Man is seeking to reconnect with friends

My name is Joseph Lowatchie, age 91. I was raised in Beckley during the 1930s. I delivered The Raleigh Register for a number of years when I was in school.

The reason for this letter to the editor is to ask if anyone remembers me! I went to Sylvia grade school and Woodrow Wilson High School.

When I left Beckley, I went into the Army at the age of 16. My sister, Margaret, signed my papers for me as my mother wouldn’t. My brothers were Steve, Frank and Bill and I had sisters Margaret and Helen. My oldest sister, Anne, was married to Mack Korman.

If you remember me, please e-mail me at or call me at 509-962-3033 as I’d love to hear from you.

Thank you.

Joseph Lowatchie
