Jacob Oliver Bowen

Eastford- Jacob Oliver Bowen born May 3, 1995 passed away on January 3, 2018 in a motor vehicle accident.  He is survived by his loving parents Richard & Amy Bowen, his little brother and hero Caleb and his loving, supportive grandmothers Claire Williams ”Ama” and Deb Williams.

A hardworking, honest, kind-hearted, humorous young man who always wore a contagious smile.  He touched the lives of all who met and knew him.  A self-employed logger of Red Fern Logging, joined by his Redbone Coonhound, Annie.  An over the top work ethic rare to most but natural to Jacob.

A celebration of Jacob’s life will take place on January 14, 2018 at 2p.m. at Old Sturbridge Village, Sturbridge, MA, in the Meeting House.  Arrangements by Smith and Walker Funeral Home, Putnam, CT.
