Larry Steven “Steve” Dowling, 67, went to be with the Lord Friday, July 5, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer.

“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three: but the greatest of these is love.” (1 Cor. 13:1.)

Steve is survived by his wife of 47 years, Barbara; son Zachary (Heather); daughter, Teresa (Mike) along with his grandchildren, Kenny, Mikey, and Katie. He is also survived by brothers, Bob (Debbie), and Tim along with the extended Putnam family and his loving nieces and nephews.

Steve retired from Dominion Power to enjoy time with family and friends on the farm and at Lake Gaston. He was an active member of Lebanon United Methodist Church in Jarratt.

His journey in this life is over, but he has been an inspiration and entertainer to all he met. The family would like to thank all of the care providers throughout this journey – you were his inspiration.

The family will receive friends 4-6 p.m. Sunday, July 7 at Owen Funeral Home, 303 S. Halifax Rd, Jarratt, Virginia where the funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Monday, July 8. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to Lebanon United Methodist Church, c/o Lou Harrell, 25123 BlueStar Hwy., Jarratt, Virginia 23867.

Online condolences may be shared with the family at www.owenfh.com.
