Kenneth T. Bower

February 25, 1953 — January 24, 2023


Kenneth T. Bower, age 69, born in Rochester, NY on February 25, 1953, passed away unexpectedly on January 24, 2023. Preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Regina Bower, and father-in-law, Rumaldo E. Armijo. Ken is survived by his wife, Victoria Armijo Bower, his children Todd and Ashlee Bower, Robert and Kelly Bower, Celeste and Chris Travelstead, Russell Bower, his seven grandchildren, Cole, Grace, Avery, Miles, Lainey, Brody and Ryan, siblings Steven (Gloria) Bower, Timothy, Michael, Peter, Richard, Suzanne (David) Zelinski and Joanne.  In addition, extended family includes his mother-in-law Victoriana Armijo, Rosie (David) Yee, Rumaldo (Claudia) Armijo, Michael Armijo, Phillip (Tasha) Armijo, Lori Armijo and 5 nephews and 8 nieces.  

Ken was a self-made, hardworking husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and local business owner. Ken worked at Hunter Lumber, now Hunter-Bower Lumber, starting at the age of 17 in 1970 and bought the lumber company in 2010. Ken loved and supported his family and was known for always having a smile on his face. If there ever was a man of faith, hope, and charity, he was the epitome.  Ken will be immensely missed but will remain in our hearts forever. We have been blessed with his love and devotion, and for that we are grateful.
