Warren F. “Harry” Bowhall, 89, of Lawrence St. and formerly of Schenectady departed this life on Monday April 17, 2017. Born in Amsterdam, he was the son of the late Harry P. and Marion Armitage Bowhall. During the 1930s, he was a boy chorister at St. Ann’s Church in Amsterdam. He was a 1946 graduate of Nott Terrace High School in Schenectady.
Following his graduation from high school, Harry served three years in the US Air Force, four years in the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor. He graduated from St. Bonaventure’s University in 1955 and spent his business career with United Airlines in Washington DC.
Throughout the years the North Atlantic was his sea route between the US and the UK. He was equally at home on both sides of the Atlantic. He was an avid bibliophile, an enthusiastic reader and a constant learner.
There are no immediate survivors.
