December 09, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A courier for Homestead Publishing Co. died yesterday when his station wagon was hit head-on while he was making deliveries near Aberdeen, state police said.

Charles J. Bowman, 66, of Upper Falls was traveling west on Route 156-Aldino Road shortly after 11 a.m. when a car crossed the center line and struck his car, state police said. The driver of the other car, Tracey L. Smith, 25, of Aberdeen, was not injured, police said.

Bowman worked part time for the past four years for Homestead, which publishes the Aegis and is owned by Times Mirror Co., publishers of The Sun. "He was very gregarious, joked around, and people liked him a lot," said John F. Patinella, president of Homestead. "We are all very saddened."

Police said an investigation was continuing.
