Jason Bowen

November 5, 1974 — March 26, 2015

40, of Kingston died suddenly Thursday, March 26, 2015 on the trails he loved near Grayling. He was born November 5, 1974 in Warren. Tom and Karen Princko raised Jason as their own in the South Lyon area.

Jason graduated from South Lyon High School in 1993. After graduating from High School Jason joined the U.S. Army serving in Texas. He worked for Numatics after his military service first in Wixom, then in Lapeer, now in Sandusky for the last 18 years currently as floor leader. Jason loved being outside. He was very adventurous. He recently began working on his own personal bucket list which included white water rafting, hiking, quad riding, camping, canoeing, zip lining, hiking a portion of the Appalachian Trail through the Blue Ridge Mountains and jumping off the Stratosphere building in Las Vegas. Jason would do anything for anyone. He was a very kind, pay it forward kind of person with no regard to himself.
