Born in Portland, May 27, 1924, Frederick, “Freddy” was son of the late Fred and Edna Gowen, also of Westbrook.

When they were liberated, he returned home, met and married Elizabeth Lawrence of Westbrook. He worked and retired from S.D. Warren Paper Mill. He harvested his trees for lumber and built his own house where he lived until his passing. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and boating at a cottage he built on Peabody Pond.
