Obituary of Ronald Michael Bowers

Please share a memory of Ronald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.


Ronald Michael Bowers passed peacefully away on March, 2023 following a valiant battle with cancer.  He was 78 years old.  Ron was born in Washington D.C. on October 18, 1944 and was the youngest of seven children.  He spent 35 years in the printing industry there before moving to Maine in 1998, where he launched an incredibly successful business as an expert house painter, always in demand and with wonderfully loyal customers.  He and his wife Barb had a love of old houses and antiques, and renovated and restored five houses together.  They loved to entertain and surrounded themselves with friends who became family.  Ron would do anything for anybody, and had the biggest most generous heart.  He always went above and beyond, and touched so many many lives.

Ron is survived by his wife and the love of his life, Barb.  They were married for over 33 years.  He is also survived by his sister Phyllis Bowers; daughter Lori Simpson and husband Mike; son Ron Bowers Jr.; stepson Michael Foresta and wife Jen; stepson Matthew Foresta and wife Kirstie; 9 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.  He was pre-deceased by his son Daniel Bowers in 2020.  

Per his wishes, there will be no viewing or funeral.  There will be a gathering for friends to express condolences from 2 - 4 p.m. on March 12th at the 1812 Farm in Bristol, Maine.  All are welcome.
