84-year-old Lance Bowler was one of two Canberrans at Calvary Haydon aged care facility to die with COVID-19 last night.
Mr Bowler had two children and four grandchildren, but he’d been unable to see them in recent months due to ongoing lockdowns.
His daughter Jennifer says she wants her father remembered for the real “character” he was with a “big sense of humour”.
