J. Artie Bowersox

Brewing executive

J. Artie Bowersox, retired vice president of operations for the National Brewing Co., died Friday of injuries suffered in a fall while vacationing in Ocean City. He was 75.

From 1953 until he retired in 1983, he worked for National on O'Donnell Street in Highlandtown, first in technical capacities and later as vice president of operations, beginning in 1970.

During World War II, he served in the Army, first with the Army War Show, an entertainment group that traveled around the country, selling War Bonds, and later in rocket development at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

The rocket program was demobilized at the end of the war.

In 1951, he was recalled to active duty during the Korean War and conducted cold weather testing of Army equipment in North Dakota and Fort Churchill, Canada. During the summer months, he was assigned to the Fort Huachuca Military Reservation in Arizona to test equipment under hot weather conditions. He left the service with the rank of major in late 1952.

He was born in New York City but moved with his family to Baltimore as an infant.

He later took the "A" course at the Polytechnic Institute, which enabled him to take mechanical engineering course at the Johns Hopkins University, where he earned his degree in three years.

He was a member of the Hopkins Club, the Loch Raven Village Association and later the Pot Spring Community Association.

He was a lifelong member of St. Matthew's United Church of Christ, 2320 Mayfield Ave. in Baltimore.

His hobbies included fishing and gardening.

He and his wife, the former Mary Louise Pacy, celebrated their 50th anniversary in February.

Services were to be held at 11 a.m. today at the Dulaney Valley Home of Lemmon-Mitchell-Wiedefeld, 10 W. Padonia Road, Timonium.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a daughter, Martha P. Austin of Bozman; a son, J. A. Bowersox Jr. of Washington Grove; a brother, John K. Bowersox of Bethesda; and four granddaughters.

The family suggested memorial contributions to St. Matthew's Church.
