Steve was born October 3, 1961 in Olney, Texas. In 1980, he graduated from Albany High School, and went on to work as a roughneck in the oil fields. Later, in the 90’s, during the Dessert Storm and Afghanistan wars, he began work as an Aviation Maintenance Heavy Structure and Modifications Mechanic for Northrop Grumman working on military air crafts. In 2003, he joined the team at L-3 Communications, where he also worked on military air crafts, until his illness in 2010.

Steve was very much a craftsman… he could create anything, ranging from mechanical devices, to intricate pieces of wood working. He was skilled with his hands, and loved creating custom cutting boards and furniture as gifts for others. Steve was a member of the Harley Owners Group, and took great pride in his Harley-Davidson Road King. His hobbies were motorcycle riding, listening to music, golf, and socializing with others. He was a loved husband and father, and he cherished his family greatly, as they did him.

He was preceded in death by his father, “Lefty”; and grandson, Peyton Simon.

He is survived by his loving wife, Jami Lowe, of China Spring; two sons Eric Rogillio and wife, Hanniah, of Lake Charles, LA, and Chris Stephens of Sheridan, AK; two daughters, Erin Rogillio of Lake Charles, LA, and Lauren Lowe of China Spring; 13 grandchildren, Heaven, Brian, Erica, Alvin, Anna, Abigail, Alex, Mason, Eric Zane, Eli, Alexis, and Hunter; one great-granddaughter, due to arrive in May; mother, Virginia Lowe of Albany; two brothers, Jay Ray Lowe and wife, Angela, of Graham, and Jim Tom Boland of Woodson; two sisters, Jimi Bates and husband, Don, of Graham, and Jeannie Herrington and husband, Mike, of Breckenridge; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other family members, and friends.

Memorials in Steve’s honor can be made to China Spring United Methodist Nurture Team.
