George Lowell Cable, 85, joined his Lord on May 6, 2022. Born January 13, 1937 to Dwight and Annie Lou Cable of Sugar Grove, NC, he first learned the virtues of hard work and faith as a farmer. He then worked as a furniture manufacturing lineman for a time before finding work first as an employee and then eventually, as the plant manager of Shadowline in Boone, NC for 44 years.
Lowell spent his life reading, studying, and for a good portion of time, teaching the Bible in Sunday school. An avid fisherman, he loved nothing more than to fish crappie tournaments and talk about his adventures at the annual fish fry he and his wife, Betty, hosted in July. He also served his country as a proud member of the Army 24th Infantry Division.
