Floyd L. Bowman, age 81, of Aztec, N.M., died peacefully at home on Sept. 28. Floyd was born in Goodrich, Kan., and was a graduate of Parker High School. 

Floyd was an electrician by profession, who enjoyed 22 years of retirement as an avid amateur HAM radio operator (the go-to person). Floyd influenced many others to become HAM operators. He was an ARRL volunteer examiner, and very involved in the San Juan County EmComm. While living in Colorado, Floyd worked as a restoration carpenter; he did homeowner remodeling, was a trail cook for guided elk hunting trips, and worked for the Silverton, Colo., police department. 

Through the years Floyd had many hobbies: model railroading with scaled landscapes, indoor and outdoor gardening, raising rabbits and pigs, macramé, silversmithing, rock and mineral collecting, carpentry, woodcarving, making musical instruments, remodeling homes, home landscaping, fishing, square dancing, and homemade beer and wines.

A loving husband and father, Floyd was married 60 years to his wife Barbara Beemont Bowman. Together they have four children: Floyd (Charlene) Bowman Jr. of Gallup, N.M.; Rochelle (Troy) Dickerson of Hopkinsville, Ky.; Cowan (Heather) Bowman of Farmington, N.M.; and Gayla (Shawn) Oglesby of Owensboro, Ky. They have eight grandchildren: Paul, Angela, Carmen, William, Erik, Alexander, Myra and Noah. They also have eight great grandchildren.

Floyd is preceded in death by his parents Roy S. Bowman and Eva Shafer Bowman. 

There are four surviving siblings: Christina (Robert) Turner of Salina, Kan.; Everett Bowman of Garnett, Kan.; Carl (Alma) Bowman of Mound City, Kan.; and Keith Bowman of Union Gap, Wash.
