Michael "Bo" Bowman was born on June 16, 1971 to Dorothy and Albert Bowman. He was the youngest of 5 and the apple of his mother's eye. Bo attended Midway High School graduating with the class of '89. Bo married Darbie never leaving each other's side for the 20 years that they were blessed to have each other. Bo had four beautiful children. Anyone who knew Bo, knows there was little left to doubt how he felt about his family, wife and children. Bo was Darbie's bestfriend, her soulmate, her partner and her first love. He ensured that neither Darbie nor his children ever wanted for love, devotion, a biggest fan or a shoulder to lean on when his hugs were not enough (which was seldom).
Taking the liberty of pulling some quotes from social media, giving a glimpse of Bo's impact on his friends and the community, here are just a few of the hundreds of comments that the family wanted to share:
Bo was an amazing man, truly one of a kind, best singer, a good man with lot's of love, a good friend, a genuine man and there isn't many like him, loving dad and husband, biggest tiger fan, loud and boisterous, gentle, loved his family with a fierceness that only the creator himself can compare, one of the nicest people ever known, amazing man, give the shirt off his back to help you out, true to his beliefs and took care of those in need, kind and a friend to everyone, full of love and joy and God got him a good one, one of the best men I knew, best story teller, a supreme human being, a wonderful man that [he] looked up to and respected very much, peewee football in Heaven is gunna be awesome, a gentle giant with a heart filled with love and joy that has no comparisons, he helped so many, he made you feel like you were his best friend, everyone's life is better for knowing Bo, sooo loved, the nicest guy in town, his generosity, his smile, his kindness touched people we don't even know, we were brothers, I owe him the world.
This world is better for knowing Bo. Thanking God for letting us borrow one of his Angels if only for what seems a moment. Bo leaves behind his wife, his 4 children, his grandchild, sisters, brother, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and loved ones. Bo would want everyone to remember him for his love of God, his love of family, his love of country. And with that, Bo was able to radiate his love and joy of life with those who were blessed to know him. Those stories, songs, and belly laughs will be forever missed. But, the impact Bo has had on so many lives will be forever remembered. And in, the only voice that can give his life, Bo-
"Get you some!"
