Rising Sun, Maryland | Age 68


Woodford A. Bowe, Jr. (Woodie) of Rising Sun, MD peacefully passed at home on October 24, 2018 at age 68. He was born April 30, 1950 in Elkton, MD to Woodford and Marion Rebecca Bowe. Raised in Chesapeake City, MD, Woodie was a 1968 Bohemia Manor High School graduate. He served in the United States Navy from 1968 to 1974 as a radar electronics technician. Following the Navy, he worked at CDS Analytical, Inc. in Oxford, PA for forty-three years as a design engineer. Over the tenure of his career, he was awarded thirteen patents for designing and building chemical analysis equipment.
He is survived by his wife of forty-six years, Nancy Bowe; two sons Woodford A. Bowe, III and wife Christine, Timothy S. Bowe and wife Lisa; his mother, Marion Rebecca Bowe; his sister Tammi Dionne and husband Rick of Tampa, FL; three grandchildren, Woodford IV, Courtney, and Zachary Bowe, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many close family. He is preceded in death by his father, Woodford A. Bowe and brother, Richard Bowe.
He loved boating, fishing, crabbing, electronics, and 3-D printing, sharing this love with his children, grandchildren, and close friends and family. His boat, Tide Chaser, brought him and family many years of happiness on the Chesapeake Bay.
Woodie is well known for his welcoming personality, his hospitality, and his big hugs. He especially loved spending time at his mother's house in Chesapeake City with nieces Angela Badgett and Allison Anderson. He will be missed greatly by a host of family, friends, and co-workers.
A memorial will occur at a later date.
