Vernon Walker Bowlin, born September 26, 1914, died in Torrance, on July 13, 2005. The Bowlin family moved to California when Vernon was about 10. He attended school in Los Angeles. Later Vernon worked at the L.A. produce market at Bowlin & Sons, then in aerospace, and as a milk man, before moving to the South Bay. Vernon lived in Redondo Beach and Torrance and owned two restaurants. Vernon and Dorothy Helsley were married in 1936 and raised two daughters, Nancy and Rosalie. He served in the U.S. Army during WWII as a Staff Sgt. In 1965 he moved to Tulsa OK and returned to California 20 years later.
