He is survived by a daughter, Karen Thompson of Lexington; a brother, James Bowers (Brenda) of Valhermoso Springs; seven sisters, Elizabeth Smith of Valhermoso Springs; Esther Brown of Lacey’s Spring, Betty Selby (Kenneth) of Decatur, Ruth Scott of Madison, Dorothy Owens (Richard) of Augusta, Ga., Mary Dixon (Thomas) of Meridianville and Jane Spriggs (Eric) of Ovieda, Fla.; three grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
