Yes, weren't we fortunate to have the fun loving Dad that Henry Bowles was to all of us! As a child Dad represented fatherhood and responsibility. And my fondess memories were the Saturday morning trips to Sunset Foods, updating the Kortese's on our family activities and loading (unloading) tons of food. I actually believed that Dad owned the Food Store.. and as I can recall we were treated that way by the workers. Of course everyone can recall Dad's big heart and the end of the day mission to some poor family in Zion that would always share in trips to Sunset Foods. Yes, Dad created that genuine trait of giving and sharing in me, that I so much cherish. As an adult, I certainly appreciated Dad's ability to rebound from set-backs that would destroy most people. He would talk and move from deal to deal, never closing on the "big one", yet just as excited and driven to achieve as though success was only a small fraction of the art. Each time I achieve or create a deal, I look up to the sky, whisper to Dad and ask him for guidance on the next one. Happy Father's Day!!!! Johnny
It is really too bad that only two of Henry's children could think of something good to say about their Dad.
