James R. LOW, 83, of Knoxville, PA


James R. LOW

James R. LOW, 83, of Knoxville, PA, died Monday, January 24, 2022 in his home surrounded by his loving family.  

Born October 30, 1938, in Leetonia, he was the son of Jay and Irene Buckingham Low. On June 5, 1976, in West Bingham, he married the former Diane M. Bartoo, who survives.  A Vietnam War Veteran, he served honorably with the U.S. Army from 1961—1963.  He was employed by Ingersoll Rand / Dresser-Rand in Painted Post, NY for 36 years.  He was a member of the People’s Church of Potter Brook.  Jim loved the outdoors.  Raised on a dairy farm, his love of animals and the earth was a mainstay of his life.  An avid hunter, Jim saw hunting season as an opportunity to be in the woods and spend time with family.  He especially loved swapping hunting stories-be it the trips to Colorado hunting elk or fishing Kettle Creek with his brothers.  In his younger years, Jim owned and operated his own dairy farm while working at Ingersoll Rand.  

Even after selling his farm, he raised livestock and had a large vegetable garden.  In retirement, he could be found spending hours in his garden weeding or mowing the yard.  Jim was one of the good ones.  Hard working, a kind heart, a generous spirit, easy going nature, and a good story or joke to tell-he brought joy to all who knew him.  He loved his wife, daughters, son-in-law and especially his grandson, Noah.  He cared deeply for his siblings and loved to recount stories of their upbringing.  He faithfully served in his church of Potter Brook for decades as a trustee and grounds keeper.  It is because of his faith in Jesus Christ we know he is rejoicing in heaven.  And while we will miss him here on this earth, we know we will be together again.  
U.S. Army Veteran

Surviving besides his wife, Diane, are:  two daughters, Lori Low of Knoxville and Tammy (E. Matthew) Zehr of Westfield;  a grandson, Noah Zehr;  six siblings, Eugene Low of Shinglehouse, Donald (Anita) Low of Shinglehouse, Pearl Faulkner of Wellsboro, Carol (Dennis) Voorhees of Pen Argyl, Patricia Bollinger of Shinglehouse, and Ethel (Tunk) Phillips of Shinglehouse; nieces and nephews.

FUNDING AVAILABLE TO LANDOWNERS THROUGH THE VOLUNTARY PUBLIC ACCESS/HABITAT INCENTIVE PROGRAM


HARRISBURG, Pa. (January 25) -- Great fishing locations and a wide variety of fish species have helped make fishing one of Pennsylvania’s’ most popular outdoor activities.  To support this popular activity, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is seeking willing landowners to enter into an agreement to allow public fishing access on their property. 

The PFBC is offering landowners a one-time payment for granting a public fishing and habitat improvement easement.  The payment is based on several factors including the amount of stream frontage and the value of the fishery.  By taking advantage of this program, landowners contribute to fishing access opportunities in their own communities while still retaining ownership and control of the land.

Agreements under this program are a voluntary and permanent legal contract between the landowner and the PFBC.  These easements provide a corridor along a stream that allows the public to wade in and walk along the stream bank for the purpose of fishing.  Entering into the agreement preserves landowner rights and provides additional benefits. Landowners may still use the property for other activities.  Landowners may limit public access for other purposes such as camping or hunting.

Funding for this opportunity is provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program.  The NRCS is a service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Landowners interested in this opportunity, or who want more information about this program, should visit the PFBC website or contact Scott Bollinger at (717) 346-8196 or scbollinge@pa.gov.
