CSM Jackson R. (Jack) Bowman, U.S. Army retired, died March 19, 2013. He was born February 3, 1927, in Marfa, Texas, son of James Edward and Odalia Littleton Bowman, and grew up in Alpine, Texas. Jack served two tours in Korea, and one tour in Vietnam. Other assignments included Senior Infantry Instructor, ROTC at Rice University and LSU. During this time he also served as Notification Officer to families who had lost a loved one in Vietnam. Jack is a member of the First Baptist Church of San Antonio, served as an active deacon for many years, and taught Sunday school for 17 years. He was also a member of Chosen People Ministries, Sheriff's Assoc. of Texas, life member of Texas State Rifle Assoc., National Rifle Assoc., and Second Amendment Foundation. Late in his life when asked his proudest accomplishment, without hesitation he replied, "Being asked to be a deacon at First Baptist Church." Jack was a staunch believer in the Holy Bible, the American Way of Life, The Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights, especially the Second Amendment. He was concerned that if "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" is ever infringed, other rights of the people will soon be lost. He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters; a brother; and first wife, Ingeborg. Jack is survived by his devoted wife of 20 years, Frances Bowman; daughter, Faydale Curtice and husband, Glen, and their son, J.D. Curtice of Corpus Christi, Texas; stepson, Douglas Logsdon and wife, Debra, and their daughter, Journey of Bedford, Texas; several beloved cousins and many friends. The family will receive friends from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. Sunday, March 24, 2013 at Porter Loring North.
