73, passed away Tuesday, May 24, 2022 in Norfolk, Virginia. Condolences may be left for William’s family below.
God bless William A Bowie (Bill) and join him in a heavenly reunion with his beloved mother. Raised primarily in Bowie Maryland, he worked for England Laboratories and Wineland Theatres during his career. His primary responsibility though was taking care of his mother Mary Jane, whom he loved dearly, until her passing. Bill enjoyed a passion for automobiles his entire life, and loved to share a funny story or joke.
In his final year, Bill was stricken while traveling to Virginia Beach to visit close friends, and spent the remainder of his life fighting to recover in a strange and unfamiliar environment.
William Arthur (Bill) Bowie was a fine and generous soul for his entire life. He was often treated as a miscast due to his large frame and stutter, but endeavored to see the best in people and treat them with respect. He was truly one of God’s blessings in the world.
If this is the Bill Bowie who lived on Gill Court in Virginia Beach in the mid seventies, he and I were neighbors when we were both very young men. He was a great neighbor and a kind and caring person. I know that if there is a heaven, Bill will be there. My condolences to his family.
May he rest in peace🙏
