Jeff “Boogie” Sowders  42, of Hartford, Kentucky passed away on the 7th of September, 2018 at his home.  Jeffrey Lynn Sowders was born May 4, 1976 in Owensboro, Kentucky to Joseph Rogers and Vonda Jean Love Sowders, was married to the former Stacy Dawn Watts in March of 2012 and was better known as “Boogie” to both his family and friends.  Jeff was a 1994 Graduate of McLean County High School, was earlier employed at Painters Local #156 and most recently worked at Waupaca Foundry in Tell City, Indiana.  His greatest enjoyment if life was treating his family to every kind of exciting recreation he could imagine, trips to Beech Bend Amusement Park, Holiday World, McDonald’s Children’s Play Areas, Smothers Park, swim parks, and right in their backyard including play from a zip line, to bouncy house party games, to bike rides, wagon pulls, and a tree house build with his own two hands.  Jeff was an avid musician who could express his talents on a set of drums for hours.  He enjoyed being part of a musical group at Living Faith Baptist Church.  He loved speed and the excitement of taking curves on a go-cart.  Jeff was preceded in death by his father, Joe Sowders and by a brother, John Wayne Morris.

          Survivors include his wife, Stacy Sowders; three daughters, Zoie Sowders, Amelia Jo Sowders and Vivian Jae Sowders; his mother, Vonda Morris of Rumsey; and two brothers, Jamie Sowders (Christa) of Owensboro and Christopher Cook of Rumsey.

          Graveside services will be held at 2:00 P.M. Tuesday at Poplar Grove Cemetery in McLean County with Brother Steven Kibbons officiating.  Friends may visit with Jeff’s family from 11:00 A.M. until 1:45 P.M. Tuesday at Muster Funeral Homes, Calhoun Chapel.

          All three of Jeff’s daughters display talents and gifts that have inspired the family to establish a trust fund for their education at Independence Bank.  The Jeffrey Lynn Sowders family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to the Sowders’ Educational Trust Fund; C/O Independence Bank; P.O. Box 988; Owensboro, Kentucky  42302.  Memorial contribution envelopes will be available at Musters in Calhoun.
