Timothy John Bowers, age 72, was called home by God on February 4, 2022, at 9:59 pm,

Timothy was born on May 30, 1949 in Lima, OH, to William and June (Burgoon) Bowers, both of whom preceded him in death. He graduated from Lima Central Catholic High School, and was a truck driver for many years until he retired in 2014. He had a passion for motorcycles and was the former vice president of the Lima chapter of the Barbarian Motorcycle Club, where he was affectionately known as “Abbott.” He loved automobiles of all kinds and particularly enjoyed auto racing and go kart racing. He enjoyed being in the great outdoors, especially when he was fishing and hunting. Above all else, Timothy loved his family. He always enjoyed any opportunity to spend time with his children and grandchild. Timothy was an exceptional man and will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know him.

Survivors include: former spouse, Melissa Bowers; children, Beth (Robbie) Sarchet and Brad Bowers; siblings, Jill Luke, and Amy (Rick) Engburg; grandchild, Allison Watkins; numerous nieces nephews across multiple generations; as well as his pet cat, Whisper.

Preceded in death by: parents, William Bowers and June Bowers; as well as sibling and siblings-in-law, Sue (Don) Engberg and Lynn Luke.

A public visitation will be held from 2:00 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 10, 2022 at the Chiles-Laman Funeral Homes Eastside Chapel, with a family led memorial service at 5:30 p.m. There will be no graveside service.
The family asks that visitors wear casual attire in Timothy’s honor. In Lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the family.
