Septem­ber 19, 1931 - Len­noxville, Que­bec June 28, 2015 - Cal­gary, Al­berta

Don, beloved hus­band of Doris Vi­ola ( Jenk­ins), of Cal­gary, AB, passed away on June 28, 2015 at the age of 83 years. Don was born in Len­noxville, Que­bec on Septem­ber 19, 1931, the son of the late Ce­cil W. Glen­dora (Ed­wards) Bowen and step­mother Pauline (Ed­wards) Bowen. He grew up in Granby, Que­bec with his sis­ter, Pat (Bowen) Jarvis, and brother, Harold Bowen. Don at­tended Aca­dia Univer­sity and grad­u­ated with a de­gree in Ge­ol­ogy. His pro­fes­sional ca­reer brought him to Al­berta where he was em­ployed by Im­pe­rial Oil for 30 years. Don is sur­vived by his lov­ing wife, Doris ( for­merly of Char­lot­te­town, P.E.I.), to whom he was dearly de­voted and mar­ried to for 55 years. An en­dur­ing mem­ory to all will be Don and Doris hold­ing hands as they were insep­a­ra­ble. To­gether they had four chil­dren, spouses, 10 grand­chil­dren and two great­grand­chil­dren. Don loved the out­doors, which in­cluded: camp­ing, fish­ing, hik­ing, boating, bird­ing, and shar­ing these ac­tiv­i­ties with his lov­ing fam­ily. He sup­ported his chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties by coach­ing hockey, soc­cer, and lead­ing scout troops. Once the grand­chil­dren ar­rived, Papa, as he was of­ten af­fec­tion­ately known, kept ac­tive by at­tend­ing more soc­cer games, cel­e­bra­tions and var­i­ous per­for­mances. What spare time he had he en­joyed play­ing cards, do­ing puzzles and cross­words. Don will be greatly missed by his chil­dren, Fred­er­ick Bowen and his wife Marie, Robert Bowen, Wayne Bowen and his wife Heather, and Irene Bowen and her hus­band Ryan Ry­bchuk. A Cel­e­bra­tion of Don’s Life will be held at McIn­nus & Hol­loway (Fish Creek, 14441 Ban­nis­ter Road S.E.) on Fri­day, July 3, 2015 at 10 a.m. For­ward con­do­lences through www.mcin­nisand­hol­ If friends so de­sire, me­mo­rial tributes may be made di­rectly to the Cana­dian Can­cer So­ci­ety, 200 - 325 Man­ning Rd.
