Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

On Monday, January 14, 2019, Randy Allen Bowman, loving husband, father, and friend, passed away suddenly at the age of 63.

An avid outdoorsman, Randy enjoyed hunting, fishing, tinkering on his John Deere lawnmower and spoiling his two dachshunds. Randy was a jack of all trades, and always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. He could fix your car, replumb your bathroom, and make a mean spaghetti sauce from scratch. It didn’t matter what you needed, Randy always had the name of someone who could help you with that on the tip of his tongue, and would start making a call before you knew what was happening. 

He is survived by his wife, Jayne Bowman; mother, Lila Bowman; children, Georgia (Joel) Taylor and John (Kristin) Taylor; brother, Ron Bowman, sister Ronnie (Jon) Stout; six grandchildren, Lillian, Seraphime, Simon, Liam, Winry, and Arjen; niece, Beverly; nephews, Chad, Adam, and Eric; along numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceded in death by his father, Donald Bowman.

A Memorial service will be held for Randy on Saturday, January 26th at 2 p.m., at the Solon Center Wesleyan Church, 15671 Algoma Avenue, Cedar Springs, 49319.

Arrangements are entrusted to Michigan Cremation & Funeral Care, Grand Rapids.

    I remember Randy always listening to Put another log on the fire and taking us to what he called the end of the world while telling us stories.

    Randy was a great friend, the kind you didn’t have to see everyday but as the years separated us we were always friends. When you were in a bind he seemed to show up out of nowhere to help, capable of most anything. I will miss him dearly,,,, RIP
