Ronald Fredrick Bowman

November 8, 1958September 7, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Ronnie Bowman announce his sudden passing at home on September 7th, 2020 at the age of 61.

Beloved son and brother. Predeceased by older brother Albert LeGault and youngest sister “Cathie” Catharine Bowman. Survived by both parents Jean Bowman (nee Watmough) and Jim Bowman, sisters Laura Bobiak and Francine Doslea and nephews and nieces. He will be remembered warmly by his friends and extended family but especially his good friend of 14 years, Helena Eyles. The family asks that in lieu of flowers that you consider donations to the Cancer society, Wesley Urban Ministries or any addiction support charity.

He had a very difficult time breathing in the last couple of decades and worked hard at keeping his independence. His mother felt blessed to share her home with him the last few years and Ronnie felt great that he could help her when she needed it most, he wished he could do more. He spent every day that he could going to the Wesley Urban Ministries in downtown Hamilton. It gave him serenity and purpose through his life, and strength when he felt weak. When his life was easier he felt like he was paying it forward. He always spoke highly of the “Wesley House”, as did our family.

Cremation has already taken place and the family has chosen an outdoor service. Service is 11am on Thursday September 24th, 2020 at White Chapel Memorial Gardens, 1895 Main St West, Hamilton, ON L8S 4R7. All attending should follow Covid19 protocols which include wearing a mask and maintaining proper distancing. Names and phone numbers of all people in attendance will need to be collected, as per directives of the Bereavement Authority of Ontario. Please cooperate with all funeral home staff. The family thanks you.
