So sorry for your loss. We remember Larry with a smile on our faces. He always made us laugh. I have fond memories of our High School years at your home,Shell. Your parents filled your home with love, laughter, delicious pizza and crazy fun.
Larry will be missed by all.
Love to all and God Bless.
Love, Kem, Kim and Family
Larry touched our lives in many ways. Roseanne will always remember him as loving brother who, among other things, helped her with geometry during her high school days. Mike remembers his many discussions with Larry on a variety of issues. Our children remember his always asking each of them to become a doctor. He was a wonderful husband and father who loved his family. We are comforted knowing that he and Marie are together again.
Our love to Michelle, Greg and their families.

Both of your parents were such good friends to my parents ( Alan & Elizabeth Smith) and I have very fond memories of them all together. I know your Dad will be missed and I am glad I knew them both. As my mom said when she learned of his passing, "well I know now that Larry is dancing again with Marie"

My sincere condolences to the Bowman family. Though I have not met you, knowing Larry, I know what a hole has been left in your lives with his passing. But Larry lives on in the hearts of you all and in the hearts of those he touched by his wisdom and kindness.
Larry loved his country, family, his profession and belonging to the brotherhood he shared with his fellow Marines, past and present, from Belleau Wood to Fallujah, all who have ever worn the Eagle Globe and Anchor, and earned the title Marine.
Larry well knew that sense of belonging to something that will outlive our own mortality, belonging to a proud heritage which gives people "a light to live by".
So Larry forever lives on in your hearts and in the souls of his fellow Marines and while all Marines die in either "the red flash of battle" or "the white cold of the nursing home" or in the warmth of their beds with those whom they most loved and sacrificed for gathered about them, but the Marine Corps lives on.
Larry, like every Marine who has ever lived and died, is living still, in the hearts and honor of the Marines who today claim that title that Larry long ago earned and so cherished.
So Larry outlives his mortality and remains a part of the flame that he became a part of when he earned the title MARINE! That flame always has and always will give people a light to live by, and it will forever mark Larry's legacy.
SEMPER FI Larry
We are praying for you and your family, Michelle, and rejoicing in the life of your father. Heaven is such a comforting hope. Pastor Bob and Jett
Larry was a 'character' who's sense of humor will always be remembered, my best friend's daddy who teased us relentlessly. Larry was a family man, a good man. My memories of him literally go back as far as my first memories. He will forever be a part of my childhood.
Our prayers are with the Bowman/Brown families and all those who loved Larry so very much. I know he will be missed as he blessed so many lives.
Cyn (Cross) Blackwell and family
We send our sincere sympathies to the Bowman family. Although we never had the honor of meeting Mr. Bowman, we heard of his love for his children and his grandchildren through you, our dear friends, Michelle and Dave. May God give you all peace and comfort in the days ahead. Someone once said that "time heals" when we lose a loved one, however with a parent perhaps "time helps" but we shall never totally heal from their loss because they were so greatly loved and greatly loved us! God bless.
I said good bye to you a very long week ago. For six years we had a special bond and I cherish the many memories. Love and strength to your wonderful family. I will always love you.
