David L. Bowman

David L. Bowman, age 75 of Rhinelander, passed away Monday, June 3, 2019, at his home. He was born Dec. 17, 1943, in Rensselaer, Ind., to Clarence and Virginia (Engle) Bowman.

David was a Marksman in the U.S. Army and served in Korea. He married Berniece Koepke and together they would raise their family of five daughters. David will be remembered for his strong faith in God and will be greatly missed by his family and friends who loved him very much. Among his interests, David loved the outdoors, enjoying hunting and fishing and also loved to ride his "trike". He was also known to play a mean game of cribbage.

David is survived by his wife, Berniece; his five daughters, Dawn Purcell, Chris (Paul) Parsons, Aimee (Jamie) Stafford, Virginia Bowman, and Betsy Bowman; nine grandchildren, Ali, Chelsey, Connie, Dana, Cheyenne, Seth, Cera, Elijah, and Abri; five great-grandchildren, Payton, Lily, Teresa, Harvey, and Thea; a brother, John Bowman; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a son-in-law, John Purcell; and two brothers, Richard and William.

Per David's request, cremation has taken place. Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414 / is assisting the family.
