  5. Sincere condolences to The Bowler and extended family and many friends. Uncle Mervyn was a great character and will be remembered for his cheek, his wit and his great love for Auntie Lyn, family, fishing and The Bombers. I would not do it for anyone else Uncle, but I will be a “Bomber” for a day in your memory. Love and blessings, may you rest in piece. Ruthie Bowler and Michael Bednorz.

  10. Sincere sympathy to Lyn and family on the passing of your dear Merv!
    Many memories of Merv in our younger days in Korumburra when he was the coolest “rocker” in the area! A jive with Merv was always on the agenda. Those legs and feet on the dance floor were amazing! Rest peacefully Merv.

  11. I have fond memories of Merv when he lived with the family whilst hairdressing in Korumburra, I made myself scares when mum said time for a haircut. Great guy, never any different, always a joke and that friendly smile.
    Lyn , thinking of you and your family at this sad moment.
