Virgil L. Sowers

Vineland – Virgil Lee Sowers, age 83 of Vineland, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family and friends, Tuesday, November 20, 2018. He had been in declining health.

Raised in Vineland to the late Aurthor and Jennie (Hollowell) Sowers, Virgil worked at Armstrong Cork Co. and then he manufactured re-bar at Ollie’s Manufacturing Co. for several years. He then started his own produce delivery business that he owned and operated for over 20 years, retiring in 2012.

Virgil loved the Jersey Shore. He also enjoyed farming many different types of vegetables over the years. Traveling to Florida, roller skating, ice skating, and hiking were a few of Virgils other favorite pastimes. But most of all, Virgil treasured the time that he was able to spend with his family, especially when watching his grandchildren.

Virgil will be sadly missed by his wife of over 59 years, Jeanne (Harris) Sowers of Vineland; two daughters, Marilyn Scrivani and Kathleen McCarthy, both of Vineland; nine grandchildren, Danielle, Nicholas, Christina, Alysa, Michelle, John, Christopher, Dominic, and Jeffrey; and two great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his son, Jeffrey Sowers.
