ROBERT (BOB) BOWEN 1929-2013 Bob's special sense of humour is now just a cherished memory. He passed peacefully on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 in Peterborough, surrounded by his family. Bob leaves behind his loving wife Barbara (MCCormick) and their children Paul, Tom and Janet (John Gennaro). Treasuring the memory of 'Poppy' are his grandchildren Laura, Natalie and Joseph. Bob was predeceased by his parents Gwendolyn and James, siblings, Merle, Fraser, Allan and Jack. He is survived by his twin sister Peg (McDonald) of Denver. Bob had a wonderful life that included a very successful career with Johnson & Johnson. With more connections than anyone could count, he says goodbye to the many neighbours and friends in Oshawa and Lakefield. The family extends their most heartfelt thanks to the Lakefield-Peterborough medical community for their outstanding care and compassion, especially the Palliative Care team at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre. Those wishing a final visit with Bob can join the family at THE HENDREN FUNERAL HOMES, LAKEFIELD CHAPEL, 66 Queen Street, Lakefield on Friday, June 21, 2013 from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A celebration of Bob's life will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. with a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in Douro. A reception following the Mass will be held in the Heritage Room of the Funeral Home. Family burial will take place at a later date in St. Joseph's Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Bob would appreciate donations to the Palliative Care Unit at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre where he spent his last days being comforted.
