JOPLIN, MO — Cecil R. Dowell, 75, left this world to go run trot lines in Heaven at the River of Life, July 21, 2010. Mr. Dowell was born Feb. 22, 1935, to Margarite Wilma (Wynn) and Orville Dowell in Webb City. He lived in this area all his life. Cecil worked for Sperry-Vickers for 24 years until they closed. He then became an over-the-road-truck driver until his retirement. Cecil had a quick wit, was always telling jokes and laughing. He kept us all entertained.

Also surviving are his children, Bob Dowell and Debbie, of Costa Rica, Ron Dowell and Simone, of Carl Junction, Mo., Tim Dowell and Lisa, of California, Wynn (Dowell) Smith and Sonya, of Oregon, John (Dowell) Smith and Lisa, of Joplin, Stephen Dowell and Roanna, of Joplin, Jenny Fort, of Seneca, Mo., Tammy Osborn and LeRoy, of Wyandotte, Okla., Kandi Anderson and Donnie, of Joplin, Debbie Collins, of Webb City, Jack Harper Jr. and Dobie, of Elm road, Scott Harper and Michelle, of Joplin, Jeff Harper, of Wyandotte, Okla., Regina Fowler, of Neosho, Mo., Missy Harper, of Joplin, Kennith Harper and Bobbie of Galena, Kan.
