STATESBORO, Ga. -- Mr. George Everette Bowen, Sr., age 80, died Thursday, June 5, 2014, at his residence following a brief illness. The Bulloch County native was a graduate of Marvin Pittman Laboratory School in Statesboro.

He was also stationed in various areas of the United States during his service. Upon his retirement, George began a 20-year career with Civil Service where he primarily worked at Hunter Army Air Field until his retirement in the mid '90s.
