My deepest condolences to the whole family. I thought very highly of Bill and Joy when I attended the Jackson Street church of Christ in Magnolia from 2005-2009 while a student at Southern Arkansas University. Bill and Joy loved God's word and wanted nothing but the truth taught. Earth's loss is Paradise's gain. Prayers for the family.

A great teacher and a great man, even if he did have me write 500 times " I will not chew gum in class". haha We would run into each other many times after graduation and I always enjoyed a good conversation with Mr. Gower. a friend since 1969. looking forward to seeing him again. Truly sorry for the families loss. Mike

Mr. Gowan was my favorite teacher in High School. He taught Shop in Magnolia HS and I learned alot under his instruction. He was an "old school teacher" passing on "old school instructions and values". I enjoyed every single minute talking to him both inside and outside the classroom. Sorry for your loss and may God be with your family in your time of grief.
