James Bow

HN.8.14.14.obit Bow 1


James Finley “Jim” Bow, 77, died Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, at the Riverstone Hospice Center at Billings.  
He was born Aug. 19, 1936, at Poplar, a son of Joseph Bow and Victoria Redwood. He was raised in the Wolf Point and Poplar communities of the Fort Peck Reservation.  
He married Judy L. Sugg Feb. 2, 1971, in Warm Springs, Ore., and together they had one son, William J. Bow Sr.
He was a mechanic his whole life and later decided to attend classes at Fort Peck Community College and earned an associate degree in automotive technology. He applied those newly acquired skills to many vehicles in the area.  He could be depended upon to fix a vehicle when others couldn’t.  He also received a degree in biology from Eastern Montana College, which is now known as Montana State University - Billings. Working on cars, pickups and most anything with a motor was his true passion in life and he excelled in this area.  
He was also a champion pool player in his younger years and always enjoyed this pastime playing on the local pool leagues. Playing Bingo was another pastime, which was most likely his favorite. You could always count on getting a smile and laugh from Jim at the Silverwolf Casino as he and Judy sat in their favorite spot.
He and Judy would travel to Hawaii and Washington state to visit with extended family and friends and, of course, to play Bingo. Many Bingo daubers were brought back to the Fort Peck Reservation as souvenirs.
Humor and making people smile and laugh was very important to him and being around him made people feel good. He could easily turn a frown upside down in a second. He could be depended upon to help to others in their time of need and would offer to help on a moment’s notice at any time. The small things in life mattered so much to him, especially spending time with his two grandsons, TJ and Jack.  
Survivors include his brother, Pete Delorme of Manitoba, Canada; his wife, Judy; son, William J. Bow Sr. of Wolf Point; daughter, Misty Sugg of Glasgow; and two grandsons.
His vigil service was held Wednesday, Aug. 13, at 7 p.m. at the Silver Wolf Casino in Wolf Point and his memorial service is Thursday, Aug. 14, at 10 a.m. at the Silver Wolf Casino with interment in the King Cemetery in Wolf Point.
