Rev. Lowell Erdahl died Dec. 14 at age 90. He was very well known in Minnesota. Details were in the Dec. 19 Minneapolis Star Tribune, which can be read here: Lowell Erdahl obituary Dec 19 2021.
My particular connection to Rev. Erdahl was in the area of peace and justice. As his obituary states, “throughout his life he was an advocate, champion and leader for peace and justice.” He “walked the talk”. Lowell joins a long list of peace and justice leaders who passed on in recent years. Their legacy is now the responsibility of those of us for whom they were mentors.
Those active in the movement for peace and justice will likely recognize the names of some of Lowells colleagues who have passed on. These are leaders I came to know personally. My apologies for any inadvertent oversights of others who I missed.
It’s our turn, and our children generation, to carry on.
R.I.P. in the last 20 years : Lowell Erdahl, Hank and Dotty Garwick, Joe Schwartzberg, Lynn Elling, Leslie Reindl, Mary Rose Goetz, Mary Lou Nelson, Mary White, Don Irish, Lyle Christianson, Veryln Smith, Wayne Wittman, Bob Heberle, John Braun, Tom Atchison.
