BILLY A. BOWDEN, SR. Billy A. "Bill" Bowden, Sr. (1941-2018), of Hampstead, NC, assumed his rightful seat at the Pearly Gates on Saturday evening, May 12, 2018. As always, Bill was surrounded by the love and light-hearted banter of his friends and family while maintaining both his legendary dignity and his sense of humor. Bill's career was entirely service-based. He was a proud Marine, a distinguished NC Highway Patrol Trooper, and a gentle guardian of security and decorum in the Lennon Federal Building, Wilmington, NC. Bill was preceded in death by his brother, Thomas E. Bowden. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Katherine Hogan Bowden of Hampstead, NC; his sons Billy Andrew "Drew" Bowden of Vanceboro, NC, and Mark Christopher "Chris" Bowden and wife, Loretta of Knightdale, NC; and his adored grandchildren, Carly, Elaina and Kailee. Visitation will be at Andrews Mortuary, Hampstead Chapel, from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Graveside services will be conducted at Oakwood Historical Cemetery in Raleigh, NC, at 12 Noon on Thursday, May 17, 2018.
