Johnnie Charles Bowie, 75, passed away Nov. 6, 2020, in Hamilton.

Mr. Bowie was born in Dallas Oct. 22, 1945, to parents Loren and Doris Bowie.

Grandparents were Loren Howard and Louise Bowie of Dallas, and John and Edrie Reed of Dallas.

He graduated from Kimball High School in Dallas in 1964 and continued his education in Denton at the University of North Texas with a degree in Secondary Education and a degree in Interior Design. He worked in Houston with the University of Houston in the design field for several years. He then worked in Galveston with the University of Texas at Galveston in design and architectural restoration of several historic homes.

Johnnie has maintained a home in Calumet, Michigan, where he loved to spend summers with dear friends David and Diane Kesanan, Jan Johnson and Steve O’Dell.

In 2016, he moved back to Texas and built a home on the ranch of his beloved nephew, Morris and Gay Padgett in Gatesville, where he lived until health conditions determined he should join his sisters Buckie and Cheryle in Hamilton.

Survivors include sisters Buckie Pate and Cheryle Shable of Hamilton; beloved aunt Mrs. Wm H. Bowie (Betty) of Dallas; cousins John Reed III and Sherri Reed of Dallas; nephews Morris and Gay Padgett of Gatesville, Steven and Megan Padgett of Las Vegas, Nevada, and David and Kerri Gorman of Plano; niece Jennifer and Kelly Ralls of Haslet; grandnieces Paige Hargrove, Alexandra English, Caitlyn English, Ashley Padgett, Clair Padgett, Ashlee Donahoo, Olivia Gorman, Sydney English, Erin Padgett, Kate Gorman and Alexandra Ralls; and grandnephew Tyler Donahoo.

The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to Solaris Hospice of Hamilton for their loving care of Johnnie in his final days. We appreciate the love and support of local friends during this difficult time.
