Second Lieutenant Francis Brown Lowry of the 91st Aero Squadron, Coast Artillery Corps, was killed in action while on a photo-reconnaissance mission flying through a heavy anti-aircraft barrage in hostile territory in France. Originally buried in Argonne cemetery in France, he was moved to Fairmount cemetery in Colorado in 1921. Lowry's name was used for the new airfield in 1938. In 1948 Lowry Airfield became Lowry Air Force Base. After the base closed in 1994 a new elementary school opened on the property in 2002 and was named the Lowry Elementary School. Lt. Lowry was posthumously awared the Distinguished Service Cross.
