Dr. Easter Home With the Lord

Former board member Lowell Easter went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, August 27, 2011, at the age of 89. Dr. Easter joined the CCC National Advisory Board in 1989 and the CCC Voting Board in 1992 where he served until his retirement in 2002. During his association with the college, he was instrumental in helping CCC significantly increase our library facility to house the newly acquired former Yankton College collection, and expand the campus from the original 50 acres to our present 138 acres through the purchase of property adjacent to our main campus. In recognition of his faithful service to the college, Clearwater Christian College awarded Mr. Easter an honorary doctorate in 1992. Dr. Easter was also recognized by the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF) as a ‘Champion of Private Higher Education.’ Since his retirement from the college board, Dr. Easter has resided in Clearwater and remained a faithful member of Lakeside Community Chapel.

In commenting on Dr. Easter’s ministry at CCC, President Stratton stated that “Dr. Easter was a wonderful friend to Clearwater Christian College. He gave generously to help fund a number of different projects on our campus. In addition, he was an incredibly gracious gentleman. I appreciated his kind spirit, and he gave strong evidence of a Christ-honoring, humble personality. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his dear wife and to other family members. His loss will leave a great hole, but we have the confidence that he is now rejoicing in the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ.”

Dr. Easter’s funeral service will be held Friday, September 2. For further information about that service and Dr. Easter, go to
