Lawrence ( Larry) Bowen
The Guest Book is expired.
On Monday April 15th , God decided that He needed one more guitar picker in his band and called Lar home.
Lar was born in Ely, Nevada in 1944 and grew up in Mc Gill, the son of Casey and Anne Sertic Bowen. He was preceded in death by them and his sister Linda Bowen Carson. Lar is survived by his partner Vicky Schliem; son Casey Bowen and his mother Judy Bowen; and daughter Chloe` Bowen and her mother Barbara Schwartz; and by Ron Bowen and his wife Renee Bowen.
Lar was an Army veteran of Viet Nam before returning home to spend a 30-year career in the service of others as a Social Worker for the State of Nevada. He was devoted to the people he served.
He was a good and honorable man, quick-witted, a fantastic store teller and a great front porch picker. He was a loving father, brother, generous and always helpful to family and friends alike. An avid outdoorsman, Lar loved the Nevada back country and cherished his cats.
Lar's wishes were for no funeral services. Rather he requested a celebration of life which will be scheduled later in the summer. Further, he asked that any donations be made in his memory to Special Olympics.
