Thank you for everything you and aunt Kim have done for me for the last 16 years. I miss you greatly already.. no Sunday dinner or holidays will be the same without your laugh and you sleeping after every meal. Rest In Peace uncle Schon.

  • To the Bowmar family, I am very sorry for your loss. Think of all of you often and remember times we had when we were younger.

  • I had the pleasure of meeting Schon at my machine service training facility in Wisconsin back in March of 2018. Schon was a very personable guy and was always engaged in class. Very few technicians possess his level of humble expertise. Schon’s very presence and willingness to share his experiences, provided additional value to all the other techs. You don’t see talent like that everyday. Heaven’s machine fleet will run better than it ever has before. Please allow me to extend my sincerest condolences to Schon’s family, friends, and colleagues.

  • Bob and Mary, so sorry to hear of Schon. It just seems like yesterday we were all growing up together. Please know that Mom and Dad are thinking about you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Dear family,
    I am so sorry to hear the news. It always bothers me when students precede in passing on. The Bowmar family has made and continues to make its mark on the Big Walnut community. Heaven gained another angel.

  • Dear Todd and family, We are sorry for your loss. We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. God be with you, Keith and Jona Baer

  • To the Bowmar Family,
    Sorry for your Loss!
    Deepest Condolences,
    The Ebert, Phillips & Starkey Families.
