(Memoriam)
BOWLES, James Russell (Russ) 1914 2006 Russ was born and lived the first
twenty years of his life north of Edmonton. In his early 20's Russ was
disillusioned about farming when his promising crop of wheat was hailed out.
He moved to Nelson, BC in the Kootenay Interior, and found employment as a
steelworker on the huge dams on the Columbia River. While thus employed,
Russ met and married Barbara Seal in Balfour, BC, a union that lasted for 66
years until Russ's death. Russ then moved to Rossland, BC, where he bought a
home and went to work in the Antimony Plant at Consolidated Mining and
Smelting in Trail, BC. While in Rossland, Russ's only child, his son, Bill
was born. The outbreak of war saw Russ enlisted in the ground crew of the R.
C. A. F. While in training at the Air Force base near Chatham, Ontario, Russ
contracted rheumatic fever and spent the war years flat on his back in the
Military Hospital in Ontario. Finally recovered, he found he would never be
allowed to go overseas, so he accepted demobilization. Russ found he had a
flair for sales, and spent most of his working life selling Insurance for
the Canada Life Assurance Company. Many a widow had reason to call down
blessings on his name. Russ moved his family to Kamloops, BC in 1946 to
favour his son's health, and they made thier home there for 37 years. In
1980 Russ moved to Nanaimo, BC to retire. Russ loved sports. He was a much
respected curler and golfer in both Kamloops and Nanaimo and brought home
many trophies. Russ died in Nanaimo in 2006, aged 92 years. Dearly loved and
sadly missed by his wife and son. 429417
