GEORGE ARTHUR BOWEN

George Arthur Bowen

It is with great sorrow that the family of George Arthur Bowen announces his passing. After a mercifully brief but courageous battle with cancer George left us peacefully in the early morning hours of May 29, 2009 at the age of 67.

George is survived by his adoring wife Georgy, his sons David and Christopher (Katherine), and daughter Amy (Jason). His brother David and his wife Eve and their children, Chelsea and Alex. George was predeceased by his mother Mary and sister Lindsay.

George will be forever remembered by the many people whose lives he touched and purposefully enhanced.

Amongst George’s many accomplishments, too many to mention, his greatest achievement was to always put the considerations of others above his own regardless of the sacrifice. This has left a long trail of people whose lives have been greatly improved only because they knew him and learned from him. George will be deeply missed.

The quilt of our lives is stitched with intense love felt for you George. And will now be woven throughout with the great sadness of having to say goodbye.

An open house “celebration of life” will be held between 1 pm and 5 pm, Saturday, June 6, 2009 at the Bowen residence. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
