David Lee Bowman was born November 20, 1931 in Danville, Illinois, the son of Cornelious and Georgeanna (Lowe) Bowman. He was a 1949 graduate of Savanna High School Savanna, Illinois.

Lee was a manager for The Carlon Company for 8 years retiring in 1990. Prior to that he worked for Collis and after retirement he worked as a painter part-time. He was a member of the Chancy Lutheran Church where he was a very active church member serving on church council as president and vice president over the years. He also served one term on the Clinton City Council.
He enjoyed fixing things, jumping in to help family with painting, and home improvements. He was a man that loved family gatherings, singing, dancing and playing music. He loved to pitch horseshoes and playing catch but mostly he enjoyed time spent with his family especially his grandkids. His smile will never be forgotten.
