Obituary of Lloyd Thomas Bowser, Jr.
Dr. Lloyd Thomas Bowser, Jr., affectionately known by his family as "Tommy", was born on December 25, 1963 to Llod and Geneva Bowser in Baltimore, Maryland. He was educated in the Baltimore City Public Schools system. He graduated from Walbrook High School in their arts program in 1981. It was during his time at Walbrook that Tommy pursued his passion of acting while participating in a variety of plays in the Arena Players. In 1985, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology in an Honors program at the University of Maryland at Eastern Shore. While at UMES, he joined Alpha Phi Alpha Inc., fraternity. He went on to complete his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine in 1993. After completing residencies in New York, Delaware, and Maryland, he proudly opened his own practice, enthusiastically and caringly tending to patients from all walks of life. He later became a staff podiatrist for Erickson's Oak Crest Living Community in Parkville where he provided podiatric services to many elderly community members, who shared their life stories and memories with him. His care for others extended to his family also: for the past several months, he tended to the needs of his ailing parents, caring for them directly, taking them for drives, talking with his father and connecting with him over their love of music. Lloyd married Neeta Kataria in 1995; from that union he had two sons, Rippen and Rohan. He was a committed and devoted father, who put his children first. He coached basketball when his son was younger and spent many hours at various activities in support of his children. From the time of their birth, he shared stories of Rippen and Rohan with all those around him. Lloyd was an outgoing and enthusiastic person, who lit up a room when he walked into it. People were naturally drawn to his infectious smile and laughter. He was a man of ideas, always pursuing and incorporating technologies and novel concepts into his home and work life. He was a lifelong devotee of fitness – no weight was too heavy—and, in 2001, he participated in and completed Baltimore's first marathon. Lloyd developed special relationships with people through the different phases of his life and career, mentoring some, being supported by others, and always took time out to listen to the problems of others and offer support. He was a regular at many different coffee shops and gathering places, where he was greeted like an old friend. Lloyd was comfortable with people from many different backgrounds, and spent years actively involved with the Asian Indian community in Maryland and DC, where he attended many functions, weddings, and parties. He was embraced with affection and will be dearly missed. He visited India with his wife Neeta, and later their children, and was equally loved there. He traveled with family to hindu shrines at the foothills of the Himalayas. He was an honored relative at weddings, and was admired by throngs of Indians who were in awe of his "muscles" and enthusiastic embrace of Indian culture. He had a special relationship with his cousin Rahul, who looked to him for advice and guidance. He shared many stories over the years of his Indian experiences.
