Bowdre was a postal carrier and a postal supervisor in Aiken for over 30 years. He and his father Johnny Burriel Bates built Square Circle Ranch (located off of Highway 25 and Rainbow Falls Rd) when he was a young boy. Bowdre inherited the ranch upon his father's death. He purchased cattle, horses, chickens, goats and built several ponds for catfish and bass fishing. He also cleared land for four different hay fields which were worked each year by his children and grandchildren. He married Sandy J. Carroll and together they had two sons, Bruce Bates and Bowdre Elwood Bates, Jr. They later divorced and he married Francis Moore (aka MawMaw). He was known as 'Pappy' to his grandchildren.
