Larry Wayne Bowen

June 8, 1953 — March 16, 2023

Larry Wayne Bowen (Age 69) passed away unexpectedly due to a construction site accident on March 16, 2023 in South Jordan Utah. He died doing what he was most passionate about, building homes.
Larry was a master carpenter and General Contractor at Big B Construction. He was best known for his beautiful custom homes with elaborate wood work. His memory will live on through the work he left behind throughout the Salt Lake Valley and beyond.
Originally born in Driggs, he grew up in Bates Idaho. He was the eighth of nine children born to Mary Jeanette James and Lowell David Bowen.
Larry met the love of his life, Kelli (Peterson) in April 1979 at a disco dance at “The Study” in Salt Lake. They married in August of the same year. Larry was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on August 29, 1987. They were a perfect match from the start and spent very few days apart over the past 43 years. Kelli helped Larry with his construction business and they truly enjoyed their time together.
He is survived by his wife, his children Jason Bowen (Craig Ellison) Andrea (Greg Bruerton) and Jonathan Bowen. He had three beautiful grandchildren; Elizabeth, Katherine, and Collin all who adored their “Papa.”
