Jeff Bower

NNJR is sad to report that we lost a member.

Jeff, of Chester, N.Y., passed away on June 21, 2013 at Lime Rock Park during his regional race. Jeff was 70. Jeff was a long time member joining SCCA in 1990. He was an active driver as well as crew member.

Jeff drove an immaculate Caldwell Formula Vee.

Saturdays Missing Man pace lap in Jeff's memory really stirred a lot of emotion with drivers and clearly on the flag stations.

It was an honor to know Jeff. He is quite the gentleman and would always take time to chat. God bless.

Obit:

Jeffrey L. Bower was killed in a Formula V racing accident at Lime Rock Park in Salisbury, Conn., on Friday, June 21, 2013. Automobile racing had been his lifelong passion and avocation. He had competed in races throughout the northeastern U.S., notably at Lime Rock, Conn.; Watkins Glen, N.Y.; and Pocono Raceway, Pa.

Mr. Bower, a resident of Chester, N.Y., was 70 years old. He was plant manager for Belwood Aromatics in Ringwood, N.J.

Mr. Bower was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the son of Eleanor Cornell Bower and Dr. Ernest Z. Bower Jr. He spent his childhood in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, and was a graduate of Abington Heights High School, Keystone Junior College and earned an engineering degree at Farleigh Dickinson University.

He is survived by his older brother, Ernest Z. Bower III of Lilburn, Ga.; and younger sister, Lisa Cornell Bower of San Francisco; he was the father of Jeffrey L. Bower Jr., Janette Lisa Bower and Cindi Williams Sinaird; and the grandfather of Pyper Dillow-Bower, Perle Victoria James and Noah Herndon. Funeral services will be private and at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions may be made to a worthy cause dear to the hearts of the donors.
