Jack Bowser

Russell “Jack” Bowser of Worden, Montana, passed away Wednesday May 9th at the age of 65. Funeral services are this evening (May 16th) and a memorial service will also be held at a later date in his home town of Worthington. His obituary included the following:

His one true love was his Appaloosa horses of which he had many National and World qualifiers over the years. He was a strong advocate for the breed that he loved for over 45 years and was a past president of the Montana Appaloosa Horse Club. His favorite time of the year was foaling season and waiting to see if it was a filly or horse colt and what the color pattern would be. He loved nothing better than to walk people out to the pasture and show them his horses, as everyone knew he always had top bloodlines.

In lieu of flowers, friends are asked to make a donation to the Jack Bowser Memorial Appaloosa Award fund. Memorials can be sent to 515 Cook Ave., Billings, MT 59101.

    Thank you for posting this. While I never knew Jack myself, from the way those who did spoke of him, the appaloosa world has lost a great asset with his passing.

    A great friend, person and one hell of a cowboy! Took the time to teach a Long Island boy the forgotten ways of what it meant to be a man in world of the west and horses 30 years ago. Jack I will always keep you in my prayers
