  1. We will all miss Bill’s smile & joyfulness that he always showed to folks he interacted with. I am sure it had everything to do with joy in his Savior. Reflecting Jesus !!

  2. I was Bill’s mail carrier for over 20 years. Knocked on his door countless times with emergency issues that I needed his advice on.
    He was always willing to either come in person or give direction to help solve maladies that often occurred. He was a safe, friendly, and knowledgeable source of community service.

    Thank you, Bill

  3. I always enjoyed crossing paths with Mr. Bowers, inspecting for our Fire safety or just seeing him around town the conversation was always good.
    Men like Mr. Bowers make Lansing a great community!
    Thank you for the many years of service to us, God Bless.
