HOPEWELL JUNCTION – Richard C. Bowers, 78, an area resident since 2015, died on July 7, 2020 at Vassar Brothers Medical Center, surrounded by his loved ones. He previously lived in Miami, FL and Chicago, IL.

Born in Cushing, Iowa on January 23, 1942, Richard was the son of the late Wayne and Wilma (McCleery) Bowers. He graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1964 and proudly served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War.

Richard was a licensed real estate agent in Fl. He enjoyed reading, traveling (visiting all seven continents), photography, ice cream, and was talented at gardening (especially growing orchids).

He will be dearly missed by his wife of 34 years, Challis (Lowe) Bowers, his children, David Bowers (Nora) of Grayslake, IL, Candice Swift (Patrick) of Hopewell Junction, and Daphne Lowe of Key Largo, FL, his beloved grandchildren, Ryan and Allison Bowers, Sadie Swift and her four siblings - Cameron, Peyton, Annika and Damon. He is also survived by his step mother Millie, his siblings, Michael Bowers (Jean) and Judy Stevens (Bob), and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Richard was predeceased by his daughter, Dawn Elizabeth Bowers, in 1999.
