There was a young boy named Kenneth Ryan “Raboo” Bowman, born on October 24, 1974. He was a family man, OG, and ladies’ man. But he only had eyes for his lady whom he met in Newark, New Jersey. That lady’s name is Erasmus Janelle Bowman. During this time of meeting, their friendship grew into love. Their love gave them four beautiful children. There was Endanajah Bowman, who took Kenneth from the streets, then came Nasheem Bowman who reminded him of himself as a teenager. Oh, it’s another girl Anaijah Bowman who let Raboo know he has to protect her. Last but not least is Shyhiem Bowman who challenged him to let him know he’s a father now.

Janelle and Raboo continued their love to Pennsylvania. They felt God didn’t want them there - Raboo came to Dayton, Ohio to start his walk with his family to God. Kenneth is preceded in death by his loving father and mother. He has a host of brothers, sisters, nieces, aunts, uncles, nephews, and cousins. Kenneth never knew a stranger. To his children his quote is, “You can never say I never gave you a chance”. Kenneth took care of his family like no other. No man can compare to just one of him. He was custom made just for Janelle. He will be missed dearly, and his legacy will live on forever. He instilled in his children whatever you chose to do in life, make sure you become the boss. Take a moment to remember the laughs, his smile, and the joy it brought being able to provide for his family. Kenneth Ryan “Raboo” Bowman did exactly what God put him on this earth to do and we thank him for that.
