shore house with as many children, in-laws and grandchildren as possible.
