Michael Leroy Bowman

Michael Bowman, 71, left this crazy world on Saturday, December 17, 2016 in St. Augustine, FL, surrounded by family. He was known as “Mike” to his friends and “Pops” by his grandkids. Mike was born September 25, 1945 in Ironton, Ohio to Elmer and Mary Bowman. He was full of heart from the beginning and dedicated much of his life to the United States Army. He served two tours in Vietnam and was awarded various honorable medals including the Purple Heart and Presidential metal. He loved his country and his family. Most days you could see Mike cruising the streets on his Harley visiting his favorite local spots. Mike will be missed by his wife, Kathleen Bowman and children, Ivy Bowman, Chad Bowman, Amanda Medford, Johnny Bowman, Michael Bowman and Angelina Taylor. “Pops” will also be leaving behind his 6 grandchildren, Sage Clarkson, Isiah Clarkson, Seth Bowman, Noah Doyle, Nallah Clarkson, Mya Doyle and great-grandson Josiah Clarkson. Those of you who know Mike, knows he would like to be remembered for his witty and sarcastic humor and although he will be greatly missed, the family believes they will have one hardcore angel by their side watching over them. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM on Friday, December 23, 2016 at Craig Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers family asked that donations be made to the Paralyzed Veterans Association.
