At the time of his death, John Guthrie Bowman was employed as a Lorry Driver. His death certificate lists his cause of death as "contusions to the abdomens 3 days." Family folklore states that John was in the farmyard training a horse, when a young stable boy started teasing the horse. The agitated horse kicked John in the abdomen and he died as a result of his injuries.
