Roy Bowen, 74, passed away peacefully with family by his side on June 28th, 2017. He died of natural causes. Roy was the owner of Bowen's Barber Shop for over 20yrs. He was the heart and soul of the barber shop. He had an uncanny ability to touch everyone around him with his sense of humor, his smile and his big heart. Roy was a daily fixture in the shop – he loved to sit in his favorite chair, reading the newspaper and doing his crossword puzzles.

Roy is survived by his mother: Claire Hill, and his children: Christine Davidson (her husband Rob and daughter Marissa), Barry Bowen (and Lorraine) and Roy H. Bowen, Jr. (deceased and his daughter Tristan). Other family members: John and Linda Bowen, Tracey Bowen Tobin and James Tobin, Scott Bowen and Sonia Coplin, Adam and Danielle Bowen. Roy was a loving uncle to his grandnieces and nephews Sydney & Khloe Tobin and Nicholas, Mila and James Bowen.

Relatives and friends are invited to celebrate Roy's life on Wednesday, July 5th, from 6pm-8pm at Swartz-Givnish Funeral Home located at 323 Washington Ave. Newtown. Roy was a veteran of the United States Navy and will be buried at the Washington Crossing National Cemetery on Thursday, July 6th at 9:30am located at 830 Highland Rd., Newtown, PA 18940.
