Passed away into the loving hands of his Lord and Saviour on Friday, April 23, 2021, at the age of 48 as the result of an accident.

Beloved husband and best friend of Heather (Hoffman) Bowman of Elmira. Devoted and unconditionally loving father of Jaron, Danya and Karis. Precious son and son-in-law of Edwin and Nancy (Martin) Bowman of RR 1, Elmira, and Helena (McNeill) Hoffman and the late Allan Hoffman (2020) of Elmira.
