Richard "Rick"  James Bowie

Rick J. Bowie, 69, a longtime resident of Salisbury, passed away on Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at his home, with his wife by his side, after a courageous battle with lung cancer.

Rick was born in Stamford, CT on March 29, 1952 the son of Edward B. and Eileen R. (Suk) Bowie.

Rick lit up the lives of so many, so when you look to the sky, look for the brightest star and you’ll see him. 

He leaves behind his wife and soul mate Carolyn (aka Cj) of 40 freakin’ years as well as son Marc, daughter-in-law Karen, their daughter Gabrielle and daughter Brittany, son-in-law Frank, their son Lennon.  He absolutely adored his family. 

He was the middle child of five.  Older brothers Skip and Ed, younger brother Bruce and sister Kathy.

For the past 30 years he was a DJ at weddings.  He felt he had the best job in the world.  His goal was to make everyone have a great time.  He was a member of Den Brae Golf Course for 20 years where he made many wonderful and crazy friends. For the past couple of years he worked at the Barn Store in town greeting everyone who walked in.  Earlier years he was a member of the Concord Racquet Club where he played tennis and strung racquets.  He was also an employee of Dean’s Carpet where he met his wife and still has many tried and true friends from that era.

Rick enjoyed flying his drone around the golf course, covered bridges and towers and was very proud of his drone videos.

He will be missed terribly by his family and all who knew him.

According to Rick's wishes there will not be any services held. Burial will take place at a later date.

To remember Rick in a special way, memorial donations may be made to the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery, 110 Daniel Webster Highway, Boscawen, NH 03303.
