Dwayne Lowe

Dwayne Lowe

Former Owner, Retired

I began my association with the funeral profession as a senior in high school at Rudolph Funeral Home in Waxahachie, Texas. I worked there for the next 10 years and decided I didn't want to be an ambulance jockey the rest of my life so I went to work at the local bank. I continued in the banking profession for the next 28 years but still having the desire to return to the funeral profession, my wife Lucy and I purchased the Cain Fueral Home and have continued the tradition of professional and caring service to the wonderful folks in Quitman and Wood County area. I am a graduate of Dallas Institute of Funeral Service.
