Jerry Bowen - 1938-2019
July 16, 2019
It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we announce the passing away of Jerry Bowen, our friend and longtime volunteer at the Vacaville Heritage Council.
His enthusiasm and love for local history permeated throughout the community with hundreds of articles, photographs, lectures, TV appearances, and historic site tours. Our community is more informed and respectful of our heritage thanks to his countless hours of research.
His spirit will live on in the archives, his books, and our hearts.
We extend our deepest condolences to his family during this difficult time.
