George was born on May 24,1947 in Seattle, Washington to Eugene Bowen Sr. and Eddie Will. He proudly graduated from Garfield High School in 1963, joined the military as a Marine and continued to Cosmetology school at Seattle Central Community College. Following family tradition, George began working for Burlington Northern Santa Fe as a Switchmen / Brakemen / Conductor where he retired after over 30 years. That legacy was continued with the many who followed in his footsteps. He loved hosting family events and was the glue that held our family together. He was a mentor to many. His children, friends, and co-workers remember George as a hard- working man who was dedicated to providing for his family. George loved watching college basketball, especially during March Madness, while listening to the sounds of his favourite music on the stereo.
