Mr. Bowers, husband of Margaret Small Bowers died Saturday, February 17, 2018. Born in Kershaw, he was the son of the late Luther Bowers and Nettie Bowers. He was a veteran of the Army and a retiree of DuPont. Mr. Bowers was a longtime member of DeKalb Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon and member of the church choir.

Mr. Bowers affectionately known as “BB” to his team members was a part of the 1998 USSSA National Championship church softball team but also won numerous awards and championships during his softball career. He passed the love of the game on to his family and touched many players with his knowledge as he coached and encouraged them long after he was unable to play. He also enjoyed bowling, gardening, and fishing. His greatest accomplishment in his life was the love of his family and was married to his sweetheart, Margaret for 72 years.
