Douglas Keith Bowman
On May 9, 2023 our beloved son, brother, uncle and friend Douglas Keith Bowman passed away after a short battle with cancer. He leaves to mourn his passing, mother Christina Bowman, siblings Lorna (Raymond), Joyce, Barb (Larry), Marlin (Susan), and many nieces and nephews.
Keith was born in Winnipeg on September 15, 1958 and grew up in Selkirk. He was well known as a skilled heavy equipment operator and spent many of his younger years working out West, in Northern Canada, and most recent years here at home in Manitoba. Keith always loved the great outdoors - fishing, hunting and camping were his passion. He rarely turned down the opportunity to take someone out, and loved to watch as others succeeded in a good hunt or a great fishing day. He liked watching hockey, baseball and curling and was an avid gardener - he enjoyed the many flowers he and his mom planted at home. Keith loved to sit by the fire and enjoy a quiet evening and he especially loved spending time with his family. Annual gatherings were something he always looked forward to and his presence will be dearly missed.
Per Keith’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel in Selkirk, MB. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Keith’s name to Cancer Care Manitoba, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada or your local wildlife foundation.
