Eulogy by Nancy Love
Steve brought to mind so many movies like:
"Love is a many splendid thing"
Steven loved life, his family, friends, and work.
What Steven loved most however was his wife Jeri.
Steve and Jeri were a team and a true love story.
Completely devoted to each other and their families,
friends, and work.
Movies like "Superman, Ghostbusters and Julia Child”,
come to mind: Stephen was "Superman" there wasn't a project
that he wouldn't or couldn't tackle. When a problem occurred (usually
in the middle of the night!), you could count on Steve to be there.
Now who are we going to call?
Steve was as talented with a spatula in the kitchen as he was with a hammer,
wrench, or widget.
So many friends, so much talent, so many tears, so much love left behind.
Steven Eugene Bowers you will be missed but not ever forgotten.
