Russ Bowman

d. August 13

Russ Bowman passed away on Aug. 13, 2017, doing what he loved — boating on Lake LBJ. He was born in Monahans, Texas, in 1949 and moved to Austin to attend UT, where he received a degree in pharmacy. His love of adventure led him to travel the US, including Alaska. He returned to pharmacy and retired from Atkins after 10 years. Russ' charisma drew others instantly to him; helping anyone in need. He was a stranger to no one. He is loved fiercely by his family and will be missed by all.

He is survived by his wife, Christine; children: Erika, Aaron, Alyssa, Kelly and son-in-law, Curt; grandchildren: Braden, Miles and Margot; sister, Jan and brother-in-law, Jack. He was preceded in death by parents, Russell and Lacey, and brother Steve.

A private memorial for family will be held to celebrate his life.
