Brian Bowes

February 27, 1948February 7, 2021

My Dad went to meet his maker in the night. The coldest night of the year, -50 with the wind. He smiled when I told him that. He met death on his own terms with enormous fortitude of will.

Brian was a bush man through and through. He was a teacher to many of us, bush knowledge that is hard to find. He will be greatly missed by many friends so close they were like family. He loved to hunt, fish, and drive the lake. He lived his life on his own terms, passionate about his views. He faced death the same way. Brian Bowes. Grandpa Bear. B. Friend, Brother, Dad.

Brian is survived by his Children: Arin (Joshua Rzepczynski) Bowes, and Adam (Amanda) Bowes. His Grandchildren: Drake Rzepczynski, Pandora Rzepczynski, Mavrik Rzepczynski, and Hudson Bowes. His Brothers: Richard (Carole) Bowes and Mark Bowes (Kathryn Cooper) and many other cousins nieces and nephews. Cremation has taken place and at Brian’s request there will be no service.

One of the finest handloaders, shootists, and hunters I have ever known. His love for the lake and the outdoors was only surpassed by his love for family and friends. He was a close friend and will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to Arin, Adam, and family... see ya on the other side B.

We are so saddened to hear about Brian’s death. He was one of the true authentic people I’ve known and was a major part of our Canadian experience for many years. Always smiling, happy to see you, always had a story or advice even when you didn’t want it ;). I often wondered how he did it but always happy to see him. Good luck Brian on your next adventure. We’ll miss you. To his family - we are sad for your loss but he will live on in your soul.
