Jon Bowling was a Martinsville police
officer, a volunteer firefighter, a
Marine. And during a moving service at
Patrick County High School... his
father described a determined son who
lived life to the fullest.



DARRELL BOWLING/JON BOWLING'S FATHER:
YOU COULD TWEAK HIM A LITTLE HERE AND
THERE, BUT I CAN TELL YOU HE WAS
HARD-HEADED ENOUGH HE WAS GOING TO DO
IT HIS WAY ANYWAY. AND HE DID IT THE
RIGHT WAY EVERY DAY. HE DID.



Jon Bowling had planned to follow in
his father's footsteps and join the
Virginia State Police.

In a room filled with officers from
many departments, Darrell Bowling
received a proclamation from Governor
Warner declaring his son an honorary
state trooper.




I KNOW THAT JOHN WAS TRULY AN
EXTRAORDINARY YOUNG MAN AND HIS
ACHIEVEMENTS SPEAK VOLUMES, VOLUMES
ABOUT HIS PERSONAL SELF DISCIPLINE, AND
HIS CONVICTIONS AND MOST OF ALL HIS
INTEGRITY.



Before the casket was carried to a
waiting hearse and emegency vehicles
lead the funeral procession to a family
cemetery, Darrell Bowling asked the
mourners to think of his son from time
to time, hold him close and love him,
because, he said Jonathan Williams
Bowling earned that.
