Visitation will begin at 11a.m. Monday, March 30, at Cure of Ars Catholic Church, 9401 Mission Road, Leawood, KS followed by Mass of the Resurrection at noon. Bob was born February 7, 1948 in Bethesda, Maryland, the son of Dr. Robert H. Owens and Mary Dugan Owens. Bob graduated from St. Agnes Grade School, Shawnee Mission North High School and Wichita State University. Bob was an Army veteran and served two tours of duty in Vietnam. Bob was an independent sales representative and sole proprietor. Bob is survived by his son, Bryan (Pam) and grandchildren Jonathan and Susannah of Plano, Texas and his son Robert of Overland Park. He is also survived by his brother, Mark, Prairie Village, Kansas; his sister, Mary Helen Thorpe, Sarasota, Florida, his brother John, Kansas City, Missouri, his sister, Janet Wells, of Leawood, Kansas, and his sister, Carol, of Shawnee, Kansas. He was preceded in death by his brother Patrick. Bob enjoyed the surprises in life and lived for being the unexpected life of the party. Bob was known as a devoted, committed father. He was a man of courage in the face of adversity, and integrity in business dealings. Bob had a unique, contrarian sense of humor. He was loyal to and loved by his extended family. The family would like to thank the staff of Kansas University Medical Center for the extraordinary care they provided Bob.
