November 04, 1990

Services for Paul Charles Bowen, an assistant supervisor in the mailroom of The Baltimore Sun, will be held at 11 a.m tomorrow at the Moran Ashton Funeral Home, 3000 E. Baltimore St.

Mr. Bowen, who was 64 and lived on Fayette Street in Highlandtown, died of cancer Thursday at the Mercy Medical Center.

He began his newspaper career in 1953 as a printer at the News American, remaining there until 1970 when he moved to The Baltimore Sun. After working for a time in the composing room, he became assistant labor relations manager, a job he held for about 10 years before moving to the mailroom in 1984.

Born in Pittsburgh, he came to the Baltimore area as a child and lived in Linthicum before moving to Highlandtown. He was a graduate of City College.

He served in the Army Corps of Engineers in Europe during World War II.

A member of the Glen Burnie Lodge of the Moose, he was especially fond of playing golf and of cooking.

He is survived by his wife, the former Sharon Marie Schanze; his mother, Anna Bowen of Linthicum; and two daughters, Cathy Beck and Robin Jesse; two sons, Daniel and Bruce Bowen; and a stepdaughter, Beth Ann Hannan, all of Baltimore; and five grandchildren.
