Carl D. Bowersox, 76, Montandon

— MONTANDON — Carl D. Bowersox, 76, of Montandon, lost his courageous 3½ year battle with cancer to enter into the arms of his savior, Jesus Christ and sit at the side of his Lord for eternal rest on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013, at his home surrounded by his loving family.  

He was born Nov. 11, 1937, in Winfield, a son of the late George and Mabel (Herb) Bowersox. He married Loretta (Conway Day) Bowersox and his death breaks a 24 year bond together.

Carl was an Army veteran and worked for many years at Pennsylvania House, Lewisburg.

He was a member of the former Vincent Memorial Chapel, Milton.

Carl loved wood crafting, bingo, playing cards and visiting his friends in the neighborhood for coffee.  He also enjoyed his daily visit with friends at the local garage. Carl especially loved family and friend gatherings which were many. He celebrated his 76th birthday with family and a party at Bonanza’s.  He was a kind, upbeat and caring person. He will be missed deeply by everyone who had the pleasure and honor to know him.

In addition to his wife, Carl is survived by one daughter and son-in-law, Cindy L. and Terry Long, of Montandon; two sons and daughters-in-law, Carl D. Jr. and Karen Bowersox, of Middleburg and Michael T. Bowersox, of Montandon and his fiancée, Lauren Thew; stepchildren, Stacy (Matt Risben) Yost, of Sunbury, William Yost, of Carlisle, Pamela (Brian) Young, of Montandon, Heather (Curt Heitzman) Guy, of White Deer, Ernest Day Jr., of Sunbury; one stepson-in-law, James George, of Sunbury; four sisters, Cora, of Harrisburg, Lena and George Conrad, of Milton;, Betty and Ken Chappell, of Milton and Irene Thompson, of Delaware; 15 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; a niece, Sonja (Shane) MacDonald, of Milton that he considered like a daughter, and many nieces and nephews.  

Carl was preceded in death by his first wife, June Y. (Catherman) Bowersox; and one brother, George Bowersox.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Brooks Funeral Home, 124 Main St., Watsontown with Pastor Butch Woolsey of the Mifflinburg Church of New Life, officiating. There will be no visitation.

Thank you to all the kind and caring nurses at the Knapper Clinic.

Memorial contributions in Carl’s memory may be made to the Oncology Department at the Knapper Clinic, 100 N. Academy Ave., Danville, PA 17822.
