Published in Salt Lake Tribune from May 29 to May 30, 2012

Surrounded by loving family our most precious, handsome son, brother, father, uncle and friend Charles B. Bowden (Chuck) passed from this life into eternity May 27, 2012. He now resides in God's Heaven.

Chuck was born in Murray, Utah on November 9, 1951 to Blaine and Angela Bowden. He was raised in Salt Lake City and graduated from Granite High School in 1970. He married Patti Anderson in September 1972 (later divorced). In junior high Chuck excelled in volleyball and basketball and was a record setting high jumper. While at Granite High he again excelled in football and baseball.

Baseball was his first passion and remained that way. Chuck was a member of the Granite Legion and Baseball 1969 State Champion team. He was co-captain of the baseball team that won the State Baseball Championship in 1970. He was selected American Legion All State Centerfield in 1970.

Chuck loved hunting and fishing, the Quaky Aspen trees and the mountains. He also loved old western and war movies. Chuck's daughter Lacey (Pumpkin Pie) was his pride and joy. He loved her with all his heart.

Chuck leaves behind his parents, daughter Lacey, brother Larry (Margo), sister Lauren (Claude), sister Farah (Bryon), sister Dyana (Jay), nieces Deena (Dave), Shannon, Lili and Ondrea. Nephews Griffin and Jude, special friend Anna Weidauer.

We want to thank the Shock/Trauma Unit at IMC Hospital and the Intermountain Homecare Hospice staff who took such wonderful care of our Chuck. And a special thank you to Pastor Ken Hornok and his wife Marcia for their loyalty, love and prayers through this difficult time.

Okay Chuck, now that you're an "Angel in the Outfield" PLAY BALL!!
