It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Archie in his 81st year, on Saturday Dec. 7, 2013 at South Muskoka Memorial Hospital.

Archie was the beloved husband of Bonnie, dear father of Marjorie (Randy), Marilyn, and stepfather of Margaret and Ron. Archie was the son of the late Ethel (Colson) and Archie Sowman Sr.

Fondly remembered by his sister Pauline (Ed), brother James (Joy), brother-in-law Bob and his Aunt Ruth. He was grandfather of four, and great-grandfather of 3, as well as having many nieces and nephews. Archie was predeceased by sister Grace, and son-in-law Terry. Before health issues slowed him down, Bonnie and Archie travelled across Canada (east to west), the United States, and Alaska in their motor home. Bonnie is left with wonderful memories and pictures of their travels. Archie had his own business (Sowman Electric), and took great pride in being able to provide electrical services to Muskoka residents and cottagers for over thirty years.

Cremation has already taken place. Internment and remembrance gathering to take place in Spring of 2014.
