Allen M. Bowe

Allen M. Bowe, age 58, of Chilton, passed away peacefully at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton. He was born August 11, 1960, son of Tom and Lorraine Bowe, in Stockbridge. He married Yvonne Daniels on October 28, 1995, in Hartford.

Allen worked at J&E Construction for eight years, and he was a payload operator and foreman at Michels Materials for 23 years. He liked playing with “big boy toys,” and he was proud to be a member of the Operating Engineers Local 139 Union. More than anything, he was proudest of his family and he is remembered as a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He put everyone’s happiness above his own and he loved spending time with his granddaughter, Peyton, and his dog, Lucky. He enjoyed woodworking and movies, and he liked motorcycling before he was married, but Yvonne decided he didn’t know how to drive so his bike days ended. Al loved grilling on his big green egg grill, experimenting with different seasonings and flavorings. He always said Yvonne “Danielsized” him because her family loved cooking and trying to improve recipes. Some of his favorite times were sitting on the deck with Yvonne, having a few drinks, and solving the world’s problems. 

Allen is survived by his wife, Yvonne; his parents, Tom and Lorraine; his daughter, Jessica (Kenneth) Pickart; granddaughter: Peyton; brothers: Andrew Bowe and Thomas (Jodi) Bowe, Jr.;  sister-in-law: Carol (Donald) Loew; and brothers-in-law: John (Ellen) Daniels, Ray Heimermann, Richard (Maura) Daniels, Joseph (Stephanie) Daniels, Jr., and Donald Ecker.

Allen was preceded in death by his sister: Joann Ecker; and sister-in-law: Joanne Heimermann. 

A funeral service is scheduled for 6:00pm on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton. Friends may call from 3:00pm to 6:00pm at the funeral home on the day of the service. 

The family would like to thank all the nurses, techs and staff , especially Dr. Zenebe for taking such good care of Al at St.  Elizabeth hospital.
