Emory Bowen, 88 years, 4 months, 24 days, fell asleep in death on Thursday, May 21, 2020 at his home in Cypress Inn, Tennessee with his family by his side. He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Dolores Bowen. He was a carpenter by trade but to those that knew and loved him, he was an organic gardener. He loved nature and the simple things in life. Most of all, he was an avid Bible student, he loved the Bible and his God, Jehovah, which as he learned to be God’s name, from his early study of the scriptures, (Psalm 83:18). He was confident in the Bible’s promise of a new heaven and paradise earth. He was one of Jehovah’s witnesses for over 70 years. Telling others about what he had learned from the scripture was his life-long goal. He is survived by one daughter, Susan Russell of Florence, AL; three sons, Forest Bowen and Mark Bowen, both of Cypress Inn, TN, and Perry Bowen of Sheffield, AL. In addition to those, he is survived by four grandchildren, one great-grandchild and many nieces, nephews and cousins, as well as many spiritual brothers and sisters.
