Rev. Frederick T. Bowling, 63, served in area parishes

The Rev. Frederick T. Bowling, a Baltimore native and Roman Catholic priest in the area since the 1960s, died Tuesday of a heart attack at Keswick Multi-Care Center. He was 63 and had been in failing health for 20 years, his family said.

Raised on Colorado Avenue, he was a graduate of SS. Philip and James Parochial School and a 1956 graduate of Loyola High School, where he won the University of Notre Dame Award as its top academic student.

He entered St. Charles Seminary in Catonsville, then studied theology at the American College of the University of Louvain in Belgium, where he was ordained a priest in 1964.

He was associate pastor at St. Joseph Church in Fullerton beginning that year and was subsequently assigned to St. Paul Church in Ellicott City, St. Matthew in Northwood and St. Thomas Aquinas in Hampden. In the 1970s, he taught religion at Garrison Forest School.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. today at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5200 N. Charles St.

He is survived by two brothers, Robert B. Bowling and John G. Bowling, both of Baltimore, and a nephew and niece.

Charles `Kip' Chapple Jr., 78, city teacher, principal

Charles A. "Kip" Chapple Jr., a retired city elementary school teacher and principal, died Saturday of lung cancer at Stella Maris Hospice in Timonium. He was 78 and had lived in Waverly for about 45 years.

Born in Baltimore, Mr. Chapple was a 1940 graduate of Mount St. Joseph High School and worked before entering military service during World War II. He was an Army Air Forces pilot in a bomber squadron in the Pacific and attained the rank of first lieutenant.

He earned his undergraduate degree in 1951 from what is now Towson University and a master's degree in 1956 from the University of Maryland -- both in education.

His career in city public school system began in 1950 and included teaching at Armistead Gardens, Roland Park, Montebello and Hampden elementaries, said a nephew, Charles Kanewske of Arnold. Mr. Chapple had been a principal at the William Fell School and was principal at General Wolfe Elementary when he retired in 1978.

Mr. Chapple was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Ancient Order of Hibernians. He was a volunteer for Boy Scout Troop 730, whose members are disabled. He enjoyed the theater, participating for many years in the Paint and Powder Club.

Until his recent illness, Mr. Chapple was a daily communicant of SS. Philip and James Roman Catholic Church, 2801 N. Charles St., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. today.

In addition to his nephew, he is survived by a sister, Agnes Kanewske of Lindale, Texas, and other nieces and nephews.
