Larry Don Bowers was born April 05, 1936, to Bernie and Irene (Weddingfeld) Bowers on a farm north of Winside. He graduated from Winside High School in 1954. Larry married Shirley Hampton June 18, 1955 at the United Methodist Church in Carroll. The couple lived in Omaha where Larry was a plumber for Union Pacific Railroad until 1957, when they moved to a farm near Truman, MN. They returned to farm near Winside in 1967. Larry was a member of the United Methodist Church in Winside where he served as an usher, Chairman of the Building Committee, and many other church committees. He enjoyed farming, camping, NASCAR, cards, the Huskers, and most of all his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Larry is survived by his wife, Shirley; their sons, Daniel (Teri) Bowers, Robert (Janice) Bowers, and Richard (June) Bowers, all of Winside; eleven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; siblings, Dennis (Lois) Bowers of Winside, Gary (Barbara) Bowers of Hartington, and Karen Hartmann of Winside; nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Bernie and Irene Bowers; brother-in-law, Owen “Tuffy” Hartmann; and parents-in-law, James and Maude Hampton.
