Obituary of Allan Stewart Bowie

Allan Stewart Bowie

(August 7, 1916 - August 11, 2021)


Allan Bowie was born to Ida and George Bowie on the family farm on August 7, 1916, the oldest of five children, and he was the last remaining descendent. 

Allan married Wilma Banta and were married in July 1941. They resided on his grandfather’s land and remained there until moving to Deer Meadows in Camrose in January of 2012. He was a lifetime Elks member (85 years) and President of the Drop-In for several years. 

He was an avid golfer and hardly ever missed a day at the “Double Dam” or the Drop-In for morning coffee. He enjoyed many years of travel be it being a “Snow-Bird” or enjoying many trips with the golf course crew. 
He enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles and playing cards at Deer Meadows until his eyesight went. He had and still has many dear friends there.

He was predeceased by his parents Ida and George; wife Wilma; brothers Charlie, Lloyd, and Lyle; and sister Bernice. He is survived by his children Grant (Judy) and Roger (Laurie); grandchildren Cindy Bowie, Todd Bowie, Patti (Darren) Drake, and Jim (Keri) Bowie; great-grandchildren Cody (Veronica) Bowie, Reggi (Matt) Oracheski, Robert Drake, and Kelly Drake; great-great-grandchildren Brooklyn Oracheski and Luke Oracheski; and two sisters-in-law Evaline and Phyllis. 

Rest in peace, Papa.
