My sympathies to the Bowman family. Worked with Ralph at HPD. I was Vice Pres. of FOP 38 while Ralph was President. Went on many fishing trips to Canada with him. Always enjoyed his company. He was a good man.
R.I.P "BO"', spent a lot of days riding cycles on the H.P.D. with Ralph in the early 60's, he was a good officer and was a kind person as well. Very sorry for his passing, he will not be forgotten.
So sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. I enjoyed knowing him while he was on the police department. He and Gaston Bowling rode their motorcycles out here to Colorado for a visit a number of years ago and Ralph took a bad spill on his and I drove over to Utah to pick him up and put him on a plane for Hamilton. I really will miss this great guy! My sympathy to Ralph's family.
Ralph was one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. All retired police officers owe him alot for his hard work and diligence for getting a better working wage and pension benefits for us all. That great smile will be missed. Dan Lang
