ALBERT RAE BOWERS
December 19, 1934 – August 9, 2018

Albert Bowers, of Coupeville, WA passed away peacefully at his home of Lewy Body Dementia with Parkinson’s Disease on Thursday, August 9, 2018 He was 83 years of age.

Al was born in Jonestown, PA, to David and Catharine (Sarle) Bowers on December 19, 1934. The family moved to Coupeville, where his Uncle Adam was stationed at Fort Casey, when Al was 9 years old. This move kept the boys out of the Pennsylvania coal mines. After graduating from Coupeville High School, Al served in the U.S. Army, attended Western Washington University, Ray of Hope Ministries in Canada and school in Israel. He worked for Island County Engineer, Marine Asphalt, and Lakeside Industries. In 1970, Al became a licensed state land surveyor and opened Bowers Land Surveying.

Al married Joan Goodell of Langley on June 29, 1968. Al and Joan were involved in ministry and with messianic congregations and traveled all over the world including Amsterdam, Israel, Canada, Mexico, and many parts of the United States.

Al loved to sing – even songs that he invented. He taught his daughters and grandchildren to use their imaginations and make up stories on their own. He was an incredibly loving father and grandfather and long known for his kindness. He will be missed, especially his smile, the twinkle in his blue eyes during his story telling… “Would you believe…”

Al was known for his community activities. He was a bowling champion with a mean hook! He and friend, David Stoddard started the salmon derby and Coupeville Festival. He was also involved in Coupeville politics speaking at community meetings about such topics as the transit.

Al leaves behind his wife, Joan, and four daughters: Kristen Sanger, Leah (Mike) Hoff, Dawn (Jack) Lui and Mellissa (Ed) Mathieson. Also surviving are 15 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, his sister, Mary Louise Lamas, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, David and Catharine Bowers, siblings Hannah Bainbridge, Pearl Seiger, George, and Joseph.

A celebration of life for Albert Bowers will be held on Sunday, October 7, 2018 at 3:00 pm, at the Living Hope Four Square Church in Coupeville, WA. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Wallin Funeral Home.

Memorials are suggested to the Hospice of the Northwest Foundation 227 Freeway Drive Suite A. Mt. Vernon 98273
