Obituary- Troy Evan Bowser

Services celebrating his life will take place Thursday, Sept. 20 for Troy Evan Bowser, who died Sept. 16, 2001, at Glenbrook, Nev. He was 55.

Mr. Bowser was born Sept. 28, 1945, at Hayward, Calif., to Evan H. and Nora Bowser. He spent his elementary and high school years in Elk Grove, Calif. After graduation from Elk Grove High School in 1963 he moved to Lake Tahoe, where he had made his home ever since. Troy and his brother, Clyde, started a new business at Lake Tahoe called Sierra Homeowner Services. The business sold in 1970 at which time Mr. Bowser became a Realtor. He started Bowser Realty at Zephyr Cove in 1978, which he operated until he sold his business to Coldwell Banker/Village Realty in 1998. He continued to work in the business as a real estate agent and broker until his demise. He had a real appreciation for the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe and a great concern for the environmental protection of the Lake Tahoe Basin.

Mr. Bowser had been a very popular member of Edgewood Tahoe Men’s Golf Club for the past 26 years and had won the prestigious annual Edgewood Men’s Club Championship on two different occasions, in addition to winning numerous other golf tournaments. He also had been a member of the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club.

Survivors include his daughter, Megan Murray of Santa Barbara, Calif.; sister, Gail Dewberry of Woodland, Calif.; brother, Clyde Billman of Reno, Nev.; several nieces and nephews and many, many good friends.

His family wishes to thank his many good friends and particularly Stacy and Jeff Dingman for their extraordinary care and concern.

Services celebrating his life will take place at 10 a.m. Sept. 20 at Edgewood Tahoe.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations in Mr. Bowser’s memory be made to Edgewood Junior Golf Program, P.O. Box 5400, Stateline, NV 89449.
