Blessings to the wonderful family John left behind. His legacy will live on, here on earth, now that he is one of the saints in Heaven cheering you all on. I am sincerely sorry for your loss and pray that God will use this as a time to reflect, grow stronger and journey your lives to join him again someday. What a rejoicing moment that will be! Thank you Lord Jesus for John Owens and his beautiful loved ones as part of all of our lives.
I so remember Johnny being 'one of the nicest guys to play with'. His advice to me in our partner's game one day was "he usually found that if WE got a par and not more than a bogey, that we would do alright". I told John that I knew he would get the par, but I wasn't sure about me only getting a bogey. We always did alright!
To Bobby and the Owens family, sorry to hear of your loss of a great pilot, golfer, father, Grandfather and husband.
Dr. Joe Richardson, Myles Buhlig and your airport friends.

So sorry to hear of Mr. Owens' death. Love and sympathy to all the family.
My prayers are with you and your family. Your father was great inspiration to many young men. We are better today because of his influence. I hope God gives you all peace and comfort.
Our love and prayers go out to the Owens family. Mr. Owens was a great man and will be truly missed.
Grand, Mr. Owens was certainly Grand to Kentucky Golf. His presence fills Golf House Kentucky - photos, plaques, and tons of historical papers. Seems every GHK visitor has a John Owens story. So very glad he was able to attend the State Am dinner in his honor. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
I was fortunate enough to see Mr and Mrs Owens out at dinner just a few days ago.
It was my privilege to shake his hand and reflect on his contributions to the Lexington community and golf in Kentucky.
My sympathy goes out to all of his family.
Johnny was a true gentleman and will be missed by everyone who was lucky to have known him. Our love to all.
Mr. Owens exuded class. He was always a gentleman and exhibited professional characteristics that I try to emulate today. God's blessings on all the family.
Johnny was not only a great competitor in Golf and Life, but always a Gentleman! If you knew him, you knew truly the essence of Golf!
I am certain that Johnny did not remember me but as a young caddy at The Lexington Country Club in 1959 for some reason Johnny liked the way I caddied for him and he would often come to my home and pick me up and then bring me back home after he played ,, I knew then that Johnny was a remarkable man as well as a great player, I remember comparing Johnny to Bobby Jones and since I walked the fairways with him and watched him play the course with a masters touch,, I assumed he would make his mark as a Pro and I know if he had chosen that road he would have no doubt had been as well known today as Arnold Palmer and the other great Golfers of that Great Area,,, I am very sad to hear of his passing
Thinking of you with the best memories. Sad for your loss.
Tootsie, my condolences to you and your family. He was my mentor and more importantly a wonderful friend for many years.
