BOWIS, John Wesley
John passed away on Thursday 23 December 2021 after losing his battle with cancer. Best friend and much-loved husband of Alison. Treasured and respected Dad of Simon and Campbell, friend to their partners Debbie and Anne-Carole, and dearly loved Pa to Max and Charlie. We are extremely proud of the way he coped with this terrible illness and of the person he was. We could not have asked for a better husband, father, friend and grandfather and he will be greatly missed, but his memory will be with us forever. We are extremely grateful for the wonderful care he received from the medical team at Whakatane Hospital and the love we have received from family and friends. A memorial celebration of John's life will be held on Friday 31 December 2021 at the Church of St George and St John Domain Road, Whakatane at 1.30pm. This is a vaccinated service; vaccine passes will be required to enter, however there is no limit on how many can attend.
