Gregory James Bowman

January 20, 1962 — March 21, 2022


Yadkinville-  Mr. Gregory James Bowman, 60, passed away peacefully at his home Monday, March 21, 2022.  He was born January 20, 1962 in Forsyth County to the late Jesse James and Lottie Jones Bowman.  Greg graduated from Edgewood Christian School, attended evening courses at Salem College, and retired from R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company with 40 years of service.  Greg had a passion for history, shared many history lessons that would make a professor proud, and enjoyed visiting historic sites, especially Civil War battlefields and Charleston, SC. He also enjoyed fishing, boating, cooking, food, fun, and trips with family and friends. He looked forward to good food and fellowship with friends and family at different restaurants. "Chef Greg" would often come back home to his kitchen after a fine meal, say "I can do that", and sure enough nail it his first attempt. He loved to share food and cooking tips. Above all, Greg lived to have fun, laugh, share, and love. He adored his family, loved his friends, never met a stranger, and was a happy "PaPa"!

  He was a loving, devoted, and funny husband, Dad, and Papa.  Surviving are his beloved wife of 22 years, Denise Livingston Bowman; son and daughter-in-law, Garrett and Tiffany Bowman; special grandson, Grant Bowman; brothers, Steve Bowman (Cheryl) and Ryan Bowman (Melissa); sister, Pat Roberts; Uncle Greg's "T" nieces and nephews, Kenneth, Patrick, Lauren, Kendall, Brandon, AJ, Carter, Drew, Makenna, and Delaney. 

  Greg was also survived by several other special family members, including Tyler, Patsy, Bruce, Teddy, Jimmy, Dish, Norman, Gerline, Hazel, James, Sandra, Scott, numerous cousins, extended family, and a multitude of friends.

  A Celebration of Life Service will be held for Greg 2:00-4:00PM on Sunday, April 3, 2022 at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC.
