In Memoriam: John H. Bowman
Jean Hanna
Coquille, Oregon

John Bowman of Bandon, Ore., died October 31, 1993, at the age of 79, having lived in Coos County most of that time and leaving a living testimonial of several hundred rhododendrons and azaleas. John generously gave of his plants and knowledge of growing and propagating rhododendrons. He will be sorely missed - his gentle manner and easy, giving nature were an example for all who knew him. What better can a man do? John Bowman was a member of the Southwestern Oregon Chapter of the ARS.
