Bob's Brigade

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Robert [Bob] Clyde Bowers Jr., proud husband, father and grandfather passed away surrounded by loved ones on May 26, 2021 after a six-week battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He was 57.

Bob will be remembered for his devotion to his family. Family and friends will cherish the memory of his unique humor, kindness and his fun "bob-isms". Friends described Bob as someone who would give the shirt off his back to help anyone in need. 

Bob was a stubborn force of nature, determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he often mentioned. He was unendingly proud of Suzanne, his kids and grandkids.

Bob loved bluegrass music and could often be found attending music festivals in Bean Blossom, Indiana. He was an avid clock and gun collector. Anyone who knew Bob knew that he was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for.
