News of the owner of Celebration, the age old and original farm-to-table restaurant in Dallas, passed away this week. Ed Lowe opened Celebration in 1971 when Lowe was 22 years old and has been expanding since, even opening a satellite shop in the outer reaches of his parking lot to sell jams, breads and fresh vegetables that he used at the restaurant.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Lowe was scouting out a campsite in Big Bend when he took a tumble to his death.
