Larry Dean Bowlin, son of Lawrence and Mary Elizabeth Ann (Rogers) Bowlin, was born on Wednesday, March 29, 1961 in Clear Lake, Iowa. As a child Larry moved around between Iowa and Minnesota before he and his father settled in Lakefield, Minnesota, in 1974. During high school Larry ran track and played football. Larry graduated from Lakefield High School. During high school he cooked at the country club in Lakefield, which led to his passion for cooking. After graduating he enlisted in the National Guard. After returning from the guards Larry moved to Missouri. Larry was blessed with two children Lawrence and Maggie. Larry passed away suddenly on Saturday, September 29, 2019 at the Sanford Jackson Medical Center in Jackson at the age of 58 years, 5 months, and 29 days.
Larry loved to travel back to Minnesota to visit his friends and the old stomping ground whenever he had the chance. Larry was a true Vikings fan. He would never miss watching a game and the family was always wearing their purple. If the Vikings were not doing so well, Larry was known for putting all of his Vikings gear into a “time out” down in the basement closet. During the football off season you could find him out on the golf course playing a friendly but strategic round of golf with his buddies and later a game of cards in the clubhouse. Larry also enjoyed fishing and hunting deer and squirrel. He thrived on cooking up his finds for his family and friends. Larry will always be remembered for his smile, stories, and good cooking. Those that were fortunate to be a part of Larry’s life are truly blessed.
Larry is survived by his son Lawrence of Lebanon, Missouri; his daughter Maggie of Lebanon Missouri; his sister Lorrie (Mike) Hopper of Liberty, Missouri; several nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews.
Larry is preceded in death by his parents and brother Michael Scott Bowlin.
Blessed be the memory of Larry Dean Bowlin.
