About Jay Bowen

Moses Jackson "Jay" Bowen III Visit Guest Book

Moses Jackson "Jay" Bowen III, 50, died Sunday, February 6, 2011 in Savannah. Jay was born in Statesboro and lived all of his life in Metter, where he attended the Metter Primitive Baptist Church. He was a graduate of David Emanuel Academy, class of '79. He was owner and operator of the Dairy Park for several years and also owned Jay's Fuel Stop, the first self-serve gas station in Metter. He enjoyed hunting, especially quail and dove, where he was known for his excellent marksmanship. Jay loved the trip to New York with his daughter, Jenny, and his hunting trip out west with his daughter Belle-Anne, never missing anything they were involved in. He made many friends at SCAD while working there as a floor covering contractor. He loved his girls, Jenny, Belle-Anne, Vicki and Patsy. Jay's big heart, for helping others, was as well known as his stature. He was preceded in death by his father, Jack Bowen. Survivors: his wife, Vicki Bowen; daughters, Jenny Bowen (Stephen Brantley), Belle-Anne Bowen; his mother, Patsy Bowen, all of Metter; sisters, Brenda Olliff (Danny) of Metter, Angel Hogue (Dennis), Patty Gosch (Kurt); sister-in-law, Judy Quinney; brother-in-law, Toby Roberts (Michele); 12 nieces and nine nephews. The funeral service will be Wednesday, February 9, 2011, at 3 p.m. at the Metter Primitive Baptist Church, with burial in the Lake Cemetery. Visitation will be Tuesday 4-8 p.m., also at the church. Pallbearers will be Brad Franklin, Gregg Franklin, Spud Bowen, Chip Bowen, Alan Thigpen, Kevin Davis, James Gibbs, Brigham Sanders, Norman Fries and Grant Hendricks. In lieu of flowers, the family requests remembrances to the Jay Bowen Scholarship Fund for Candler County Kids, P.O. Box 66, Metter, Georgia 30439; or charity of your choice. Kennedy-Morgan-Brannen Funeral Homes, Metter Chapel, is in charge of arrangements.
