He was the husband of Wanda Lloyd Bowles for 51 years.
Born October 14, 1948 in Franklin County, VA, he was a son of the late Lewis Franklin and Ruby Gregory Bowles.

He never met a stranger and always loved a good joke. “The most generous persons are those who give silently without hope of praise or reward,” by Carol Ryrie Brink.
