In Memory

Richard L. Bowers

Richard was one of ours.  I don't think he graduated with us, but was a friend from Farrer Jr High and at least our Sophomore year.   Wayne S. Clarke
The attached obit for Richard Bowers was in this morning's SL Tribune.  I don't know whether you have kept in contact with Richard, I haven't, but I thought you would be interested.  Didn't he own all of Elvis' records?

He had the greatest sense of humor and knew how to make even the toughest person laugh. He was a joy to everyone and such a ray of light.
