Walter Bowers Obituary

Walter Ivon Bowers, age 94, went to be with his Lord and Savior on January 15, 2024.  Born April 2, 1929, in London, TX, Ivon and family settled in Junction, TX.  It was there that he met his wife, Lynda. His journey took him to Northern California, where he spent 45 years raising a family and becoming a successful business owner. Ivon was ordained into the ministry, officiating many weddings, and serving his church in many capacities.

In 2002, Ivon and Lynda moved to West Michigan to be closer to their children. He worked 15 years as a greeter for Meijer and was affectionately known as “The Meijer Guy”.  

Ivon was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Lynda (Allen) Bowers. Surviving are his two children, daughter Kristal and son in law David DeVries, son Matt Bowers, grandchildren Amy (DeVries) and Stephen Paul, Dylan and Kaitie DeVries, Mason Bowers, and great granddaughter Evelyn DeVries. 

A private burial service will be held January 22, at Ridgeview Memorial Gardens.  A celebration of Ivon’s life will be held at a future date.
