Condolences to all the Owens family. So sorry to hear of Richie's death - I remember him well as a a child - He and Uncle Hugh worked closely with our dad, Dr. Graham Owens. Fond memories of all of them. Harold was our dentist too. So sorry to now hear of Mary's passing over two years ago. We had corresponded a little back in 2011 when she was working on the Owens Family Tree. Our thoughts and prayers with all of you, our cousins.

Dr. Owens and his family were our neighbors on 63rd St. when I was a small child in the 60's. My little friends and I were constantly ringing his doorbell whenever we fell down or 'hurt' ourselves while playing. His dear wife, Maxine, would usually let us in to be "examined" whenever he was home. Aw, it makes me smile to think back on his kindness. He had such a warm and caring presence. My sincere condolences to the Owens family.

Nancy, Mike, and Julie,
So sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of him and his great smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My condolences to the family. May the wonderful memories of your loved one comfort you until God's promises are fulfilled. Matthew 5:5

Dr. Owens was our family doctor while I was going up in Raytown. He was very kind and thoughtful. My mother could not say enough good things about him. I know he will be missed but I hope you are comforted by the fact he had very positive effect on many families in the Raytown community. May you feel God's presence in this time.

Nancy, Mike, and Julie, we are sad about Uncle Rich

Mike and family,
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

Mike, your dad was my Boy Scout merit badge counselor for first aid and I can remember how nervous I was when he took me back in his study to review what I had learned. I didn't think I would pass. It was the first real conversation I had with a physician wanting to know more about Medicine and how to help people that were hurt. He was so gentle, kind, and...

Nancy, Monica, Eric, Emily, Mike,
We are so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
