TJ was our neighbor (across the alley) for the last 24-years. Always a gentleman and a great neighbor. His smile and presence in our neighborhood will be greatly missed.

My father was probably the most positive person I've ever know, always upbeat.Never negative about his/our family circumstances. Whatever life threw at him he felt he could overcome it and prevail.He was never a "big talker" but a doer( he was also a lefty,so if you back-talked,watch out! ). Sometimes in his later years, his "can do spirit" exceeded his ability to do things but he would always adapt. Much to my chagrin! Over the last thirteen and a half years, I was able to deepen my understanding of him and enrich my life as well. With great gratitude and love I bid you goodnight!

childhood friends with t j when we both lived on Hickory street just off South Ervay in South Dallas during the late forties

WE PLAYED BASKETBALL FOR THE SALVATION ARMY AT COMPTON CITADEL

WE BOTH GRADUATED FROM CROZIER TECH HIGH SCHOOL IN 1948

WE BOTH WENT INTO THE MARINE CORP IN 1950 AND SERVED IN NORTH KOREA

HE WAS ROCK SOLID. HE NEVER WANTED TO CALL MUCH ATTENTION TO HIMSELF

VERY FEW PEOPLE KNEW HOW BADLY DAMAGED HIS FEET WERE FROM THE FROST BITE IN FROZEN CHOSEN

HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE ELITE "CHOSEN FEW " DALLAS CHAPTER.
I AM PROUD AND HONORED TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ASSIST HIM IN GETTING DISABILITY IN LATER LIFE FOR BADLY DAMAGED LIFE

I AM HONORED TO HAVE KNOWN TJ BOWEN
