In Loving Memory
Bowers Andrew Downes passed away at the age of 70, peacefully with his family by his side at Ian Anderson House after a very brief battle with Cancer on Monday September 3, 2018.
He will be forever loved and remembered by his wife of 46 years Lynda Downes (nee McDonald), his daughters Sarah (Clinton), Colleen (Ed) and his grandchildren Olivia, Charlotte, Beatrice and Kyle. His brothers Phil (Julie), Ralph (Pauline) and brother-in-law John and his nieces and nephews will keep his memory alive with the retelling of stories of the many adventures he had throughout his life.
He was an avid golfer, trivia buff and accomplished Mason. He always enjoyed a good discussion on a variety of topics and sitting with friends and family over a nice meal or a glass of scotch. Andy loved his travels and enjoyed many road trips getting lost on the roads less travelled.
He will be remembered in the hearts of his friends and family near and far.
