He is survived by two daughters, Judy Kidd (John) of Broadway and Nancy Silvious (Ken) of Doylestown, PA; two sons, Danny Bowman (Barbara Nye) of Fannettsburg, PA and Tommy Bowman (Susan) of Edinburg; a sister, Margaret Bowman of Mt.

  8. Bill, Steve and I wish to extend our deepest condolences for your loss. Bev was a customer and a friend…so optimistic and full of life. We always enjoyed his visits. We laughed when he told us about his “growth spurt” of two inches when he had his knees replaced a few years ago. He was so hard-working…even this last year when dealing with cancer and carrying his oxygen tank around with him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Our thoughts are with you. Much love.
