Ruben Lewis Bowers Jr. went to be with our heavenly father on the 7th of September, 2021.
Ruben, 46; was born on the 26th of April 1975 to Katherine and Ruben Bowers in Atlanta, Georgia. Ruben spent most of his life in Citrus County Florida where he was well loved throughout his community. Ruben grew to find his true calling as a loving father and husband. He loved his wife (marrying Sylvia in 2010), children and the Miami Dolphins all equally. He spent much of his free time taking his family to Kissimmee, FL or down by the water fishing.
Ruben is survived by his father, Ruben Bowers Sr., his beloved baby doll Sylvia, and their eight children, Candace age 26, her spouse David, Kayla age 26, Ruben age 25, Hope age 23, her spouse Chris, Taylor age 20, her spouse Brannan, Jai-Lynn age 14, Adrian age 11 and Ruben's best buddy Adam Jacob age 10, as well as his pride and joy grandson Levii Allen, 10 months. He greets the spirits of his mother, Katherine Bowers, and his father-in-law Jake Merger, as they help him receive his angel wings.
Ruben wanted nothing more than his children to succeed, to love and be loved, and to live in this world knowing he always had their backs. Ruben will be truly missed by many, though he may be gone, he will NEVER be forgotten. Brown Funeral Home & Crematory, Lecanto, FL in charge of cremation arrangements.
