Obituary for Thomas "Tom" Lee Dowdle

Thomas Lee Dowdle of Hot Springs, Arkansas, passed away on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, at the age of 74.
Tom was born to Tommie and Bessie (Brackett) Dowdle on October 28, 1943, in Center Point, Arkansas, and grew up in Lockesburg. Everyone knew him as Sonny back then. A talented high school basketball player, Tom was recruited to play college ball at College of the Ozarks in Clarksville. After college, he served in the Missouri National Guard and also made a career in sales and marketing with large equipment manufacturers. In his later years, his entrepreneurial spirit compelled him to start and operate several small businesses. He logged a lot of miles traveling for work and maybe just a few more on some golf courses.
Tom is survived by his sons Jeff (Shelley) and Tim (Colleen); his grandchildren Lucy, Seth, and Chase; his sister Bonnie Goodson; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. The family wishes to thank Connie Cole for being his caregiver at the end.
No service is planned, but memorial contributions may be made in Tom's name to the charity or organization of your choice.
