Curtis Malcolm Dowling, “Mike”, age of 82, entered Heavens gates on May 19, 2020 at 5:16 am. He was the husband of Mary “Jenelle” Dowling. They shared 52 years together, while traveling and experiencing a special love.

Born in Homosassa, Florida, he was the son of Curtis Dennis Dowling and Gladys Stirges. He attended Southern Poly Technical College and obtained a degree in Business Administration. He founded and established Benise-Dowling and Associates, Inc. with his work colleague, Paul Benise in 1978 where he served as the Secretary and Treasurer.

Mike was a member of The Church of the Apostles. He served the United States of America in the Army for 8 years. Mike enjoyed fishing and hunting. He will be remembered for his love of the Lord and evangelism, his family, his humor, and sharing his love of Jesus on canvas through art and his paintings.

He is survived by his wife, son, Curt Dowling, and his wife, Tanya Dowling. As well as his grandchildren Johnathan Hilley, and wife, Bailey, and Kerstin Jackson, and husband, Joshua. Mike also survived his two great grandchildren, Tinley and Skylar. He was predeceased by his son, Alan Dowling, and his brothers, James and Ralph Dowling.

Due to COVID19, a private memorial service to honor Mike’s life will be held at Arlington Memorial Park with the assistance of H M Patterson Oglethorpe.

In all, his family and friends believe that the bible verse of Matthew 5:16 is a reminder of Mike and his heart for sharing the gospel. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.”

Mike and Jenelle were my in laws for 10 years. I have such wonderful memories of them both.
I always felt Mike had the biggest heart. He had such a genuineness about him that instantly made you feel comfortable to around him. He was so kind and loving and I admired the love that was shared between he and Jenelle.
My favorite memories are of Mike cooking with his apron on and helping Jenelle make lovely meals. Every holiday and Sunday meals were something special.

He had a wonderful laugh and was just truly a kind soul who adored his wife, Mother and his sons. He was such a wonderful family man. His light shone so brightly.

Much love to all of the family.

Peace be with you-
Michelle Miller
