William Owen Obituary
Hank passed away at UCLA on Sunday from a short but very brave fight with cancer. He was part of a special birth, "Twins"; Hank and Mary were born to Mark and Judy Owen in Clinton, Iowa. After moving to Bakersfield during high school, he met his one and only, Carol Wright. During their marriage of 34 years, their daughter, Lea Marie Owen, was born, his second love. He became part of another family that grew to love him as their own. Hank was preceded in death by a man who loved him and treated him like a son: His father-in-law, Jack Wright.
Hank is survived by his wife, Carol Owen; daughter, Lea Owen; his sister, Mary and Duane Thompson; niece, Jennifer; nephew, Steven and Krystal; his mother and father, Mark and Judy Owen; his brother, Phillip Owen; and sister, Frances Owen; his sister-in-law, Cynthia and Tommy Laughlin; niece, Kristy and Russell Laughlin; niece, Sarah and Delfino Romero; niece Danyel and Randy Carey; his great-nieces, Revay, Asia, and Taylor; great-nephews, Austin, Koby, Tucker, and Derek. Hank was a loving family man, friend to all, strong and unselfish. He would give not only what he had, but himself to anyone who needed help. He enjoyed football (49ers) and going fishing, and among other things, working; he couldn't stay busy enough. He fought to the end to stay here with us harder than anyone will ever understand. Hank loved life.
