Obituary for Christopher "Shane" Bowles

Christopher “Shane” Bowles, age 25 and a resident of Lansing and native of Commerce Township, Michigan, died on April 15, 2018 after struggling with addiction for many years.

Born in Pontiac on April 21, 1992, Shane grew up in Commerce Township where he was a graduate of Walled Lake Northern High School. In 2016 he graduated from the Douglas J Aveda Institute in Lansing and served an internship with Level 6 Salon in Milford. Shane went on to work as as an assistant at the Matthew Ryan Salon in Lansing, as a stylist at Heat Salon at the Michigan Athletic Club in East Lansing, and most recently with Jude’s Barber Shop in Okemos. He also enjoyed working at Disc Traders video game store in Lansing.

Shane loved animals, especially cats, but most of all, people. He loved his friends and clients, his bands, and his friends and family dearly. He was a favorite among his younger cousins and had many endearing nicknames given to him by family and friends, including “The Bird” and “Shane the Pain. His Men’s Group in Lansing, Lansing Teen Challenge, was a beacon in his life. His friends there gave him a second chance at life and helped instill in him the faith that he needed to fight his addiction that he had fought since he was seventeen.

Shane was an accomplished drummer and musician and was currently playing with and excited about his new band, After Branches. He also played with the Lansing Teen Challenge Christian music ministry.

He is survived by his parents Joseph and Michele, his brother Joe, sister-in-law Sarah, nephew Oliver, "Mema" Judith Nestor, many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and special God-parents Denise & Brian and uncle Bob.

A Funeral Service will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty St., Milford, on Saturday, April 21, at 12 Noon. Friends may visit on Saturday from 10AM until the time of service. For further information please phone 248-684-6645.
