Obituary for John (Jack) Joseph Bowden
Age 80 of Louisdale, passed away surrounded by the love of his family on March 4, 2018. Born in Halifax, he was the son of the late Edward and Margaret (Muise) Bowden. Jack is survived by the love of his life, Jessie (Boudreau) Bowden; daugthers Margaret and Karen; sons Derek and Michael; grandchildren Mandy, Courtney, Jonathan, Ceilidh, Brody, and Alexa; great grandchildren Rhylan, Peyton and Harper; brothers Henry Jim, Joey and Danny; sisters Mary and Joan He was predeceased by his sisters Shirley and Linda, brothers Edward and Gerald.
To many, he will be remembered as the little old man standing on the side of the road waiting for one of his many angels to pick him up and take him to his beloved, where he would sit for hours, hand in hand for the last 9 years at St. Anne's Centre.
Our eternal thanks to the staff of the Strait Richmond Hospital who somehow managed to fade out the complete chaos of their ER into a space of love, compassion and comfort for our family’s last moments with our Dad.
