To Marion, Brian ,Louisa, Ken, Tim, Chris and Greg, and of course to all family and friends. We send our heartfelt condolences to you on the passing of Jeff, a very wonderful man.


A family man through and through.
A faithful hear so pure,
Filled with curiosity and wonder.

Always kind, and so very smart.

With a balanced mind, you helped put a torn world, to right.
Clever and kind in equal measure.
To all you know , a national treasure.

Your legacy is planted, it is rooted in love and pride.
In the hearts of your brilliant people, you leave for awhile.

So lovely Jeff, we celebrate your love and an amazing life.
As you reunite with loved ones gone before.
Whom we feel near.
Never far, always there!

To Marion and all the Bowe family holding you in our thoughts and prayer.

Love from,

It was a joy and privilege to know Jeff Bowe and all his family. Betty and my mother were friends from growing up in NYC. This connection allowed me to know Betty and Jeff and eventually. the wonderful Bowe children. My condolences to the family. I remember him and all the family fondly.

Wayne and I have fond memories of Mr. Bowe. All of the Bowe children baby sat for our son Mark at one time or another. When we moved from Geneva Road to Stratford Road we were neighbors again when he and Marion lived a few houses down from us. We'd exchange dog stories when I'd be out walking our dog.

I first met Uncle Jeff when I was 5 years old. I remember looking at him and thinking why did my Aunt bring him to our home. For Aunt Betty he was a keeper.

When I moved to Boston I lived with the Bowes. I was always impressed with Uncle Jeff's intelligence and his love of my favorite Aunt Betty and his children.

Through the years the Bowe and Limpert families shared wonderful times.

"Unc" I will miss you and our thought provoking conversations.

David and I were fortunate enough to know Jeff through Elaine, Tim, and Becca. Jeff was an easy conversationalist, sharing his knowledge on a myriad of topics. His progressive ideas and his energy belied his age. Mostly, Jeff was a kind and loving man who's first interest was his family. We feel very grateful to have known him and will miss his smile very much.
