Donald Curtiss Bowman was born October 15, 1947 in Adak, Alaska to Victor Clyde Bowman and Madelyn Blanche Bowman (Behler).

Donald joined the service in 1965 and served his country honorably. He earned the Air Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal with 5 Campaign Stars and several other medals and badges. He flew helicopters during his time in Vietnam and left the service at the close down of the conflict with a rank of CW2.

After returning stateside, Donald flew helicopters and fixed-wing for local companies for several years before opening his own auto repair business, where he not only worked on his customers' vehicles, but also built race engines. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, riding his Harley and being outdoors in general.
Donald passed away at home on July 21, 2017 after a long battle with cancer and other illnesses caused by Agent Orange, which he was exposed to in Vietnam.

Donald is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Cheryl Bowman; a son, Victor M. Bowman and his wife, Carolyn; a daughter, Stephanie Bowman; two sisters, Valerie Hawthorne and her husband Robert Dimps Hawthorne and Judy Prutzman; two nieces, Brooklyn Ashleigh Castillo (Costillo) and her husband Edgar Castillo and Sierra Timbre Bilous (Costillo) and her husband Steve Bilous. He is also survived by his nieces' children Bodhi Julian Castillo, Isabella Marina Lynn Bilous and Camilla Aurora Ann Bilous; two grandchildren, Jessica Bowman and Jacob Bowman, daughter-in-law, Tracy Bell Bowman, several relatives and many friends, including the large Blue Star/Joker family.
