DOUGLAS ROBERT BOWMAN

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our truly loved Doug Bowman, 75 on Friday January 21st, 2022.

Douglas Robert Bowman, son of Ivy and Allan Bowman, was born July 26th, 1946 in the county of York in England. He immigrated to Canada when he was a small child. After he became a citizen, there was no prouder Canadian than Doug.

Doug worked as a registered mail clerk at Canada Post for 30 years until his retirement.

He is predeceased by his beloved wife and soulmate, Shirley Bowman (King), who he met when he was 13. They were together from then on until her death in 2017, and are now together again forever.

He leaves behind to mourn, his younger Sister Marie “Meme” Hallson (Bowman), his Brother-in-law Jack King (Jan Presley), his Niece Shannon (Geoff) Zywina, Nephew Sean King (Crystal Laborero), Niece Annie Hallson (Mike Cousins) his Fur baby and best friend Buttercup Bowman, and his pride and joy great nieces and nephew, Kyra (Houston) and Caelin King, Montana and Madison Laborero, Signe and Kate Zywina, Avery Unger and Sebastian and Ali Cousins.

Doug was a unique, fun-loving, stubborn and generous man with a love for nature, animals, the colour neon green, everything Canadiana, his TV and above all else, his family.

He never failed to put a smile on our faces or to make us laugh. He will forever live on in our hearts and memories as that big kid “Dougie” who got more toys on his birthdays than any of the kids.

We love you eternally (Uncle) Doug. We will always miss you, but are all happy knowing that you are with (Auntie) Shirley once again.

A private family celebration of life will take place at a future date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the Winnipeg Humane Society.
