Thank you for paying tribute to the following individuals through a memorial gift.
Thomas Stanley Bowen of Indianapolis, died November 27, 2013. Tom was born in Dodgeville, Wisc., July 24, 1924. After serving in the Navy as a torpedoman first class on the USS Bennion, he attended Carleton College where he earned a BA in psychology in 1950. After graduation, Tom was the assistant director of admissions at Carleton College for five years. Next, he worked until retirement as a manufacturer’s representative for Dick Bigler Associates, Inc., of Goshen, IN. Tom was a member of Meridian Street Methodist Church.
Tom was an avid golfer, wood worker, bible student, opera buff, and birder. In 1989, he became legally blind. This change in circumstances led him to become a dedicated listener to books on tape and to work as a volunteer at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum. Tom enjoyed greeting and stamping the hands of thousands of children who visited the museum. Throughout his life, family and friends appreciated his wonderful sense of humor.
Tom’s survivors include his wife of 58 years, Mary Piatt Bowen; daughters Sarah Holloway of Montclair, Va., and Lucy Bowen McCauley of Arlington, Va.; his grandchildren, Emma Hopson and Daniel Creighton, both of New York City; his great-grandson, William Hopson; his sister, Alice Gibson of Lake Forest, Ill.; and his brothers, John Bowen of Eau Claire, Wisc., Bruce Bowe of Birmingham, Ala., and William Bowen of Rockford, Ill.
Terry has been a friend to Lucy almost since the inception of Bowen McCauley Dance (BMD) in 1996. He was supportive of Lucy’s participation in Arlington’s arts incubator program and always generous with advice and introductions that would strengthen the organization.
At BMD, we had a great appreciation for the value Terry saw in the arts and his commitment to the arts as an integral part of the economy.
Most importantly, we saw Terry as a friend. His kindness, guidance, wisdom, and friendship will be greatly missed.
