We celebrated Bowie's retirement at the Grad Show this year, we knew he was retiring for over a year, but it has finally hit home. Bowie helped me print a client order this week at work and when he left then it hit me. It is sad to see him go, I have worked with Bowie for over ten years and I love the man. He has been a mentor, a teacher and a good friend and I will miss him. His bad puns and his great sense of humour was always appreciated. Everyone seemed to know him too.
Funny Bowie story, one day I got picked up by a courtesy shuttle to get my car at the dealership service centre. The driver was very friendly we talked and he asked me where I worked, I said the Photography Program at Algonquin. His response, o you must know Michael Bowie. Classic Bowie moment, which happens often. The man seems to know everyone, he was even the first person to tell me my sister's brother-in-law passed away. Neither of them lives in Ottawa by the way so he seems to know everyone everywhere.
Bowie, you are already missed I wish you all the best on your next adventure.
